Body Fixations That May Signal Mental Illness

Obsession with showering

Obsession with showering. A daily shower or two, if the weather is hot and you’ve engaged in activities that make you sweat is a great way to freshen up. There are, however, who shower many times per day, creating rituals about their shower routine. Some people insist on washing certain body parts first, while others, on the other hand, shower only under certain conditions, often staying in the shower for hours when they do shower. They often equate their ritual with good luck on an upcoming challenge. Such behavior makes it difficult for these people to hold down regular jobs.
