Default Post coronavirus - How often do you shower?

Curious if anyone is slacking on their hygiene since the coronavirus outbreak. If I wasnt working out daily I doubt Id be showering daily

I'm showering about the same as before. More often if I exercise and get sweaty than if I don't.

Maybe I'm showering a little more than before, because I've added a shower after every shopping excursion. But I don't have a lot of shopping excursions. Mostly I'm staying home.

No "Zero" option?

Haha I guess I was optimistic that everyone would at least rinse off sometime during the week. You’re welcome to select 1 and explain that you’re not showering at all

Before, I'd only wash my hair every other day. But I'd shower the other days, wash the problem areas and wet my hair. Now, I only shower on hair washing days. But the biggest change is that I shower at night now. Sleep in more, roll out of bed with just enough time to put on shorts and a tee, make coffee, and log in.

After I got used to showering at night, it feels weird going to bed unshowered.

Every day occasionally skipping one if I was particularly non-mobile.

When the gym was open I'd typically shower twice a day - because I would go to the gym in the early afternoon and I prefer to feel clean when I start working out.

I'm going to be WFH even after the pandemic, so I'm trying to get a good handle on how to do this properly. Thus far I've stuck to my morning routine, except since I don't have a commute some days I'll hit the snooze button a couple of times.

So I wake up, make coffee, shave, shower, and punch the clock every day. The only exceptions are if I have a 7:00 call or whatever, on those days I'll just grab coffee and start work, and I may not shower if the day is busy. So I shave and shower about 6.7 days/week, on average.
