Showers because I like the sound of falling water and I'm probably just more used to it. It's also great for strained muscles. I used to take baths when I was a child and also I still remember how uncomfortable it was when I lay there and the water got colder and colder... I love bubble baths though, they're sooo pleasant.^^ I guess that if I had bubble bath I wouldn't mind either.
Showers in the morning, because they are fast, and I prefer to minimize the amount of time that I have to spend making myself presentable. Baths at night, though, because I can let my sore muscles soak (my job is pretty labour-intensive some days) and read a book.
UHM. I only remember for some reason having a bath once, when i was super little, so y'know of course my parent was bathing me n just... no not long after i started learning to shower. Then we moved. The tub in our house, the plug part does not even work, so i only get to shower. I do not know how a nice warm bath with bubble stuff or w.e feels like.
Mmm, baths. Long, hot bubble baths with lavender Epsom salt, a few candles, a honey/olive oil mask, tea or ice water. And maybe some background music for ambiance. It's easy to relax in baths (my dad takes baths too - he's able to go into a full meditation that way). I feel more relaxed and able after a bath.
With a shower, it's like you're rushed to get stuff done. And the water sometimes feels so harsh, I like having control of the softness of the water I'm in. That said, if it's a hair washing day or a hard labor day, then I do take showers.
I take showers to be clean and they take less time. I love baths too but my bath tub isn't long enough to accommodate 5'9 people and it's not as relaxing then. (hot tubs are more my style for relaxing with calming music and the nighttime stars it's perfect) although after 2nd degree sun burns the bathtub full of vinigar and cool water was wonderful compared to the flesh beating shower that felt as is my skin was being scraped off by a cheese grater... Florida + Me = Medium Rare
Showers. Mostly because I can get in and out quicker and get on with my day. Also because I don't like sitting in my own dirtied water. Showering beforehand, then cleaning the tub, then filling it to take a bath would take FOREVER and I don't enjoy them enough to make up for all that time. In a clean tub if I'm really sore I might enjoy a bath. Usually I just turn heat higher and sit under the spray instead of stand if I intend to relax a few minutes
Showers are only for being clean. With the time and the right sized bathtub, baths are preferable because they're quiet and relaxing. Most of all, if feels VERY refreshing after you leave a bath. Go ahead and try it, that post-bath feeling really makes it work the amount of time it takes to fill up that tub.
My sisters always likened a bath to sitting in ones own filth. :/ So I like baths for luxury, when I have time and am not terribly dirty. They are the ultimate in relaxation. Showers are better just for getting a thorough clean, faster. The water pressure on my body is nice for achy muscles too after workdays.
I myself prefer showers. When your job is cleaning horse stalls, and riding, you get filthy pretty quickly. I don't like sitting in the tub of filth. Also, when your toilet is only inches away from your bath, you still don't feel clean while you're bathing. ;~;
Showers are almost like a spiritual experience sometimes, a waterfall at your convenience. I find them very relaxing too, despite having to stand up. Even if I had the luxury of a good bathtub to relax in, I'd probably only take a bath once a month or so.
I actually feel more relaxed in a shower for some reason. Especially if I'm sick or have a headache, sitting under the spray makes me feel so much better, while sitting in a bath actually unsettles my stomach. ^^
I take showers usually. But I also LOOOOOVE a good herb or salt bath too. With Acid Reflux Disease and an intolerance to Dairy and Gluten, and back issues after a long day of drawing, it is nice to sit in a bath. Pain usually vanishes quick too.
Often times I actually draw while I sit there. Risky yes, but for some reason, I relax much more and I do not feel as tense with my lines. I usually do pencils when I do that.
I know showers are more economical and do not use as much water, but some days, a bath is just way better
I'm one of those very few people that enjoys a bath more than a shower.
I can relax in a bath, standing up for too long hurts my back and everything, I don't like water going over me, I feel like I can get clean better in a bath. I have had a shower before, I didn't like it at all. I feel all werid and exposed too when naked under it.
Normally I enjoy showers, they are faster and overall more convenient. I love to take baths but recently any time I do, I manage to get hurt so I think thats the universe kinda telling me that I've outgrown baths and should usually stick to showers lol.
showers because: - in a hurry? its Easy - washes shampoo out thoroughly - turn to a temperature and it doesnt cool down over time - the intense beating of water is very nice when sore or need relaxing - water covers you from head to toe (do that in a bath and its called drowning) lol
Not to say baths are bad though, damn relaxing, it just takes half an hour to set up, and is more for relaxing purposes than cleaning (to me, but yes I know you can clean yourself in a tub)
Showers are faster and you can get your entire body wet IF i do take a bath its normally only like if i broke my arm again or if the shower thingy didnt work normally i just dont like sitting in my own dirt .-.
