No. I have my best creative energy in the morning, so I’d rather use that time for writing or other work. Exercise is super important, but working out in the morning feels like a waste of those valuable early hours. Instead, I exercise in the late afternoon, when my brain is fried anyway and I’m ready for a break from sitting inside and looking at a screen.
Weekends are an exception. I practice yoga at a nearby studio on Saturday or Sunday mornings every weekend.
That said, I really love to walk, and I’ll often walk to my office or somewhere else in the morning. It’s a form of exercise, of course, but I don’t really think of walking as “working out.”
