Men, how long does it take for you to get ready in the morning, and what is included in that time?

My boyfriend takes one and a half hours every day, and I am curious if it is common or not.

  1. Gonna sound like an old man here, but my routine is drag myself out of bed, and watch the local news to get the weather, while also just getting from sleep mode to day mode.

    On good days I will do push-ups and sit-ups then shower and I’m generally ready for the day then (as ready as I will be).

    I also like to shower before bed, so on the following mornings I will just wet my hair enough to style it minimally.

    My mantra for mornings overall is “just put one foot in front of the other.” I should also not that the workout thing I mentioned does need to be crazy to be effective. 10 of each and then done is a fine way to start the day.

  2. Typical morning where I shower, 20 to 30 minutes. If I showered before bed then 10 to 15 minutes.

    I immediately open my closet and pull out whatever clothes I’m going to wear. Toss the boxers I slept in in the laundry, then walk my naked ass to the washroom. I take the most amazing piss and follow up with about a 5 to 10 minute shower. Dry off, put on deodorant, shave neck and trim beard (every 2nd day), get dressed, brush teeth, style my hair, use some beard oil and I’m all presentable. Then I throw a pre-made frozen meal from the freezer along with a protein bar into a lunch bag and I’m off to work!

    Edit: I forgot to mention take vitamin D.

  3. I believe in taking care of myself, and a balanced diet and a rigorous exercise routine. In the morning, if my face is a little puffy, I’ll put on an ice pack while doing my stomach crunches. I can do a thousand now. After I remove the ice pack, I use a deep pore cleanser lotion. In the shower, I use a water activated gel cleanser. Then a honey almond body scrub. And on the face, an exfoliating gel scrub. Then apply an herb mint facial mask, which I leave on for 10 minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine. I always use an aftershave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older. Then moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion. There is an idea of a /u/klousgt, some kind of abstraction, but there is no real me. Only an entity, something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our life styles are probably comparable, I simply am not there.

  4. 6 min. alarm goes off, auto start truck hit 10 min snooze get up after second alarm jeans and hoodie on brush teeth and hair grab lunch out of the fridge head to work I guess 16 if you wanna get technical tho lol but that snooze doesn’t count

  5. Depends on the situation, like oversleeping or day off. But on a regular workday its: 1 lay in bed with phone, 2. Get dresses, 3. Breakfast 4. Bathroomtime. About 40 minutes. But if Im running late its about 25

  6. On a work day, maybe 20 minutes. I generally like to be awake about an hour before I leave for work, but I recently started a job that starts between 5am-6am and is an hour and a half away. I am not a morning person and have a very difficult time waking up early, so 20 minutes is the best I can do.

  7. A bit over an hour if I’m not in a rush. I can do it in a half hour: shower, eat, brush teeth, style hair, get dressed, etc. Usually I have to take care of the dogs, so that’s why it takes a bit over an hour

  8. Now with Coronavirus and work from home, like 45 seconds. Get out of bed, walk to my desk, open work computer.

    That 45 seconds might be stretched out over 30 minutes of eating breakfast, reading brisbane, and other random things though.

  9. 53 minutes.

    On a typical day, I work 3pm-11pm. It takes me 3-5 minutes to get to work depending on traffic.

    * 2:00pm – alarm goes off, play on phone to wake up
    * 2:10pm – finally get out of bed, brush teeth
    * 2:15pm – sit on toilet to piss/shit, contemplate life, more phone browsing to help wake up more
    * 2:25pm – get in the shower, more life contemplating
    * 2:40pm – get out of the shower, put on deodorant, clean face with acne treatment
    * 2:45pm – get dressed, take meds
    * 2:53pm – kiss wife goodbye, grab wallet/phone/keys/jacket/mask

    I have it down to a literal science at this point. I only shave (well, trim) on my days off. I don’t eat breakfast or anything. I’m never hungry when I wake up, and if I do force myself to eat something that early I usually end up just feeling more tired or nauseous.

    I’d say an hour and a half is on the fence of taking a bit longer than normal, but if he’s shaving/eating/exercising or whatever as part of his morning routine, I see how he could easily reach that amount of time.

  10. Everything between 10-45minutes… depends on what I need to get ready for… school – 10-15mins, get dressed, brush teeth, pack bag and leave… for something very important up to almoust an hour, where I have breakfast, go into shower etc

  11. I am really groggy in the morning. So I often shower before bed, then just get up, brush teeth, pee, have some coffee and some yogurt and start work. So about 15-20 minutes. I have tried many many many times in my life to get up early and be a morning person with no success ever with any strategy that has ever been suggested. It’s just not in the cards.
