Despite the storm, Levo League still hosted Office Hours last week. They’re 30 minute live streamed sessions with career experts and mentors. Tuesday’s session was filmed from a dentist’s office (gotta get creative when there’s no power!) and Thursday’s was filmed in my apartment!
I love Office Hours. I feel like I not only learn a ton, but I also get super inspired and simply pumped up about…. life.
On Thursday, Sallie Krawcheck said something that really stuck with me. Before the chat we were sitting there talking about how it’s so much easier for guys to workout on workdays. They can work out during lunch, shower, and get back to work with no problem… I was saying how I have to plan workouts around my hair. I mean, that’s semi-ridiculous…. but it’s true. We’re totally judged on our appearances in the workplace, so we can’t show up with wet hair! During the video, Sallie says, “It’s the little things that make us tired… even just the hair and makeup.”
She describes a scenario where her male coworkers stated they had just “rolled out of bed” to make an early flight, while all the female coworkers had to wake up to do hair/makeup and get dressed. Not quite fair.
Let’s say you spend 15 minutes doing your hair in the morning. Over the course of a workweek, you spend 75 minutes on your hair. Let’s assume you work 50 weeks of the year… that’s 62 and a half hours a year that you spend doing your hair.
The saddest part?
I spend a lot longer than that on my hair alone… let alone picking out an outfit and doing makeup!
I’ve somewhat-recently shared a “day in the life” and I’ve also somewhat-recently admitted that I’m nosy about wanting to know what’s in people’s bags… This is kind of an in between. I’m going to totally divulge my entire morning routine.
Ready. Set. Go.
What’s your morning routine?
PS Check out this super old Day in the Life from when I was a junior at Georgetown… including some hilarious videos!
