I have recently read a article sharing information about the benefits of cold showers.
Is having cold showers really beneficial, and can it affect health?
I am excercising constantly and the cold water allows muscle recovery much more faster than hot or warm water.
Should I continue to take cold showers or is this overthinking...

OK I have read that after a workout a cold shower could be beneficial, but are you just working out and haven't just had surgery or anything like it.
Warm muscles are easier to stretch and exercise....warm up and cool down
At the time of injury, cold shower or ice massage will reduce inflammatory reaction, which help recovery.
However, after a while, few days after the injury, warm shower or warm massage is more beneficial. Because it help to wash out inflammatory material from the site of injury.
If you are just having muscle pain from regular exercise, it can be benefical to have a cold shower just after the exercise.
