Do you shower in the morning or night?

What is it for you: a morning shower or an evening/night shower?

According to a survey done by Each Night of more than 1,000 people, 49.5 percent say they prefer to shower in the morning. Those same people also said they were more satisfied with their life than nighttime showerers. Interesting!

Some people start their day by jumping right in the shower and don’t feel quite “awake” if they haven’t. Others like to save their shower for the end of the day—perhaps it makes them sleepy or they would rather get into bed clean. Which is it for you?

Work around the farm during the day. Take shower at end of work day to remove the dirt and perspiration that I acquire while working. Rarely take a shower in the morning because I’m likely to just get dirty during the day and have to take a second shower in the evening.

For over 40 years I shower every day right after I got home from work, so that was usually around 4 in the afternoon. I heard a dermatologist on the radio say that showering every day drys out your skin and scalp. Since I’m retired, I now only shower 3 times a week, unless I have been working in the yard or something. My skin isn’t as dry as it had been so it must have worked.

Only shower after working on equipment, or in the yard, whatever part of the day, or when wife will not let me in the house. 112 degree bath at night to relax muscles for a nights sleep.

Always when I am getting ready to head out for the day, so morning or afternoon. If I’ve been doing sweaty or grungy work during the day, another in the afternoon is always available.

Just depends the activity of the day. If I have yard or any work I’ll do it the coolest part of the day (morning) I will shower after and be done for the day if non activity during the day maybe at night or at least a sponge bath. I sleep in my PJ’s so not much touching sheets and not often on the sheets but with a blanket on top of another blanket.

Whenever I find myself near warm water. I tend to boondock a lot.

Shower at night regardless of my daily activities. Always concerned what may have stuck (organic or chemical) to my body during the day.

Both morning and night. The morning shower gets me up, clean and ready for work. The evening shower washes off the days work and lets me feel clean and relax around the house. My job ranges from sales in a dealership setting, to mechanic in the shop. I also have a small landscape business I operate after my day job is over. So some days when I am just in the office I come home nice and clean and probably wouldn’t need to shower. Other days I come home and could wring the sweat out of my shirts that covered in dirt, grease, metal shavings, grass, etc. I enjoy making money and don’t mind getting dirty in the process as long as I get my two showers a day!

Acknowledging that this is a considerable generalization (ie, don’t jump all over me), seems likely that blue collar people prefer showers at end of the day, while office workers prefer showering in the morning. I’ve actually switched from morning – when I working (white collar job) – to evening showers now that I’m retired and spend more of my day working up a sweat. No right or wrong answer.

Ideally both. A hot shower relaxes me for bed and I’m a sweater so I like to wash the sweat off in the morning.

I have worked years in job where I would get dirty and sweaty, I would take a shower when I got home to be clean to eat dinner and relax before going to bed. I like going to bed clean.

Yep when I was still working I took my shower after work, now retired most of the time I shower in the AM, unless I have been doing something during the day besides breathing then I take it at night. Basically any activity requiring sweating causes me to shower afterward, and I sweat at the drop of a hat. A fellow worker I knew years ago would break out in a heavy sweat just thinking about working. Lol

So over half the people in this survey ( at time I write this) go to bed dirty. How can you get in a bed dirty. Even if you didn’t do anything physical you are still dirty and I always relax and sleep better after I shower.

Do you wash your bed linen every day? How can you put your freshly washed body into a dirty bed?

I agree. I think Brandon was being just a little judgmental here.

If you only put a clean body in the bed, the linen is therefore also clean if it was freshly washed. We wash our bed sheets at least once a week and we only put freshly washed bodies in it. How would then the bed be dirty? I can only assume you don’t wash your bed linen very often and don’t go to bed with a clean body.

Everyone definition of dirty is different. I don’t consider showering in the morning and not taking a shower before going to bed dirty. If I work out side and get sweated up I’ll take another shower afterwards.

Hey Brandon, just curious, do you put on those ‘dirty’ pair of pants, sweater or jacket from the day before over your clean morning body? Just saying!

Yesterday’s poll showed about how often one changed their jeans.
