Getting up early to be late

Now that winter is upon us, that means dark cold mornings. The only way I can ensure that I will be alert at work is to take a nice shower. It helps me clear my mind and be prepared for whatever life has to throw at me. However, the colder the morning, the hotter the shower, which is truly just making a cozy nest for me to fall back asleep. Yes, sleeping while showering (and standing) is totally possible.
