I am trying to pray regularly (not 5x a day, but once a day or more for now) and wudu is an obstacle for me. I honestly don't like to do it. I hate being wet in dry circumstances. I love taking my shower or swimming, but I hate coming out and being wet. For my hands, it's the opposite, I can't stand not washing them regularly, but putting water on my face, arms, feet... NOOOOOO!!
I learned though that when I wash my hands, I always just do it with the immediate tap water, which is cold even if I turned on the hot side. And I always feel obligated to use the water from the first drip. I don't like wasting water, but it's worth it to leave the hot one running to do wudu or else it makes me not want to do it at all, meaning I skip the prayer completely. I still hate being wet, but at least if I'm wet and hot, it's tolerable!
I might not like this part of the preparation for prayer, but I like getting dressed for it. I have a couple galabeyas (not good for being worn out because of their style and weird length, but I like them for the house and prayer) and I choose one of those or a long skirt with shirt, or a short sleeved nightgown type galabeya with a sweater. Then I choose the scarf. One that matches a bit and covers well. That's when I feel prepared to do prayer.
