The relaxing nature of the shower is just what I need in the morning.
I'm not a morning person. So I need to ease into my day. I don't want to jump out of bed, rush to get out the door and hit the road all groggy headed.
The shower clears out the cob webs and takes the edge off of the cruel reality of morning. I allow at least a couple of extra minutes in my morning routine to just appreciate the luxury of a hot shower. A shower and that first cup of coffee and I'm ready for the day.
