Is it easier focussing before a shower or after?

Hey, I know it's easy to get focused on, "oh crap, I need to shower pretty soon here" thoughts before a shower, and also "I feel icky right now" thoughts, But, putting those aside, is it easier to remain focused before shower, after showering, or does it not even effect you.

Lately I've been playing around with the idea that taking a nice warm shower with nice, purified city water, and then abruptly being frozen to shivers might actually have an impact on my ability to focus. Specifically, my ability to 'not daydream' seems to be at issue. I find it much easier to daydream, and not think about what I need to be thinking about after the shower. I'm still studying the issue in myself, but today I postponed my shower till 5:00PM (didn't have to go out today and needed to study bad ). After the shower, I'm finding it a tad more difficult to keep my focus, and before the shower, I was working pretty exceptionally (way bettern than yesterday anyway).

Oh, also, I get this feeling like... idk, the yesterday is today until I show. Does that make sense? Lol, prolly not, but I gotta hurry back to studying.

I focus easier while taking a shower and after.
Showers make my body and mind feel fresh.

Re: Is it easier focussing before a shower or after?

Showers good for me, mainly because in the morning I'm a complete zombie until I get in the shower, but also I think its the physical sensation of the water, it's calming on my mind and body.

Re: Is it easier focussing before a shower or after?

In the shower has always been a relaxing place for me.
1. It is a place where your normally not disturbed by anyone.
2. The noise of the shower water hitting the tub is relaxing.
3. The noise of the shower drowns out many other surrounding noises and makes for a more isolated environment.

A bath is not the same as running water from the shower. Though I like to sit down with the shower running and will do so until the water is gone. A calm bath will bore me within minutes.
