Showering In The Morning Makes You Feel Happier, Way Hotter

Study Says That Showering In The Morning Makes You Feel Happier, Hotter

“Cleanliness Is Next To godliness.” – The Bible

So yeah, maybe you’re not a Christian so that doesn’t resonate with you. But hear me out, because now a study actually says that getting clean in the morning makes you a better person.

Even though the original study was done by Herbal Essences (so take it all with a grain of salt), here’s the TL;DR version of what Elite Daily had to say:

Morning showers make your day better.

Give it up for the early birds. Of one thousand women surveyed, over 90 percent said a morning shower transformed their entire day in a positive light.

When I hop in the shower, I get that much-needed me-time where I think about life’s hard hitting questions that I don’t have time to think about the rest of the day. Like how fax machines work and what type of dog I should get. People that don’t shower are all like, “Shit, I better get in the car and work for the next 8 to 10 hours.” Not for me.

They make you feel prettier, too.

Heads up: Over two-thirds of the women surveyed felt more relaxed after a morning shower, and over half felt more attractive.

When I was loofah’ing my body today with some Chai Latte Soul & Body Wash, not only did I smell good, but I felt even better. Sure, I’m still putting off working out until 2016, but at least I feel clean as a whistle.

Furthermore, a cold shower tightens that skin up and gives you a brief moment of, “Shit, am I really this skinny?” Win-win.

Showers > Coffee.

In short, a cold morning shower will give you that boost of energy and happiness that coffee can.

There’s a reason that when people are really drunk, a shower helps bring them back to the rest of the world. Or it’ll just make them pee on themselves. But life’s all about taking chances, so sometimes a shooter has to shoot.

Showers > Bacon.

Over two-thirds of the women surveyed claimed that they would rather ditch breakfast than their shower.


Your skin will be your BFF.

If you’re an oily-skinned gal, it makes sense to shower in the morning to get rid of all that gross oily build-up in your pores.

“But I don’t need to shower in the morning if I shower at night.” – Gross People Who Think Their Bodies Turn Off When They Sleep.

Sleeping isn’t a time machine to the next day. Your body still produced natural oils that get all over the sheets that you have sex on. Gross.

They actually make you happier.

Ditch your Xanax and go for a cold morning shower instead. According to researchers at the Department of Radiation Oncology at Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine, short cold showers may stimulate the brain’s blue spot — the primary source of noradrenaline — which helps chemically mitigate depression.

Okay, okay, let’s not get too hasty here and ditch the Xanax. But yeah, ever take a Sunday night shower before hitting The Panic Room? Works wonders for the ol’ mind, body, and soul.

Huh, so maybe my 5 Questions For People That Don’t Shower In The Morning wasn’t so crazy after all. Even our study proved that more people shower in the morning than not.

You learn something new every day.
