I love the shower. I always use it.
So what happens in a shower?
Hold! I’m not going into the intimate (gory) details of the shower. Rather, this is about how your mind wanders while in the shower.
I think about work – left over tasks, problems, discussions. Then I make a quick mental to-do list for the day.
I think about relationships – How they suck or How they are so much fun. This generally happens in the night when I replay the day’s events in my mind, sometimes smiling at funny incidents with friends.
Other times, I’m very upset at someone I argued or had a fight with. The incident plays in my mind, I stop, rewind and play it again in slow motion. This helps me to analyze what happened, who started it, my reactions, did I do any mistakes, or how to avoid a similar issue in the future.
Most often I start wondering about having fun. Which games to play, movies to watch, partying, travelling, books to read and more
Sometimes story ideas just come together in that few minutes. This post was conceived in the shower 🙂
One time, during that 15 minutes, I decided to go for a long bike ride. And went so right after a change of clothes. Just like. It was a very expensive shower.
Why do I do that? I have no clue. But somehow that short session makes you concentrate on other important aspects of life or the day.
I read about people being great singers in the shower, but I never heard so (Thank God). I tried that only a few times, maybe it’s a girl thing.
