Shower at morning or night?

Ok so I got into a stupid argument with some friends over drinks. I shower in the night mainly. My reasoning is that I like to be clean when I hop into bed. I want the filth from the whole day to be off of me. I am also good with showering both morning and afternoon, but there are a ton of people that only shower in the morning. I am not a big fan of this because you don't really get dirty at night in bed and instead your going to accumulate filth on you. So I prefer a night shower, obviously can do both, but mainly I need to be clean before bed otherwise I feel uncomfortable. How's your shower routine?

Morning.

1. I don't like the feeling of being wet and getting into my bed. 
2. I (and most people imo) look like a mess coming out of bed. I need to shower to groom myself and look "clean."

3. Showering wakes me up. It's like an "on" switch for the day.

For some holiday, my friend gave me a set of natural soap, I first threw it into the chest of drawers because it smelled very, for an example, like a clothes freshener. Once, having forgotten to buy soap, I remembered a set of natural soap, I took it out and used it for its intended purpose, and not for flavoring clothes, I was very pleasantly surprised. How soft and cuddly it is. Skin like a baby. Definitely a delight.

I tend to use a towel after showering so my bed stays dry

I shower in the morning and at night. I run in the morning so I need to shower before I start work, but I also like to get into a clean bed and am starting to work out at night as well.

Night. Totally agree with you - I need to be clean when I get into bed. Showering twice a day is way too much; over-showering is bad for your skin and hair. 50% of the time I'll wet my hair in the morning if it doesn't look good after combing it when it was damp the previous night.

I do both if I need to (e.g., morning workout or if I'm feeling particularly groggy after waking up), but like you, my mandatory one is the nighttime shower.  Same reasoning...doesn't feel right to me to be getting into bed after a full day.

That said, it's been different during WFH...if I don't go outside that much during the day, I care less about not having showered before bed.

Me yesterday:

Wake up in a mild panic drenched in sweat around 3:30am. Throw my soaked blanket over a chair to dry and hop in the ice tub. Once we have control of our breathing and chill for a bit, hot shower to rinse off the alcohol hydrogen peroxide water. SHOWER #1

Post-workout shower SHOWER #2

Feel anxious about all the boxes. Start breaking down boxes. Boxes everywhere. Now recycling bin is full of broken down boxes and I'm sweaty. SHOWER #3

Feed the baby. Baby covered in food. Baby shit herself too. Decide rinsing the baby off in the shower will be easiest. Sleeves are soaked. Hood falls over head and is now also soaked. Head is soaked. It will be easier to just get in with the baby at this point. SHOWER #4

Go out to do some work shit and errands. Impulse buy an Xmas tree. Come home and bring in the tree. Wash off the COVID. SHOWER #5

Decide now is a good time to put up the tree. Takes two attempts. Covered in sweat and pine needle bullshit. Screwing things in is hard. SHOWER #6

Fuck the misses. Takes forever 'cause lexapro dick. Cum and collapse. Recover. SHOWER #7

Night and again in the morning post-workout (if I get to do one). Getting into your bed after being out in the elements all day like that? Thats dirty af lmaooo. Wash your face in the morning with cold water and you'll get the same "wake up" effect of a full shower

Quit showering ... its IRR dilutive. Should go into your compensation meeting smelling like a hobo with flies and MS across your forehead ... and depending how badly you want to impress, missing tooth. WFH, how else they supposed to know you're working your ass off? Dont forget to rehearse Oliver Twist... "can I please has more (bonus), Sir?"

With wfh my hygiene has gone to shit. I shower once every 2-3 days. I really like that oily, matted hair look. I brush my teeth every other day. Wear the same set of clothes for two weeks. I know I'm disgusting.

What kind of work are you doing that gets you so dirty?    Most people here are in front of a computer all day.

Ha! These guys acting like they work in the mine. "Oh how can you sleep without showering!? That's so DIRTY!" Shut your mouth, I prefer my natural smell, so does the GF. All men should smell a little musty, it's the most natural way.

As someone else stated, if you work in a major city and you take public transportation, you should seriously consider showering at night, its absolutely disgusting. People are saying shower before bed makes you sweaty. I am not saying shower before bed, but at the very least once you get home, you should take a shower. Yes we sit in front of a computer all day long, but we are constantly touching and being in areas that are dirty. Obviously during Covid, I don't care when you shower, if you're staying home.

How the heck do people not shower at night before going to sleep...? Even though say you basically sit all day in front of the computer, if you are wearing socks (I hope that's the case) and have been in the subway or just outside in general, you still get dirty. Bruh wtf.

I always shower in the morning. 

If had a long day and am trying to relax I'll take a bath. (Yes I am a guy who bathes give me shit for it, I'm not changing) 

I'll grab an orange or tangerine eat that while having a beer in the bath. The citrus from the orange is very relaxing in the hot water and smells great.

Otherwise I'll shower at the end of the day.

Shower at night for sure. It's kind of gross to sleep and roll around in your filth from the day. Also probably better for your skin. If you have longer hair this is probably ideal.

I only shower in the morning if I work out that day, or I have a lot of time to get ready and want to look/smell a little fresher. Always shower before a date and usually before going to a club or bar, but if I have no time I just re up on the deodorant and splash some cologne on.

I love a broad margin to my life. Sometimes, in a summer morning, having taken my accustomed bath, I sit in my sunny doorway from sunrise till noon, rapt in a revery, amidst the pines and hickories and sumachs, in undisturbed solitude and stillness, while the birds sing around or flitted noiseless through the house, until by the sun falling in at my west window, or the noise of some traveller's wagon on the distant highway, I was reminded of the lapse of time. I grew in those seasons like corn in the night, and they were far better than any work of the hands would have been. They were not time subtracted from my life, but so much over and above my usual allowance. I realized what the Orientals mean by contemplation and the forsaking of works. For the most part, I minded not how the hours went. The day advanced as if to light some work of mine; it was morning, and lo, now it is evening, and nothing memorable is accomplished. Instead of singing like the birds, I silently smiled at my incessant good fortune. As the sparrow had its trill, sitting on the hickory before my door, so had I my chuckle or suppressed warble which he might hear out of my nest. My days were not days of the week, bearing the stamp of any heathen deity, nor were they minced into hours and fretted by the ticking of a clock; for I lived like the Puri Indians, of whom it is said that "for yesterday, today, and tomorrow they have only one word, and they express the variety of meaning by pointing backward for yesterday forward for tomorrow, and overhead for the passing day. -Henry David Thoreau

"If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them." - Bruce Lee
