Are you taking a bath everyday?

Philippines

We all live in different time zones, we have different climates, we speak in different tongues but somehow I'm sure about one thing, we are all taking a bath. The question is how often do you shower or take a bath. Taking a bath is a daily activity for me because I live in a tropical country and it is located near the equator. When summer comes there are times I take a bath two to three times a day specially when its very hot. I know countries located far north and far south of the equator have a very cool climate and because this people from this countries seldom sweat. How often do you take a bath? daily? occasionally? or when you just need to?

I dont remember when was the last time I took a bath. But I do remember when was the last time I've taken a shower. Well, doing it everyday will really helps me to remember when was the last time, and it's just this morning. Taking a bath eats lots of time, so i can only do it when I have many spare time. I shower every morning before going to school, or to some places. It makes me feel refreshed and the confidence that I look,feel and smells clean in front of others. At night, before going to sleep, eventhough i wanted to take a quick shower, my mother and eldest sister wont let me, because I have weak lungs and diagnosed having minimal pneumonia before. And they think that it won't help if I take shower at night considering my condition. I just "clean-up" before going to sleep. :) Enjoy your day hexeduser! :D

How nice of you to drop by. Thank you for your response:) Ouch you smell bad at night! just kidding!:)

HAHA oh, not really. I told you that I "clean-up" at night. Er? I think, "Sponge Bath" would be the right term. Hahaha! Though sometimes, I just can't take the heat that I forgot that I have weak lungs and I'll treat myself with cold shower. ;)

bath is a part of daily routine. one feels fresh after a bath and is an essential part of my morning routine. during summers i take shower several times, specially when i return home from work. it eases tiredness and freshens you up.

It is a 10-15 minute shower for me, everyday. I cannot end my day without a shower, even in winter. I don't take baths though because I think I am soaking myself in my own dirt. Besides, I am afraid I will fall asleep in the bathtub.

Shower and bathing is two different activities but to most people that is not using English as a mother tongue it's the same. There are bathrooms without bath tubs in most places outside US so they address shower and bathing as the same thing

Not to me even though English is not my native language as well.

To hexeduser22 this is checkmail and do regularly take bath wihout failing, often two times when gets too much dirty, means a lot of sweat and a lot of pollution.Our daily bathing is an essential requirement of our health, which is to be fulfilled.As bath makes our body again fresh by washing away the sweat, dirts, germs and other harmful substance sticked on our body.Bath is an supplemnt to our health from outside and food is a supplement for our body from inside, both cannot be neglected.

Taking a bath is essential but I cannot consider it as equally essential as food. People can survive for years without taking a bath but not without food

I take a bath everyday. If I go on duties in the hospital I need to take a bath again after duty. If its too hot then I'll take a bath a lot of times. It's very refreshing.

That's a good habit taking a bath after your duty in the hospital. Hospitals are not actually germ free so it's better to take care of your body

If I don't get a chance to take a bath I at least wash-up everyday! I take my hygiene very seriously. I don't see how some people (who are able to) just simply neclect to wash-up, and let themselves walk around smelly for days at a time.

Beggars don't usually wash up everyday. Whether they like how they smell or not unless they can't find clean source of water to wash wash their body then I guess they have to live with their smell. There are also people who are just lazy to take a bath or in some cases there are people with phobias with water

Hi there! I really make it a point to take a bath everyday even when it's raining and the water is very cold.lol. Taking a bath is a way of practicing proper hygiene and is very important to achieve good health. Since i live in a tropical country,i usually take a bath two times a day to keep myself cool.

What if you don't live in a tropical country? Imagine living in a country close to the poles of the Earth, where sometimes the temperature is below freezing point. Would you still take a bath everyday?

I only take a bath once or maybe twice a week, but taking showers is a daily activity. I like to smell nice if you know what I mean. Sometimes it's very frustrating to sit next to someone how hasn't the same habit as you, and they kind of smell very bad. I think this is a matter of respect for you and for the people around you.

Well we could never really condemn this people. It's different for everyone, we should just try to avoid getting caught up in this kind of situations or scenarios. What do you prefer when you shower, cold or hot water?

I don't have to look at your profile but I just think that we come from the same country, and yes, bathing is a daily thing with me. Occasionally though, I bathe two times a day when I have to go to a party during the later part of the day. I think it is a regular habit of people here, like breathing and eating, to take a bath everyday. I cannot imagine not doing it on any single day.

I checked your profile and yes we are from the same country and almost the same province I'm from Iloilo but I grew up in Manila. Yes it's regular for us here but what if you weren't born in a country like this. Let's say you were born in Alaska or some cold place would you still consider taking a bath regularly?

Just like you, I am living close to the equator, so at least taking a bath twice a day is a must for me, especially as a man I tend to sweat a lot comparing to women. Taking a bath for me is somewhat like therapy, aftermath, I will feel completely cheer up, comfy and ready to do my routine ( in the morning ), or ready to relax (in the evening). One thing is I like cold water, hot water makes me sweating as if I haven't taken my bath. I use hot water only if I wasn't feeling very well or too late in the evening ( to prevent from rheumatism ).

I always saw it as refreshing but for you it's like a therapy. I never saw it that way but I can definitely agree with you that you are right too

I take a bath everyday, once or twice a day. I take a bath before I go out and before I go to sleep so that I'm refreshed. When the weather is too hot, like when it's summer I can take a bath 2 to 4 times a day because of the heat you always feel sticky and hot.

If you were not accustomed to taking a bath everyday since you were born and if you're not from a hot country would you still take a bath everyday?

whether you are someone Indonesia? if you know me really well greetings from Indonesia, let me try to answer this discussion , for me who also lived on the equator , of course, is not good for your health if you rarely shower because it will make the body smell and the sticky-sticky I shower at least 2 times a day , except when the weather is very cold I shower once a day,thank you glad to discuss with you

Hi suhaku! I hope your still here lotting after all this months. I'm not from Indonesia, I'm from the Philippines and I can say we have almost the same weather patterns and seasons. I must agree living in a tropical country really requires an individual to bathe twice or thrice a day

Dear hexeduser22, Same as you here. I too live in hot climate and without a cool shower we could never manage and never able to withstand the climatic conditions. This year even it is rainy seasin now, we could find no rain and it makes still worse. So, it is better to take shower daily here in my country. I'll take a bath daily twice but when I am in the room air-conditioned, I seldom sweat and I can take only once a day sometime. Cheers... Have a nice day..

That's nice. The weather is really crazy in this times...If this unpredictable weather continues then I guess you'll have a very unpredictable bathing activity

2-3 is equal to -1 times daily then are you saying your not taking a bath everyday?

I shower everyday but only when I feel the need to. Like when I don't do anything all day and don't go anywhere and i'm not dirty, I don't feel the need to shower so I don't. But usually I will just to be clean :)
