I don't have a bath because I prefer to have a shower unless I am really stressed out, it saves water to have a shower and it's quicker and more convenient too. 5 hours straight in front of the computer is not good my friend, do you take a break in those 5 hours, walk around, do something different, I take it you don't sit for 5 hours solid, that is NOT good for you or your eyes! You need to rest them

I take a bath twice a day... one in the morning before i go to work and the other one at night before i go to sleep... like you, i spend a lot of hours infront of the computer... but i make it a point to rest myself or my eyes before taking a bath... if i don't take a bath... it would be very hard for me to sleep...

I do take a bath daily, even if I lack sleep, or if I was infront of the computer for a long time. I think taking a bath cools your system, giving you that refreshing feeling.

Yes, I am very particular in taking bath everyday, be it a summer months, winter or rainy season, I make it a poitn to take bath, atleast once in a day. Bathing rejuvenates me and recharges my energies for the day. Water works as anelgesic on our bodies.

Nice topic.. I used to take bath two times everyday.. one in the morning and other in the evenning.. Its good to practice this... Because bathing refreshes us. I loves bathing in bathtub.. Spending 5 hours continously in front of computer is not att all a good habit.. It may damage our eyes.. So itz better to have bath everyday rather than spending five hours in front of computer..

I would say it won't. I attended a seminar about eye care and many of the ophthalmologist claim that there is no direct relation that if you take a bath while your eyes are tired will be harmed at all. It is a myth. They even suggest that when you have tired and red eyes to put a cold compress to relieve your eyes from that state where there is too much blood in your eyes and needs to refresh a little bit.

Yes I take a bath daily, usually late at night when kiddies are asleep. Good chill out time. Being on the computer can harm your eyes if you stare at it for long periods of time. Make sure you have good lighting. I have been worried about this too as I have been using computer alot more and my eyes are starting to get sore.

Yes. I am taking a bath daily. It is a good practice to take a bath daily. You should take a bath especially when you go to work.

Hello dear julyteen. I take a shower every day, but not in winter when it is so cold. Right now in spring, a shower a day is a must for me, either in the morning or in the evening. I love to take a shower, as it makes me enjoy a healthier life. I also spend more than five hours a day straight before the laptop. I have not exact idea whether it is the same to a laptop. I hope that it is different from desktop.

I take a bath EVERY SINGLE DAY. I take a bath twice a day actually. I don't think you'll last here without taking a bath cos I live in a tropical country. About your question, I don't believe that taking a bath after staying so long in front of the computer or tv will harm your eyes. There's really no connection whatsoever. Hehe! Cheers!

Maybe before you go in front of your computer you must took a bath first so that if it's true your eyes will be safe. But me I do took a bath everyday even though I was in my computer for many hours. And I can say that my eyes are still fine as of now.

i live in tropical country hun, so its definetely warm temperature almost every days and every months. we only have two season in here which are rain and drought season. so we should take a bath at least twice a day, in the morning when we would start our activities and in the evening when we back from our activities and want to rest. we should take a bath cause our body runs out the sweat due to the climate and honestly i just heard it for the first time that taking bath daily would harm our eyes. is it tru? i a curious to know more then

What a question! I think in order to be fresh and healthy all day long we need to take a bath first thing in the morning. Taking a bath before going to sleep is optional.

Of course I do. I live in a tropical country and it is really hot and warm here so you gonna sweat a lot. Taking a bath freshens me and energizes my body. It is also a way to counteract the heat. I do take a bath at least twice a day or even more when it's really hot.
