Hot showers relieve tension and soothe stiff muscles. Studies have shown that taking a hot shower can amp up your oxytocin levels and ease anxiety. A hot shower also acts as a natural decongestant to relieve cold symptoms, since the hot steam moisturizes nasal passages. 

Turning your shower cold for the last five minutes can help "Shock" your body awake. This instant change in temperature relieves your body of fatigue and increases your mental alertness. A "cooler" shower (around 68 degrees) for two to three minutes once or twice daily is recommended by researchers as a treatment for depression.
