Exercise in the morning, before your brain figures out what you are doing

Why do people always say you should exercise in the morning? It's not just a myth, it's actually much better for you and if you're going to do it, you might as well get it out of the way, right?

Well sure, that's right but it's more than just getting it out of the way, it's about setting you up for the day, it's about feeding your own needs, nurturing yourself and making yourself more productive.
