English term or phrase: I woke up and took a shower.
Yesterday, i woke up and took a shower.

Spanish translation:Me levanté y me di una ducha.
Explanation:
Hola:

I think the first version given above is very good. However, I would like to propose this other. Note that I have used "me levanté" instead of "me desperté" (which will be the literal translation of the English). I think this could be a little better simply because if you are to take a shower, it means that you didn't only wake up but that you also got up.

Just another version.

Hope it helps.

Greetings,

Me

Ayer me desperté y me eché un regaderazo.


Explanation:
...o me metí a la regadera. This is what a Mexican might say, this is informal of course, (shower=regadera); a Chilean would use "ducha" specifically for shower, as well as many others I think.

Ayer me desperté y tomé una ducha.


Explanation:
You could also say - "ayer me desperté y me bané" which means ". . . I bathed myself". It is understood but the first one is more specific to a shower.
