What time of the day should you avoid showering?

Now that I’m in my middle years, one of my favorite things to do is to Google how I can optimize my life in a “shortcut” while eating a snack.

Thanks to data-obsessed online obsessives, I have discovered that there is an “ideal” time to do almost anything.

When to have morning coffee? When is exercise more beneficial?

For example, exercising in the afternoon reduces the risk of early death more than exercising in the morning or evening. According to controversial neurobiologist Andrew Huberman, drinking your morning coffee two hours after waking up increases your cognitive ability and energy.

Is there an ideal time to shower?

So is there an ideal time to shower? I’m glad you asked that. I’ve done a lot of research on this and it’s definitely a complex issue.

Like the correct way to hang toilet paper, the timing of showers is divisive. One group argues that showering in the morning is the only way to survive the day.

The night shower team thinks that anyone who goes to bed without a shower is a savage and their sheets are full of all kinds of dirt.

“Mediators” say that getting wet twice a day brings out the best in both sides. An equally passionate group believes it will dry out your skin and multiply your water bill.

According to a survey, gender also changes the answers. Men are more likely to shower in the morning than women.

Should you shower in the morning or in the evening?

Do scientists have a definitive answer? Unfortunately, no. The consensus is this: Do whatever works for you. Of course, there are also things you should never do. In Bustle, the experts say: “Showering in the middle of the day is of little use, and when it comes to hygiene, it’s almost irrelevant.”

As someone who works from home, I mostly take my showers in the middle of the day and I have to say that I resent these words! Mid-day showers are so underrated. However, it relaxes you after the morning shift and energizes you before the afternoon work.

It’s also the perfect way to slack off!
