It may sound like a pretty simple question, but there’s more to the decision we’re willing to bet. You may have a habit in place, like you shower in the morning to get pumped and energised for the day, or you shower at the end to wash off the stress and dirt of a long day. Which is it for you?
Personally, I shower in the morning because I need that jolt of water, initially cold then hot, to get me started and energised, otherwise I’m virtually sleepwalking through the first half of my day. That said, I had a conversation with a friend who noted that this means that when I come home from work, I’m pretty much sitting in and sleeping in whatever dirt and built-up stress and tension I’ve accumulated over the course of the day. That’s not a bad point, and true enough, in some places it’s more appropriate to shower at the end of the day than it is to bathe in the beginning. Instead, a quick wash-up is called for in the morning (versus mine in the evening) and you’re out the door to tackle the day, fresh faced.
