    I am speaking about things like showering, doing your hair, make-up, getting dressed, things of that nature. I think for most men and women, they tend to say an hour.

    For me, I take fast showers. Maybe 5 to 10 minutes tops. Washing my hair adds a few extra minutes. Drying and styling is what takes me forever. I spend 45 min to an hour just for my hair. Luckily I don't wear make-up anymore. I stopped wearing it years ago, just couldn't be bothered. When I was in my late teens and early 20's, it took me almost 2 hours to get ready!

    For me it is something between 20-30 minutes every day as I finish shower in 5-7 minutes and doing hair 1-2 minutes. Rest will be on clothing and have some quick breakfast to starts a day. That's my normal routine for personal care.

    Not enough! It depends on how many spoons I have on the day.

    Mostly it's a messy bun and a wash kinda day, sometimes it's a shower and a good scrub kinda day, and other times it's an hour in the bath and a much-needed soak.

    Rarely have time for makeup, that's usually reserved for special occasions (dates, birthdays, weddings, parties). I've forgotten what a hairdryer is and usually towel and drip dry then brush it for simplicity.

    I know I can be ready and out of the house for work in roughly 30 minutes. If I'm doing a fully loaded self-care routine: Bath, shampoo hair twice, long leave conditioner, bath bomb, a good scrub, maybe a book or Netflix, then I can easily be in the bath for around two hours, just draining off cold water and topping it up with hot whenever I get a bit chilly.

    I always take bath and do cleaned shaved before going office. I cut nails and never buy useless stuff to stay cool. You You don't need to spend a lot of money to look nice

    I have long hair and i always take care of it. I spend most of my time with my hair by cleaning it with shampoo and soap.

    I drink water on a daily basis and spend $20 daily on a drinking water. Sleep well and always make sure I get 10 hours of sleep a night.

    I try to shower frequently. I try to exchange my clothes frequently too. Especially with covid I want to feel clean and know I've done my part to try and get rid of this virus.

    Make-up, 0% - maybe because I am a guy, but I don't bother with anything. Even my hair is a mess, I hardly take real care of it.

    Trimming my beard once a month to not let it go too crazy, but I don't really spend the appropriate time on taking care of my face.

    How long I shower depends on how I feel, I can be done in 15 minutes, I hardly ever shower for more than 30 minutes.

    Breakfast I try to do better and better. I shouldn't have unhealthy things in the morning. And now that I've started making this change in the last few years I notice when I wake up and snack, that I start to feel quite terrible. So I guesssss it's working?

    Two hours, yeah, that's not a shower or a bath, that's an escape from life - but 45 minutes should be fine. Especially if you have long hair or maybe shave legs, etc. I can skip that stuff and am out after 15 minutes.

    I do not do the conditioner stuff, maybe .. I should ??

    I love myself a cup of tea and some netflix once I am done with a long shower. And I try to start laundry after a shower, so when I finish a long tv episode of a movie then my laundry is done and I can be a bit more productive again.

    Clean shaved! I have done that once this year, and that was after quite a few years. I used to always clean shave I dont know why I've stopped.

    Any tips from experience?

    Awesome tip, sleep! Resting is great for the brain and body, we need it more than we think.

    I have recently put new filters in my britta to filter water, and now I have clean fresh filtered water in the fridge again. Meaning I will have better tea and coffee, and I drink more water and less soda.

    Thank you for reminding me the world has fruit.. it's been slipping this year with all the stress. I have to really get back into buying fruit weekly again. I have maybe an apple once in a while. a peer in the summer period. Some strawberries in the spring time, and every month a banana or three. But clearly that's not enough. 2021: less snacks, more fruit snacks. Natural sugars!
