Morning or Night? Ask Yourself These 3 Questions
Should I work out in the morning or at night?
It depends, everyone's different.
Ask yourself these 3 questions to figure it out:
What are your energy levels like at different times of the day? Take note of the times you feel more energetic and motivated.
What's your schedule like? Think about any evening activities or if you have any flexibility throughout the day.
How does exercise affect your sleep? Some people find that exercising too close to bedtime can make it harder to fall asleep. Others find it helps them sleep better.

Chronic stress can prevent you from losing weight.
You've been exercising regularly and eating healthy. But aren't seeing any progress. You feel confused and frustrated- causing even more stress.
When your body is under chronic stress, it releases cortisol.
It's a stress hormone.
When it's released, it cues your body to store extra fat, usually in the belly.
Plus, it triggers your appetite for high-calorie food.
So if you feel like you're doing everything right and still not seeing results, it may be stress.
Try these stress management techniques:
Spending time outside.
Doing things you love.
Addressing your chronic stress might not only help you lose weight but live a healthier life.
