Sometimes, just taking a shower or rinse can do wonders to your motivation and zest for life. Not taking a shower can make you feel dirty and bring down your mental state.


You Can Get Sick


Our bodies are covered in about 1,000 different types of bacteria and about 80 kinds of fungi. Before you run for the shower this instant, keep in mind that many of those are good for you, helping you break down food and other necessary functions.
