why water is so effective at waking people up?

In: Biology

A very rushed sensation of different temperatures interacting with your body.

Have you ever taken a cold shower? That will wake you up, instantly!

Hence why water torture has been used since the dawn of time.

It’s a shock. The same way a very loud noise will wake someone up.

Especially cold water. Water is very good at conducting heat, much better than air. So if you come into contact with cold water, it’ll suck heat from your body very efficiently which will feel very cold and will be a big shock.

If you jump into cold water like a lake or river or the sea, you’ll basically experience shock.

Your body is wired to turn up all of your senses to maximum when it’s in shock because it usually means there’s some kind of danger.
