Does it Take You Longer to Get Dressed on Monday?

By February 18, 2013

Follow me on:

In the new release. The Book of Times, author Lesley Alderman claims that on a Monday morning, it takes a woman one hour and 16 minutes to get dresses, while on a Friday, it takes her a mere 19 minutes. Where do those minutes go? On a Monday, the average woman spends 19 minutes getting showered, 23 minutes on her hair, 18 minutes on her makeup and 16 minutes getting dressed. Contrast that to a Friday when she spends 10 minutes showering, 6 minutes on her hair, 2 minutes on her makeup and one getting dressed.

I personally think these results sound a little fishy. I'm willing to grant that the average woman takes a longer shower on Monday, after all, it is hard to wake up after a weekend. And maybe everyone is listening to my advice about styling her hair once a week and then refreshing it quickly on a daily basis. BUT, Friday night is still a traditional happy hour day, when a woman very likely could be heading out for drinks after work. That means, she'll spend more than two minutes on her makeup and definitely more than one minute getting dressed.

Tell me what you think below, then read my tips for how to get out of the door faster any day of the week.
