I always find showers perfectly enjoyable once I start them, but starting them is hard mostly because starting anything is hard. I'm not skipping showering because I'm too busy, I don't do it because I'm too tired and it's too much effort.
I shower every day or else I get ocd about my hair grease
No, it takes like a minute if you hurry.
Jump in, wet hair, rub in shampoo, rinse off. Quicker if you do a cold shower.
you don't wash your body? you probably smell like shit
What if you did something else while in the shower? Take exercising as an example. You can work on breathing routines to up you lung capacity for better oxygen intake, use weights and resistance tools to build muscle, stretch to improve mobility, etc etc. You wouldn't have to worry about getting sweaty or not hydrating enough, just turn the tap to room tempurature and take a drink!
I agree showering can be a pain, especially when living with weirdos or having lackluster fixtures/plumbing. A walk in the rain every few months is all a NEET needs.
I miss showers.
I have to wash up at sinks, use bowls of water, or use a fucking hose to wash my hair.
Let's just say my rent is super cheap for a reason.
I read it's better for your skin if you don't shower as often. I normally only shower once or twice a week.
If you don't have a need for it, then don't do it. As long as you don't have to be in a reunion or go to work, then you don't need to look presentable.
so you pay real money to live in a glorified shed?
I love a hot shower, could spend an hour under the warm water. As for it being a waste of time, it probably is, it's not like I do anything with mine, so I don't care
yeah pretty much. when I wake up and feel like shit, showering feels awkward and uncomfortable. I still shower a decent amount.
It is a commercial property rather then a residential one.
I stay in a small unused portion of it.
It is better then any other alternatives at that price and a hell of a lot better then homelessness.
I love taking shower, I just don't like the aftermath because I have long hair.
Isn’t that illegal
I don't really give a shit.
you don’t give a shit that you could be evicted at any moment?
It has the same level of probability of being evicted as any place I stayed since 18.
It also has similar probability of me dropping dead for whatever reason.
It is very unlikely but if it happens I will deal with it. Until it happens it isn't worth stressing out over.
Staying somewhere with the rent so low allows me to save up for a place I can own one day.
The shower is heavily caught in my neuroses. I frequently take hour long showers, even up to 3 hours on occasion, and never less than at least 30 minutes. I sit and think and ruminate in the shower, I've done this since childhood. And once I even do start washing myself its dictated by ritual and takes me way longer than any normal person. My shower habits have actually had a huge impact on my life and relationship with family.
What about the bills though?
>>228539>a huge impact on my life and relationship with family.
i.e. grudge against you for hogging it while they're beating on the door to take a shit
You mean your family don't just knock, announce that they have to take a shit, bust in and take a shit, but then don't flush to "be polite" so you have a smelly surprise to deal with after you are finished?
The joys of only having one bathroom for a family of 5.
Showering is always a chore for me. On average, there will be around ten spiders in all corners of the bathtub and I will have to ritualistically try and catch them and throw them outside every time I want to take a shower. Then, I have to deal with the task of ensuring there are no flies or moths assaulting me from the ceiling after that. Once I'm in the shower, I have to pray that more arthropods don't materialise out of nowhere. Then I have to deal with the agonising sensation of shampoo flowing into both my eyes and nose for the entire period I spend in the bathtub. I leave the bathtub aggravated and lacking in energy just to try myself off. This takes me around 40-50 minutes every time, all for the sole purpose of having wispier hair despite never leaving my room. I despise showers and having to do them on a daily basis would be a melancholy fate.
i like to come up with excuses, like you dont actually need to shower when you just stay inside all day, it doesnt matter if you smell, etc
really i just hate the process of bathing
-loud water noise
-have to stand up in shower
-alternatively have to lay in tub that isn't long enough for me
-only hot baths/showers are viable but being hot itself doesn't feel good
-have to dry off but for like a hour afterward i'm still damp
-other people use that tub/shower and they are fucking gross
-it's a pain in the ass having to wear crocs to shower in your own bathroom
maybe if i had my own exclusive shower that was running 24/7, completely silently, at the perfect temperature, and i could teleport to it at any time, and when i teleported away i'd be 100% dry, and it could instantly transform into a a tub if i wanted to bathe instead, and most importantly it was low gravity so it took no effort to stay there… there's no way that shit will ever happen though so fuck it i'd rather stay dry
United Kingdom. My house is just a decrepit, archaic cottage that is falling apart at the seams. If I had the money to move to the city then I would.
Unless you have work or something its kind of a hassle.
I shower when I bored. Or make coffee.
My mind goes crazy in the shower. Intrusive thoughts flood my mind constantly like a swarm of bats. I have to prepare my mind to get in the shower. It's weird.
for noise, wear swimming type earplugs (eg macks).
you can get chairs for the shower. they are basically for old people, so what?
you can bathe at any temp. soap is the main thing. cold showers help prevent hair loss, if you want to try cold showering (it’s unpleasant, you might cuss, enduring it).
if you get a good blow dryer, you’ dry off faster. you can use it to warm up your toes etc too.
you can clean the tub with rubbing alcohol. it’s pretty cheap.
wearing crocs is one of the easiest things possible, next to farting on sundays.
I wash my body once in 2-3 weeks probably, and wash my hair once in 5-7 days, and take water showers every 1-2 day. I don't smell anyhow (except for armprits maybe if i don't wash them with water for too long) because i've been doing it since my childhood. I think the lesser you wash yourself, the better, but most of you probably don't agree with me. My sweat never stinks too, it isn't oily but watery, and i think that it cleans and hydrates my body. Just drink water and do exercises to sweat more and your body will clean itself without the need for regular showers.
also never wear synthetic clothes because they detain sweat on your skin, thus cause rotting and making it greasy/stinky.
you have it backwards. synthetics whick, which helps prevent rash. but synthetics can melt, so you can’t use them around heat (like cooking), unless they are special synthetics.
>>228904>unless they are special synthetics
You mean like heat retardant
Very special indeed.
Anyway, dude is pretty wrong about a great deal of things and I am glad I don't have to live with his most likely funky ass.
synthetic clothes can absorb only a little amount of liquid, they stick to your body and they don't pass air through themselves.
hell, my body becomes hot and itchy 5 minutes after i put synthetic clothes on. i fucking hate them
it's pretty known to anyone who travels alot in rural areas that people who wash rarely doesn't stink as much in the long run and get greasy much slower than a normal person. as for me, even back in the day when i was a teenager my friend was saying that my sweat doesn't smell at all. and i wash my butt every 2 days with water, you faggot
>>228912>synthetic clothes can absorb only a little amount of liquid, they stick to your body and they don't pass air through themselves.
Maybe the problem is you are overgeneralizing out of ignorance because that is literally wrong about all synthetic fabrics used in sports wear, but could be seen as true of a very cheap synthetic suit or something.
What fabric are you talking about specifically?>>228914
I literally live in a rural area and you are full of shit. >my friend said I don't stink
Oh really now? Did your friend also tell you it totally doesn't count if you keep your socks on?
sport-wear like Nike or Adidas.
what i mean by rural area is not a country-side, but africa or vietnam or other fourth world country.
feet is another story - you need to soak them a few times a week to soften. but my feet never been smelly anyway
you give off as a snob, so i'm pretty sure i couldn't change your opinion, but you should know that i'm being honest
>>228919>feet is another story
I am pretty sure he was making a gay nigger joke since you brought up friends in order to make a anecdotal defense of your argument on a anonymous website for loners, which is kind of a no-no.
Also, there is no such thing as fourth world country dumbass. That is some postmodern bullshit that doesn't even have a agreed upon definition and isn't even used in respected academic circles.
Besides, been around enough Africans and Viennese to know they stink just like everyone else.
You come off as someone who is unironically trying to act like your shit doesn't stink, which is far more snobbish then someone pointing out the emperor is wearing no cloths (calling out things worthy of skepticism, aka bullshit)
>>228920>I am pretty sure he was making a gay nigger joke since you brought up friends in order to make a anecdotal defense of your argument on a anonymous website for loners, which is kind of a no-no.
isn't it's a hypocrisy to say that while having friends yourself? because i have none.>Besides, been around enough Africans and Viennese to know they stink just like everyone else.
their race doesn't matter, it is just that in rural areas they wash themselves rarely(like once a month or don't wash at all) and their bodies adapt to this routine.
everyone's shit stink, but my body is not. whatever, i can't prove it to you.
>>228921>isn't it's a hypocrisy to say that while having friends yourself?
Where did he mention having friends?> it is just that in rural areas they wash themselves rarely
This is literally false.
Who the fuck told you that because it is wrong. You would know that if you ever actually been to a rural area or talked to people from such places.
You think they work in the fields, get covered in muck and dust, then just leave literal shit on them for weeks at a time? You truly don't know what the fuck you are talking about when it comes to rural life.
>You think they work in the fields, get covered in muck and dust, then just leave literal shit on them for weeks at a time? You truly don't know what the fuck you are talking about when it comes to rural life.
yes it is exactly how they life. i know it because i watch alot of travel shows and had read some books which featured those people. like if they get their foot dirty, they just wash it with water and then go to sleep. same with any other body part. because they're ofte doesn't have soap and any kind of tap water there.
You know shit.
I don't know what books or shows you watched but I have lived in rural areas and talked to people from such countries, including those that used to be farm workers.
They washed every single day just like most other people around the way. And yes they have soap because soap is cheap even in developing countries where people live on a subsistence level of extreme poverty.
Fun fact, people from the rural poor often had better hygiene and lived in more hygienic conditions then the urban poor.
You even see similar situations in "developed" countries like the US. See LA compared to rural Appalachia.
But whatever, you are clearly ignorant on a great deal of things.
No, he's right, I saw it in a documentary called Monty Python and the Holy grail
