How Often Do You Look in the Mirror?

I have to admit I have actually gone days without looking in the mirror. It's true!

What about you? Compulsive mirror checker or chronic mirror avoider?

Take our poll.


Maybe it's an age thing (I'm 39) or a basic busy-ness thing, but I barely look, I mean *really* look, in the mirror anymore. I mean, I get the moisturizer on and keep the eyebrows in shape and brush my hair and teeth in the bathroom mirror and then do a brief outfit check in the full-length mirror, but most days, I'm just getting "the job" done, so to speak; I'm not really *looking* at myself.

I remember recently coming across an unexpected mirror and being a little shocked at what I saw. Not in a bad way or anything. I'm not sure if I actually didn't recognize myself from not looking in awhile or maybe I just had one of those occasional "so this is how other people see me..." moments or maybe both. But that's when it occurred to me how very little looking I do anymore.

What about you?
