    Feels like I'm washing away my fatigue

    when I take shower. Night showers are good except my hair looks like a birds nest in the morning.

    But not today. I fainted in the shower

    and the day got progressively worse from there.

    there is something refreshing,

    exhillarating and relaxing about having a shower - to be able to stand under the water and let my mind wander, to a quick clean up when in a hurry!! Yup, I always feel better after a shower, don't you??

    I always feel better

    after a warm, aromatic shower with spa or relaxation music playing. The combination of the fragrances, the warmth, the water and the soft music is so tranquil and comforting to me. It helps with my anxiety. Definitely something I look forward to!

    I definitely and always will feel

    so much better after a hot shower head beating against my body. After my shower, I feel so relaxed and ready to start my day.

    As the name of this experience implies,

    I indeed always feel better after a shower, especially on the hottest days of summer. Even if it's a cold shower, it's certainly better than feeling sticky until I do.

    I always feel so much better

    after a shower. I normally take two showers daily; once in the early morning and then again in the later afternoon when I have completed my workout.

    Who doesn't feel better

    after a shower. You just feel so clean, reinvigorated, and refreshed. I definitely appreciate showers even more after you haven't had one in a while. While camping, showers are a premium and sponge baths become the norm. So showers are really so freaking cool.

    It's the only time when I can truly relax.

    Just let go and exist instead of constantly worry about everything. Just enjoy the warm water rushing down my body and close my eyes and think of nothing but the water and the sound it makes is so soothing. No matter how stressed or depressed I feel I always feel better when I'm...

    Seriously, hot water has been the penultimate

    achievement of civilization!! Well, that coupled with the fact that my shower stall has a "Water Waster 2000" head in it. It will deplete a 40 gallon hot water tank in 15 minutes! It's like getting pressure washed up to the point of physical pain...I pay for it when my water...

    I take at least one if not more

    than one shower a day. After completing my shower I feel so much better, clean, and ready to start my day. I love to feel and smell clean. Cleanliness or hygiene is so important to prevent infection and disease.

    I have a love / hate relationship with

    showering. In the morning almost always I would rather sleep in than shower but I know I'll feel like crap by noon if I don't shower. I never shower at night which you would think would be the answer which I have tried but by midday the next day I always feel gross *shrugs...

    Showers are the greatest.

    ..love the massage I get from the tiny streams on my back. It eases my sore muscles into bliss. Love the scents from my body wash and shampoo, because the whole apartment smells very good after the shower.

    I always feel better

    after a shower. I love to take a shower I take one every day, no matter what is going on, or how I am feeling, sometimes, I even take two showers in one day. Taking a shower always relaxes me, and puts me at ease.

    nothing like standing under the hot water,

    feeling it wash down your body. lathering up my long hair, and washing every inch of my body - feels so good to be clean - so refreshing.  sometimes I shower twice a day!  I always empty the water heater - makes dad a little mad. LOL

    I almost always feel great

    after a shower. I feel refreshed, healthy, and confident. I also believe that thinking in the shower is a spiritual way to wash off the stresses of the day. I think it's good because there's no distraction in there and thats why you feel better after.

    It washes away the bacterial storm of deadlines,

    and aggression, and yesterdays news. Not to mention all the days activities that linger with me. The air, the hug from others, washed away with heat, and good smells, and water running down my face, arms, and legs. Nothing feels better than start over...fresh.

    Cleanliness is next to godliness,

    I've heard. It's true! I love to shower, to feel fresh and clean always. I disagree with spraying body sprays instead of showering. I will shower two or three times a day, minimum.

    It gets me away from school, work, and the trials of the day. Almost nothing relaxes me more.

    Showers just wash away the grime of another day

    and all its crappy emotions and burdens... Plus, I don't know how many problems in my life I've solved whilst thinking in the shower.

    I always feel so much better

    after I take a shower. This is because I shower with my lover (husband) on a daily basis. We are not only clean, mentally alert, and sexually charged from our shower but we feel great and we are ready to start our day off and running.

    and I'm setting myself up to be blasted by all kinds of people, but is there actually anyone who takes showers who doesn't feel better after they get out then when they went in? Just speaking for myself, I'd probably quit taking them if I went in feeling great and came out...
