I am the opposite of a morning person. The first ~30 minutes out of bed in the morning are so tough. Maybe it's hitting 40, maybe it's having 2 young kids - actually, of course it is - but I know there are ways to make it even a little more bearable to get going in the morning, at least until that first cup of coffee.
What are your (quick and easy) secrets for surviving the daily transition from horizontal to vertical? Late-night snack (as suggested in "Four Hour Body")? Quick early workout? Cold shower? Sleep cycle tracking? (I've been experimenting with an iPod app for that, can't tell if it's helping yet.)
