    Any self-proclaimed night owl will tell you that waking up bites. Apart from that first blissful cup of coffee, our mornings generally consist of crankily silencing the alarm clock, stumbling into the shower, and blindly reaching for whatever breakfast selection requires the least amount of effort. With this level of disdain for the a.m. hours, it can be difficult to face the day with bright-eyed optimism. But being the glass-half-full folks that we are, we’ve found an array of simple pleasures that are guaranteed to help you roll out on the right side of the bed.

    Click through for a myriad of ways to jump-start your mornings, from waterproof shower speakers that'll have you belting out your favorite tunes to Elizabeth Arden's new SUPERSTART Skin Renewal Booster, a skin-care treatment that helps the rest of your regimen work even better. Before you know it, you'll be so ready to rock when morning comes that you may all but forget your snooze button exists.
