When working from home became the norm, long gone were the days of morning showers and rushing to the office for a quick coffee chat before the day started. After trying many at-home remedies throughout the day to make myself feel like a person again I discovered a small joy: midday showering.

A midday shower is an effervescent and beautiful thing. Whenever I began to feel overwhelmed with the monotony of the day, I set my clock to 12 p..m to remind myself that I must indulge in this afternoon delight no matter what. Afternoon showers invigorate and jolt my senses putting a pep in my step to finish the day strong.

I’ve also found that I think more concisely and decisively during these lunchtime showers. A morning problem is resolved quickly as I’m wiggling suds from Byredo‘s shower gel in between my toes; an entire story is written by the time I’m ready to rinse off the neroli bubbles from Glossier‘s Body Hero body wash. The dramatic conclusion is that a midday shower is like a double shot of espresso without the onset of jitters afterward.

To help you set the mood, we’ve rounded up four mood-boosting shower gels that will get you over that 2 p.m. hump.
