I’m not really sure if this is a tip or not! I’m getting ready to transition from “lazy can’t get out of the house before 10:00 a.m.” to “I can’t believe how much I did before 7:00 a.m.” mode.
I decided to time myself doing my morning routine. I love seeing the products other people use and I love reading about other peoples’ routines. Plus, I thought this would be an interesting exercise.
Is there some rule about not putting your naked mid-40s face on the internet? There should be!
I showed you every single product I used. I really don’t know much about products, but if you have any questions, I will try to answer. I’m using many things that came in my Ipsy bags. I didn’t hurry or do anything differently. It took me 6 minutes. Still scary..
Then, I did wet to styled hair. Disclaimer: I wash my hair at night and style in the morning during the school year. In the summer I rarely do the whole she-bang, but for our purposes I did so.
Final product was accomplished in roughly 9 minutes.
What did I learn? I learned that I really only would need 15 minutes after showering to do the whole routine if I didn’t get distracted.
I once did this with unloading the dishwasher. It was eye-opening. I used to hate unloading so much but after timing it I had a different mindset. It only took 2.5 minutes and from then on I didn’t hate it so much. But now, that’s what teenage boys are for!
Try this! It would be fun to estimate how long you think something takes and then compare to how long it really took.
