I think everybody prefers night or day. For me I enjoy them in the morning, they seem to keep me motivated better. However having a 16 month old daughter sometimes I have to wait until she is down for the evening. What time of the day is easier for you?

I shower in the morning. I wakes me up, makes me feel all freash and clean as I start my day, plus I have to do my hair every day because I have fine hair and it gets flat during the night.

Well, ideally I would prefer to take a bath in the morning. My hair is super long so I hate taking a shower before I go to bed, because then I have to blow dry it and that just takes too long. I also have a 7 month old, so it's kind of like, I take it when I get it. Most of the time I just take one in the early afternoon since that's when he takes his morning nap, and I usually have a good hour to myself.

I have 3 kids so evening is easier for me because I do it after they go to bed. It is too hard to do it while they are awake because they are always fighting or getting into something. I like getting a shower better in the morning because it wakes me up and refreshes me for the day but with the kids it isn't possible. The only down side it to shower in the morning I would have to get up earlier.

It depends. If my son hasn't took a bath on his own or with my younger sister than he gets a bath with me. That usually goes in the evening. If he doesn't need one then i wait untill the morning i get up early to take one.

I prefer in the evening, because it helps me relax after a long day. Helps me sleep.

I'm not a fan of going to bed with wet head either. It completely messes your hair up for in the morning!

I prefer the morning and that is generally what I do, though on occassion I will take one later in the day, especially if I just get up in the morning and start cleaning house.

Well, I bath twice a day. Once in the morning and then just before I go to bed. Our country is warm and I really feel uncomfortable if I won't be able to take a bath. I also cannot sleep I if I can't shower or bath. The only time perhaps that I do not take a bath is when I have fever. But as long as I am well, I always take a bath.

I prefer to take my shower/bath in the evening so I have more time to soak/wash and then follow up with an all-over lotion to keep skin soft. Plus it feels good to be squeaky clean when you climb into bed.

I always prefer to bathe in the evening when I've finished for the day. I am very busy all day, then after dinner, at about 7pm, I will have an hour in the bath and then go downstairs and watch some television before going to bed. A bath helps me sleep better at night I think. If I have a bath before I go to bed, I will drift off a lot quicker. Saying that, I sometimes like a nice cool shower in the morning, as it helps me to wake up ready for work or college!

I prefer to bathe in the morning. I work night but I still like to take my bath in the mornings after I am done working.

I bathe in the evening. I sleep better when I'm clean, especially if I have worked out or done something that made me feel dirty, like being outside for a long time. It relaxes me and lets sleep come easier. Sometimes I will bathe in the morning, especially if I have to get dressed up for something because its easier for me to get my hair done and stuff. Normally, though, Im a nighter.

I'm to practical! I take them in the evening as to me, it is really gross to go to bed and sleep all night with all your daily oderes and smells! THey stay on your body, cling to the sheets, then you get up and shower, but the smells and oders stay in the sheets - especially if you make the bed and "store" the smells in there all day. Then you go get back into bed, with all todays smells and oders, combine them with the smells and oders of last night, and it just gets gross. But if you shower before bed, you are clean, your sheets are clean and providing nothing else goes on, the sheets are reasonably clean the next night of two!

I like to have showers in the morning to wake me up and baths at night to relax me and help me to sleep. I know using all that water is not very environmentally friendly, so I usually go for the morning shower.

I shower in the mornings becasue it "get's me up and running" for the day! On the rare occasion I have had to shower of the evening I find that I do not sleep very well. I guess it is just a habit I established a long time ago. I ned my get up and go! LOL
