    I usually work out daily or every other day. Nothing too extreme (I have a weight set in my garage and don't go to the gym). What I've found is that when I wake up in the morning, I never feel motivated to get on the computer and put in internet marketing work. I just feel lazy and end up browsing social media sites or forums (such as this), but I never really take action. However, after I work out in the afternoon, even if it's just a short run to get the sweat going, I feel so much better. I come in, take a shower, and feel pumped and ready to take action! I think part of the reason for me is that I will feel guilty if I spend too much time on the computer without exercising. Not sure if there are any studies on this, but I wanted to see if anyone else felt this way.

    This is might be the thing you're feeling, I go to the gym from monday to friday, thursday excluded. I go every morning, it wakes me up, I don't need no coffe or anything like that, just a nice workout session, it makes me more productive as well.You just give away all the excessive and unneeded energy. The thing is if you recently started working out, it might be the hormone increase in your body which you're not really used to yet, which makes you "itchy" to work out. The first months I started going to the gym , if I missed a day, it made me feel like shit, just too much energy left out.

    It's the same for me. Working out helps me with stress and motivation and the earlier in the day I do it, the better. The fact is humans really aren't designed to spend all day sitting in front of a computer. A lot of us are here because our ancestors were superior physically as well as mentally, but it's really easy to neglect the physical side of our selves in this day and age, so making exercise a habit is an easy way to find a bit more balance.
