So, I shower poorly. I'm not exaggerating: I spend probably 45 minutes - 1 hour in the shower every morning. I also turn the lights off when I shower...And sometimes I sit down. In the shower.
If I need to get to work at 8:00 and my commute is 15 minutes, I'll wake up at 6:00 just so I have time for this process. If you were to share a house with me, you'd probably think that someone accidentally left the shower on overnight because none of the lights are on and it's been running for like thirty minutes - Nah, just me. Sitting, thinking, drinking coffee!
First, I can't help it - Literally the act of stepping into a shower relaxes me so much that I completely forget any hurry I was in and will end up zoning out for probably 15 minutes.
Second, this is terrible for my skin!
Third, it's turned into a daily meditative time for me, which is really the one upside to this whole practice! I feel like I'm constantly being told to practice mindfulness, but my weird ablutions pretty much guarantee that I've got at least 30 good minutes of unguided, uninterrupted thought before I get started on any given day.
I should probably just move to a Scandinavian country and invest in a sauna. At least then it'd be socially acceptable!
(P.S. I obviously don't pay utilities, and I'm pretty sure my last landlord hated me for my water bill)
