They now recommend showers at night as a sleep hygiene measure. Apparently, when you take a hot shower, it causes your body to drop its temp later in response to the shower, and having a cooler body makes it easier to fall asleep. So, maybe it is a good thing you prefer yours nightly.

Took another shower this evening and it felt so good! I usually avoid washing my hair, but I got in there and did it tonight and it felt amazing. I should try and wash my hair at least once a week. Topped it off with my luxurious Elizabeth Arden Green Tea body cream, and now just relaxing.

It really feels good to shower every night. - I agree with you @Tart Cherry Jam I tend to fall asleep faster when I do shower at night it's true. I feel really fresh and comfortable in the covers, and I am definitely a lot cooler.

I took a shower yesterday the 17th. My hair is so pretty after a blow out.
It had been a while....I get into the shower when my hair looks awful.
That is the only reason I shower.
I know that sounds gross but I am being honest here.

Took my nightly shower, felt pretty amazing. I am so glad I take my showers at night - a lot of times I don't feel like it, but I force myself to.
