    I need about 45 minutes to get out of bed, make lunch, brush teeth, get dressed etc before I leave in the AM. Much less that that and I feel like I'm rushing. I get enough of that at work as it is

    So how long does everyone else need

    Man, I need to be out the door by 6. Getting up at 5:15 is bad enough. Four is out of the question

    Before I retired I could get out the door in just about 30 min. I was motivated though................. every min delayed would mean 2 min extra commute time. I think about those times now and wonder how I did it for so many years. I guess that's why it's called "the rat race".

    Basically one hour from wake up to work with a very short commute. I make my lunch, walk the dog, and shower.

    When I was younger I was out the door five minutes after I woke up. I used to drink. :confused:

    Up at 6 or 6:30, out by 7:30 or 8:00. I drink coffee, play my acoustic, watch TV.... no rush.

    One of the fringe benefits of owning your own business. I don't like to be rushed in the morning. I have my morning routine down.

    Oh for the ol' days. Used to be 5 minute man. I'm not a morning person. If I have the coffee maker on auto, and a shower in the evening, I'm good with 20min.

    Hour and a half or so.

    When I had to be to work at 7 and had a 45 minute commute, I'd leave the house by 6:10, which means my alarm would have to be set for 4:30 or so. Then, I'd work until 5:30 or 6:00pm and get home between 6:45 and 7:00, which put me out of the house for more than 12 hours a day...to me, that got old very quickly.

    I'm very happy now, having a solid 9 to 5. Alarm goes off at 6:30, and I take my sweet time in the shower, getting dressed, making a nice breakfast, having a cup of joe before I hit the road (or having a few minutes to stop and buy a cup of joe), packing a lunch, and lazing around for a little on the ol' computer, listening to music and/or applying for more jobs. If I really pressed myself, I could squeak in a workout or something, maybe get a small run in or a bike ride, but I'm a huge pansy and lack the willpower to do so.

    I like to get up about 10 or 11 and have some coffee until noon. In the afternoon I take care of house/yard business. When I'm fixing to head to work it takes me about an hour at my leisure to get ready to go, 30 minutes if I'm rushing.

    I'm generally right around an hour from when I roll out of bed to turning on the computer at my desk at work.

    M-W I am out running around, and never to the same place. On those days I am up and squeezing into my respectable human costume an hour before blast off. Part of that though is getting kids ready for schoolbus time. On T and F, I puddle around in the home office, take long sunny breaks on the deck, wander around the yard, sometimes sneak out to the woods with the dog. Sometimes though things can be far too busy and the office stuff feels like it is never done and is every evening for hours and hours and overflows the weekend and my family is unfortunately the sacrificial lamb, but that's the reality of life, and why its so important to have it feel relaxed when it can be.

    All you commuters who have to sit in traffic day after day and never shoot anybody, amazing; well done.
