Inspired by some comments in this Misc thread, I was wondering about showering. I noticed that many people commented about showering everyday. I know many people in real-life who do that as well. I also know many people who do not. I usually shower around 3-4 times per week. And yes, I consider myself a very clean person. Showering daily is neither convenient nor practical for me for a variety of reasons. For example, I do not want to spent half an hour daily drying my hair. Also, making sure there is hot water every day considerably raises my electricity bill (which is already high). So, how often do you shower and what determines this decision? Is it practical ("I get dirty in my work")? Is it psychological ("I am clean but I feel dirty if I don't shower")? Is it a habit ("Everyone in my family used to shower x times per week")? Bonus related fact: My grandmother thinks I shower too often and I will ruin my hair and skin. "In her generation" people showered "every Saturday night" so they would be all ready for church the next morning.
