One of the things that attracted me to more traditional Judaism is its belief that we have the potential to be holy all of the time contrary to the naive view that being a good Jew in a religious sense is directly proportional to how many times one has been at a synagogue recently.
To be a "24/7 Jew" means that most of one's Jewishness is expressed outside of the synagogue. Being a Jew is a full-time occupation.
And so we say a prayer when we wake up, expressing thanks for that event that almost all of us take for granted: successfully waking up. And we make a blessing upon leaving the bathroom, expressing thanks that are internal parts are more or less in working order. And we make a blessing before and after we eat breakfast.
