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

According to Women’s Health Magazine, the average woman takes around 54 minutes to get ready in the morning before they leave their house and head off to work… Yup, that long (or short, depending on how you look at it)!

Of course, this time does not apply to everyone. For some people, they need to add more time to help get their children ready for school, walk the dog, workout, make their lunch for the day, and so on… So, of course this time needs to be taken with a grain of salt.

That being said, according to their analysis, here is how the timing is broken down:

  • 5 minutes for eating breakfast
  • 8 minutes for taking a shower
  • 8 minutes getting dressed
  • 15 minutes to apply makeup
  • 18 minutes to style or dry hair

While taking about an hour in the morning to get ready for the day may seem absurd to some, it’s actually pretty realistic once you break it all down… Especially when you’re just waking up first thing in the morning!
