There’s a growing body of evidence that suggests the optimal time to take a shower is in the early morning, when no one else is taking showers. In fact, your chances of being seen naked while you’re taking a shower are greater than if you were walking down the street or sitting at home on your sofa reading the newspaper. That’s because people usually keep their eyes fixed on things other than themselves: they look around them and watch television shows. The same tendency helps explain why it feels so awkward when someone accidentally catches you with your pants off in public: You’re not looking at yourself but rather at objects or activities that draw your attention away from what’s going on below waist level! So grab some more hot water and start scrubbing up!
