For me it depends on my mood.Showers I definately prefer when I'm in a hurry,and baths are great to relax your muscles in.I love a bath to help me feel less stressed.When I have a time to be somewhere's,I just take a quick shower.Which do you prefer?

I'm not a huge fan of sitting in a bathtub to take a bath. Every once in a great, great while I'll get the urge to sit in a nice warm tub of water and just relax but I just can't seem to get very relaxed in a tub. It's not as relaxing to me as people claim it is. So, I'd rather get in, take my shower and get out so I can get to doing something else.

I prefer a bath, as I find one much more relaxing than a shower. I find water running all over me from a shower quite stressful.

I prefer baths. I like to take the time to relax with a little music playing and ignore the stresses of the days past and not worry about what might happen later. Sometimes showers are necessary, but if I have the chance its always a bath.

Unfortunately, where I live now....I have no bathtub. That's pretty sad since I actually like taking baths. Showers are more time efficient which is nice since I'm always in a rush nowadays but I miss baths.

Bath for me certainly is what I prefer. Showers just do not really do the job. Plus, when I actually get around to getting clean, its when I have a fair amount of time and like to just sit back and relax. I cannot very well do that standing up to a shower. So soaking in a bath would be the best thing for me. Shower would happen only if there is an emergency.

Hi Java09. What's a shower or bath??? Just joking! For me it is showers. However, in the winter, when it is pretty cold, I prefer a hot tub of water. If I have time, which is rare, I attempt to doze off if possible.

I don't have a bath tub, so now I don't really have a choice, but when I was a child I loved to take long baths when it was cold. My friends have an outdoor bathtub with room for several people, a bit like a jacuzzi, but I think it's too warm.
