How do you all keep track of hygene?

I used to be really good about hygiene when showering at the gym. But they closed the showers at the gym cuz of COVID & I’m out of the habit now.

But If I go over 70 hours without a shower its too much. That would be a mistake to go longer than that.

I wondered if I started making notes in my Google Calendar about when I showered/brushed if that would help.

60 hours, ha, are you keeping track of the hours.

it just depends upon the day

cuz I deal with vertigo, sometimes just plain dizziness,
but other times, total spinning.

anyway, so I don’t always get in the shower for fear of falling down.
I really should seriously get one of those mats.

lately just been sponge bathing.

Bath mats are cool. Alternately. I put Appliques in my tub to give traction…

ohhh, never heard of that, Jay.
maybe I’d know it if I saw it.

It helps to have a routine. On my days off of work I don’t do much hygiene stuff but when I’m leaving for work my routine is shower and brush my teeth

I smell myself and when it feels odd I shower or take a bath. In summer it’s usually every other day.

I shower every day.
It’s best to be clean as possible.

I think it depends a lot what you do during the day how much you need to take a shower. If you are sweating and getting stinking you will need to take a lot more showers than if you are sitting comfortably in the AC and not getting sweaty.

I force myself to shower every day because it helps me get my day started

just shower every other day and your problem is solved. It would be easier than trying to keep track. You probably need a shower every other day now that it’s summer anyway just to keep nice and fresh. In the winter you could probably stretch it out to every third day.
