Between family dynamics, travel, and increased spending, managing stress around the holidays is a struggle. Luckily, not all stress is bad stress; hormesis is the concept that intentional spurts of stress can actually help your body adapt faster and support your long-term health. Heat exposure, intermittent fasting, and high-intensity internal training (HIIT) can all kickstart hormesis, but one of our favorite ways is a cold plunge tub.

A popular cryotherapy tool, cold plunge tubs are developed to expose your body to as much cold water as possible. While designs may vary—some require you to add ice while others offer a cooling component–they all share one thing in common: they're pricey. Although well-worth the investment at full price, there's another way to score a cold plunge tub at a more affordable price right now: the Ice Barrel Black Friday sale.

As part of the brand's biggest sale of the year, the company is offering $200 off the original Ice Barrel, as well as 25% off accessories and free shipping for all orders. This drops the final price for an Ice Barrel to less than $1,000. And if the reviews are any indication, it's a discount you won't want to miss.

Everything you need to know about Ice Barrel.

Designed to look like a barrel, this popular cold plunge tub is made from recyclable materials that keep the 55-pound design lightweight and easy to move. Each barrel holds up to 105 gallons of ice water and has a 42-inch deep design. This extra height allows you to sit up vertically into the water while still surrounding your body in ice water up to your shoulders.

While there's no thermostat, the tub doesn't require an electricity source to keep water cool; simply fill the barrel with a few bags of ice and immerse yourself into a rejuvenating experience. Once you're done with the treatment, the draining system makes it easy to get rid of any excess water.

The barrel also comes with a step stool to ensure a safe entrance into the tub, as well as a UV protective cover to prevent sun damage. The sleek design also comes in two colors: black and tan.

" I usually use it after a workout and it is amazing how quick it kicks you into recovery," writes a reviewer. "I am working up to be able to stay in longer and longer each time, but what a great tool to have to help with both mind and body recovery."
