Articles suggesting hot showers are working off the logic that cold showers = energising, hot showers = relaxing. However, logic and science aren't always in corroboration with each other. You don't have to be bereft of energy to sleep, you need the conditions of your surroundings and conditions of your body to be optimal. So while pro hot shower articles work off logic, most pro cold shower articles (google btw(Original post by hateme)
Most articles I've read recommend hot showers, I myslef hot showers help me sleep while cold ones wake you up
Have you got any articles or papers which show cold showers are better

As for the science, again, the body doesn't overcompensate for temperature change caused by a shower - it will simply work to return itself to its desired temp, which at that time of night just happens to be a low temperature. Making something cold that's already cold is a hell of a lot easier than making it hot and then trying to make it cold again. Think of it like having air con in your car, and the air con is set to a low temperature, but the air con is currently working to get it to that temperature (this is pretty much what's happening to your body near your bed time). What's going to help the car get to 15 degrees quicker - going into a pretty hot warehouse and causing to the car temperature to rise, or going into a cold warehouse where the temperature is lower?
Need to sleep ASAP, hot or cold shower?
