  1. Breathing under a cold shower is not that difficult, it's just that sometimes there is a short-term tension in the chest muscles, and for a moment the breath seems to catch (the laryngeal muscles contract).�

    This is a protective reflex that prevents drowning. In children, it works in warm water, and in adults, you can observe its extinction, including with repeated douches, even for a few minutes, you can notice how the manifestation of this reflex weakens.

    It works more strongly if the water is cold, as well as if it gets on your face. It can be the cause of fright in young children when they are doused with water.
