Sleep Vs. Appearance

Sleep Vs. Appearance

rawsonbr rawsonbr 02/27/2012

I sleep pretty deeply, and in the morning I find myself sleeping in more rather than getting up and spending some time getting ready. So do you sleep in or spend the time to get ready?

I love to sleep in so I do and make sure I at least look presentable.

I sleep till I wake up usually about 545 to 6ish then out of bed, shower, dress and already for work. My morning routine takes about 35minutes with a shower, then I've usually got another two hours before I must leave for work.

I prefer to just lounge through the morning, relax and drink my coffee, read some, play some then work.

I'm just a morning person!!!

Well, I rather go to bed early enough to get plenty of sleep, and the proper makeup can never be left out when you use it!!!

I can put my makeup on within 5 minutes and have my hair done, so I am sleeping. I never have sent much time on my appearance. I know some people who spend 3 hours on their hair daily.

3 x 7 = 21 hours a week spent on hair, which is a part time job, no thanks.

I've never cared about my hair or makeup. I don't wear makeup unless it's to weddings or funerals. I do care about my weight though and if I start weighing more than a certain amount I start exercising like a mad woman until I get it back down to where I want it.

However, I don't get to sleep in because I have 2 kids that don't like to sleep in.

I sleep in. My wife is the opposite - she takes at least 1 hour to get ready.

I love getting extra sleep whenever I can, and I don't worry so much about primping and such. Sometimes, though, I do have to take extra time if there's an important occasion going on.

It takes me two hours every morning to shower, do my makeup, and fix my hair. To accomplish this as well as get my son ready and get to work on time, I wake up at 3am. So I think that answers the question. LOL If I wake up late I just go in late as I refuse to go anywhere not looking just right. I won't even go to the drugstore without at least my makeup done.

Depends!

I work at home so most days I choose sleep. If I have to run errands, I still choose sleep. If I have an more important appointment or a full day where I need to be out and about, I'll get up and put the time in to prettify.

Sleep. I always intend to get up early so I can look nice but I always end up wanting that last 30 minutes of sleep instead.

I chose appearance only because I like to get up 2 hours before I have to be at work even though I am 5 minutes away from work. I just feel I need that time to really wake up and have enough prep for the day to be able to function properly. I hate waking up and rushing to get ready for work. I like to have my morning time to drink my coffee and get on EF.

I almost always choose sleep. It doesn't take me very long to do my makeup and have it look like I took the time to do it, and my hair depends on how long it is. I've always been pretty good about being able to be up, dressed, ready, and out the door in 15 minutes or so, and that's with doing my makeup.

I have insomnia and trouble sleeping, so any sleep I can get is always good. I just look like me and I'm ok with that.

I love sleep so I sleep but do find a happy medium so I can at least brush my teeth, put in my contacts, put on deodorant and apply mascara(my staple). If I have time for more awesome but as long as I have thirty minutes between waking and leaving I'm more than set.

I guess in between. I can skimp on the makeup but I HAVE to have my shower every day before I leave the house. I just feel gross without it.

I can get ready in 5 minutes. I wake up about 20 before I have to leave usually, just so I can go slowly and check things on the computer before I leave.

Sleep. I'll have better looks in the long run if I let myself get enough sleep I think.

Who cares what I look like! As a single mother of a two-year-old and a full-time college student, I sometimes want to make love to my bed by the time I get to go to sleep.

If I have to get up at a certain time, I set my alarm a bit earlier, and just hit snooze a few times before I actually get up lol.

Well nothing ruins my days like being too tired from lack of sleep or feeling like I look so awful that I don't even want to come in contact with people. lOL. Both are equal. I desperately need both. There are plenty of days where I'm not in the mood for a dress and heels and bright eyeshadow and all that so there's nothing wrong with throwing on jeans and a t-shirt, but when I've not had time to really look somewhat decent, it affects me pretty big.

Sleep! I don't wear makeup and I don't do anything to my hair, and time has nothing to do with that decision.

Sleep is the most important thing for me. I spend a maximum of 10 minutes getting ready in the morning.

I don't sleep in but sometimes I go to sleep all dressed to have time for my hair and make-up but still sleep a little more (I shower at night and I'm cold all the time so I never sweat, no problem here)

Sleep all the way. While I definitely am willing to wake up in time to do the basics and make sure I am clean and presentable for the workday I don't feel the need to spend hours getting ready for work.

I'd say that it depends on where I am going and what I am waking up for. Work generally a happy medium, but if it's just friends generally sleep. But when I just worked retail at a sports store I always choose sleep but would always at least shower and brush my hair but makeup was rare or anything else.

I need an 'other' option. I don't sleep in per se but I don't use makeup cause I'm allergic. So I just sort of get up on time and get dressed.

I usually choose sleep. I set my alarm to go off an hour before I have to catch the bus. I usually hit snooze for the first twenty minutes, which cuts into my "getting ready" time. I can do my hair and makeup in 10 minutes, then I'll spend 20 minutes making and eating breakfast and the last 10 minutes I'll spend getting my backpack packed and making sure I have everything I need for the day. If I actually get up the first time my alarm goes off, I have 30 minutes to get ready.

Sleep always matters most to me. xD I always joke that I'm part bear, and need to partially hibernate all year long.
Then again, I'm not high maintenance with my appearance. Shower, brush teeth, maybe brush hair, and run out the door. c:
