How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?

Consider all the things you need to do before you can leave for the day, if you were to leave, (even if you don't usually leave for the day). For example, using the facilities, shower, shave, dress, hair, make-up, etc. Whatever you routinely do when you care about how you look. I'm not talking about those times you're sick & can't be bothered to get out of bed, consider that you want to look presentable as that applies to you. I'm also not talking about a dressy event, just a regular day in your life.

I could get ready in 30 mins, but I usually take an hour. I like to take my time when getting ready.

To fully get ready I usually need anywhere from an hour to an hour and a half, depending on how fast I'm going.

It absolutely depends. Plus, I don't get up until the morning is passed! Lol. That's very important to me -- to be asleep during morning hours. Morning hater over here.

It really depends on what I have to do, if I'm working, kids and what I have planned that day. I usually shower at night, but there are some nights when I don't because I either didn't need one or didn't get time. So having to shower once I get up definitely makes it take longer to get ready. Not by much though as I can shower pretty quickly.

I can get ready quickly, but that don't mean I always do! Lol. If I'm just doing housework for the majority of the day, I'll take more time to get ready since I tend to space it all out. For instance, I'll do my hair, then go do some cleaning, then my makeup, then the laundry, etc. Lol.

When I have work to do or we have plans to do something, I'll hurry up and get it all done in one setting. Lol. I can get ready in about 30 minutes time if I need to, but there are times when I just take longer, especially if I'm doing something special to myself or if my lovie is hanging around chatting with me while I get ready. I take a lot longer when he does that because we get distracted and there's just too much playing going on. But I still really enjoy that time.

There aren't many days that I don't leave the house all day, but if I do have one of those days, I still get dressed and ready. I hate staying in pajamas all day long. I love comfort, but I just feel icky if I've not gotten dressed.

Then there are days when I have a migraine or am sick somehow and don't get as ready as I normally would, or like today, I woke up with a migraine! I hate when that happens. It's like, at least give me time to get ready before you go hurting! Lol. In this case, it was hurting so badly all I did was put jeans on (left my EF T-shirt on for the first part of my day! Lol) and then slowly got around to doing some work when my lovie came in & gave me a BC Powder and Dr. Pepper and the whole lovely migraine care package. I tell you, days like this and you'd think a BC Powder was a chunk of gold. He said he'd get rid of my headache in 2 minutes & well, it took about 20, but he managed. Lol. Then I was able to do plenty of everything I needed the rest of the day, and well, here we are! But I so hate those days when I don't even get out of bed before the migraine happens.

About 30 to shower, 10 to eat, 10 to shave/brush teeth/get everything ready/get dressed, and 10 to actually drag myself out of bed.

I can be ready in 20 minutes or less. I do the more time intensive stuff like shaving in the evenings.

About an hour or so. But that is if I'm not distracted by other things. Which almost all the time happens.

30-45 minutes, depending on what needs to be done. I'd rather wake up earlier than be rushed.

About an hour. I bathe or shower at night, so I get that out of the way. I like to take my time picking out my clothes, doing my hair and make up.

An hour and a half, but that's getting the whole family out the door (which is a normal day for me). If it's just me, I can be up and out the door in 30 minutes.

I prefer to take about 45 minutes to an hour getting ready, from the time I get out of bed to the time I get into my car. However, I know from a few times when I accidentally overslept that I can go from being in bed to standing at work (including showering, brushing my teeth, and transportation time) in 30 minutes.

15-20 minutes. After I wake up, I brush my teeth, wash my face, straighten my hair, put on my makeup, and get dressed.

Me, personally, 15-20 minutes. Me, also trying to get the children out the door and leave the house in some semblance of not disgustingness, over an hour.

From half an hour to an hour. I spend at least 10 minutes every day trying to locate my keys.

I have gotten ready in 5 minutes, but I wake up two hours early (5 am). I don't like to rush...

Less than 15, maybe 10 if I don't count breakfast. Counting breakfast, between 30-45 (assuming I'm cooking and not in a rush).
