I had no doubt about shower habit until I had conversation with some western guys for this topic.I thought all people take shower before sleeping at night,well,that is what all Chinese people do.But there was one day,I can't remember the main topic we were talking about,one of my colleagues(a French guy)mentioned he take shower every morning!I was so surprised and asked some English guys,they said they do the same....I don't think I could fall asleep without a shower,it can take away all day's pressure about work,about life..the most important point,it makes me clean and feel comfortable What is your shower habit?

Hi, I normally take a shower in the morning unless I need to wake early for an appointment and need to be able to rush out quickly then I will take a shower before I go to bed. One thing I have to do before bed is I have to braid my hair so I don't pull my hair at night while I am sleeping because I have done that before.

I usually do it before sleep. But in summer, i sometimes hit shower both in the evening and in the morning. It is really unacceptable not taking shower before sleeping. It is so dirty after a day's working, I can't imagine how they can fall into sleep without shower.

I used to take really early showers because I lived with many people and one has to get in line to use the shower. I had to wake up at 4am in order to be the first. cheers!!

I think it depends on the person and your life style. I love to take a warm bath at night, especially if I'd had a really bad day. But, I also cannot start the day without feeling clean, and I don't if I do not shower before putting on clean clothes. It doesn't matter if I had one the night before, I have slept and sweated, and to put on clean clothes with a dirty body is just nasty to me!

i think mostly it has to do with gender, male or female. i always liked mine at night also, but for some reason men prefer morning before the days work or whatever. but sometimes i would insist on hubby taking a shower at night if we were going to be intimate i dont like it if we are not both clean when intimate.

I like to be clean sleeping on my bed, so I prefer to take a shower at night before bed. My hubby would take shower in the morning and at night. I think people who like to take shower in the morning is to have a good start in a day.

I usually take two showers per day. I always take one right before bed. I usually take one at some point during the day as well, depending on what time I have to be at work that day, or on whatever else I have going on during the day. I cannot stand to go without taking a shower.

I can't sleep at night without taking a shower first. Especially at summer. I had this experience where I was to tired from work and I didn't even bother to take a quick shower because my eyes are so tired and all I'm thinking is to lay down in my bed. The next morning, i feel so terrible!! Felt so stinky! It's a lesson learned from me then... *wink*

Morning and evening. Morning to freshen me up and charge me up for the day. And evening, to wash off my day's stresses! In summer, I could even shower 3-4 times if it gets too hot - but too long ones. I'm out in 10 mins most times :d

I live in the Caribbean and down here I shower twice a day. Once in the morning and once more before going to bed at night and, I should point out, I sleep in an air-conditioned bedroom. Most people in Trinidad, my country, consider Europeans as not being too clean because they don't bathe as much as people here do. I guess if you live in a cold climate the need isn't too great to bathe twice a day but I hardly ever do without two baths a day because you feel so much better when you do that.

Well, I take a shower before I go for work in the morning and then take another shower before I go to sleep. It would be difficult for me to do anything without taking a shower considering that our place is really warm. When I go home, I also do take a shower before sleeping. In both cases, I fell very comfortable. It would be really hard for me to sleep without taking a shower. Perhaps the only time that I do not take a shower is when I have a fever.

I always shower every morning and night. can't get to work if i cannot shower in morn and cant get to sleep if i cannot shower in night. the extreme hot and humid conditions of my state is a major reason for my habit. When I go to some cool places I usually skip the night shower

Well it is nice to take a bath in the morning but it depends on you,you can take a bath many times in day when you feel dirty or messy.

I mostly shower in the morning, However if I have an early start one morning then I will shower at night. I like to be fresh and clean at the start of the day which is why I prefer a shower in the morning.

I usually take it at night, as I can't wake up early enough in the morning to do so. However, I heard from a hairdresser that it is actually better to do it in the morning so as to prevent dandruff.

i do shower twice a day, in the morning and night before going to bed. The most Hindus haves their shower in the morning only and people haves the habit to do shower after the work and before to sleep.

We all had our individual preferences but as for me, I take a shower in the morning. I do not take a shower at night because there is a belief by the elderly that if you are all stressed up, your veins might be inflamed if you still take a bath. There is no harm if I believe, nothing to lose.

I like to take my shower at night. I feel all clean and refreshed and ready to crawl into bed. I know some people like to start their day with a shower. I guess its whatever habit you get into. Best wishes!
