    See I love it when you guys let me be all nosey and in your business. It's interesting to note the differences. It seems like there's a bit of a division either you take time to do nothing (quiet time) or you're up and out the door in under an hour.

    Never really thought about it. I can adjust my morning to the time. My alarm goes off at 6. I don't shower daily, usually, but I might. I like to be out the door by 7:30, though traffic doesn't demand I be out the door until 7:45.

    You don’t shower daily?

    Serious question: You actually put that forth?

    A lot of people don't shower daily. That doesn't mean they don't clean the important parts.

    A lot of people have issues with severely dry skin. Plus, if you aren't perspiring a lot, general washing works fine.

    Now, I personally hate not showering daily, but I don't have the dry skin issues that other people I know have.

    Serious question: Why are you so rude?

    I'm not Australian (apparently the country that showers the most). Utah's a pretty dry state.

    Seriously, for the average person unless they're getting gross, daily showering isn't advisable.

    ETA: I'm actually more ashamed of putting forth I don't work out often enough to need to shower everyday. :D

    I mean a lot of folks don't shower daily. I don't care if my husband showers mon-wed but he'd better be showing Thurs-Sun mornings when he gets off work before he crawls in my bed with his nasty butt.

    My dermatologist suggested I shower once a week due to my dry skin issues. He said that people bathe too often. I can’t do once a week, but I can do every third day. I do wash the business parts daily.

    I don't shower daily. Most of the time but not always. Sometimes I get home late and skip it in favor of sleep. Now with a little one at home, it's sometimes just not in the schedule. I wanted to take one last night but she took two hours to fall asleep. By that point I felt like a zombie and just went to bed myself.

    I used to work with a girl who said she took a French shower. Just sprayed perfume on herself most days LOL

    That sounds like some of our grade 7 and 8 boys--just spray enough body spray and you smell great (gag!).

    I shower daily....kids are germ factories. I also take my school clothes off as soon as I get home.

    Interesting thread! :) My morning routine is pretty much the same when going out for a fun day like on a Sat as it is for work. I just have to wake up at an (earlier) specific time & have less time to get ready on a work morning. I'll describe for a fun free day:

    - Wake up...no alarms then for the most part
    - Probably get on computer &/or have TV on
    - Take shower, put on makeup, & get dressed

    I don't really eat breakfast on ANY day on a regular basis. I've never been a breakfast person really, but on an occasional free day, I will. Also, I'm definitely NOT a coffee drinker...never drank coffee, never will, so I don't need it to "function" or "get the day started".

    Since it's a fun day, I'll eat somewhere while I'm out. (If it was a work day, I was never one for eating a full meal at work, so I'll eat lightly & more than likely bring home food on the way home from work for dinner.) No matter which day it is, I take off makeup & change into lounging clothes the second I step back into the house.

    What a lot of people don't realize about my prosthetic leg is that it takes me a bit longer to shower because of it. So I wear my regular leg into the bathroom, where I have a chair to sit down at. Here I take my regular leg off, put on my shower leg. Then I can take a shower. Then when I get out and dry off, I go back to the chair, take off the shower leg. I wash my stump off and dry it off really good. Then I put lotion on it to help with the dry skin. Then I can put my copper sleeve on, gel sleeve on, socks on. Then my pants go on and roll up the leg. Then I can fit my leg on and lastly the black sleeve on top and then the outer sleeve.

    Since your showering routine takes more time you'll just have to get some other tasks done more quickly OR get up earlier. It's basically a time management issue since you can't change the time you're due at work.There's someone at my job that comes in late EVERY day. I mean, not 2 or 3 minutes. More like 15-20 minutes. With a Dunkin Donut coffee cup in her hand. There might be a very acceptable reason for this but I have no idea what it is.

    That does sound time-consuming! If you're having trouble getting out the door in a certain timeframe, I would try timing your routine and giving yourself enough time to do everything without feeling rushed. I did this for myself when I had a long commute and had to make every minute count! Here is my routine now:
    6am -- wake up and work out in the living room (I am still doing the BeachBody workouts, two years later!)
    6:45 -- shower
    7:00 -- get dressed, pack lunch and school bag
    7:15 -- makeup and hair (I have this down to a science!)
    7:30 -- drink coffee, eat breakfast (yogurt w/fruit or granola, or instant yogurt), cuddle with my dog on the couch
    7:45 -- leave for school
    8am -- get to school
    This rarely varies by more than a few minutes since it's just a routine at this point.

    Uh thanks but I'm never late... To anywhere... It's not a matter of time management, nor was it a matter of complaint. Mostly just being nosey about people's routines.

    I get up early enough to have time to scroll through Instagram and Facebook while I eat breakfast. I make eggs with fruit on the side every day. I take about 30 minutes to make & eat breakfast, with a little bonus scrolling time. I like my morning to feel like I've had some 'home time' before I go to work. Then I get ready for the day - about 25 minutes, depending on if I'm blowdrying & straightening my hair. I don't shower every day, so that 25 minutes can vary. I usually leave the house 1 hr 15 minutes after getting up.

    Ok, I thought you were looking for tips on how to get out of the house faster. It is definitely an interesting discussion to see what people do every day.

    No worries! The whole thing that prompted me being nosey was my husband fussing before we went to the Red Sox game Sunday – not that I really pay him any mind to start with...
