Ladies, did you spend a bit more time this morning getting ready for work? You’re not alone.
According to a new study, women spend more time applying makeup, doing their hair, and getting dressed on Monday mornings compared to the other weekdays. In fact, each passing day sees less effort made, with four in 10 women claiming that they basically give up on making on effort to look good at the office by Wednesday!
Apparently by the middle of the week our workloads are so heavy that we no longer have the time or energy to primp and pamper. For instance, the average woman spends 39 minutes getting ready on Mondays, then just 32 by Tuesday, 29 on Wednesday and Thursday, and back up to 33 on Friday as the weekend gets underway.
Of course, there are exceptions to be made. More than half of women said they would take more care with their appearance if they had a meeting with a client or boss, and nearly a quarter said a potential promotion would inspire them to look their best.
That tells me that we all know that looking well-groomed and nicely dressed is crucial to making a good impression and getting ahead. So why are we giving up mid-week? I think it’s important to take the time every single day to look your best, even if it means planning all of your outfits for the week on Sunday night. Don’t let those standards slip!
