I have been searching, studying & seeking a better way to be... a better way to walk through life. I have encountered practices involving breath. I have encountered meditative practices. Then, I came across cold shower challenges on the web with its reported benefits.

There are techniques & methods for dealing with frustrations & anxieties triggered by undesirable situations. That’s all right, but at that point you’ve already lost self-control (you’re already frustrated/anxious against your will), and have been put in a place of having to struggle (& expend energy) to regain self-control, as well as already having a cascade of stress & inflammatory processes that were also concomitantly triggered.

To work toward getting to a place where you do not find yourself having to struggle to control your emotional response to negative external stimulus to a much greater degree.
To work toward getting to a place so that you, across the board, find yourself feeling & responding DIFFERENTLY to things (traffic, relationships, work deadlines, future financial concerns, etc.) that in the past brought about responses & emotions like fears, frustrations & anxieties.
