Start your day with stress management activities that promote healthy weight loss like yoga, breathwork, meditation, or a brisk walk.

Mornings can be a real pain on our side. As we prep for work, commute, or school, we’re sometimes left frazzled before the day even starts– and that’s a tough spot to be in for those trying to shed some pounds.

Stress is the body’s natural response to challenging situations, triggering the release of hormones like cortisol, often referred to as the “stress hormone.”

Stress can make you:

  • store more fat, especially around the belly
  • binge eat
  • disrupt sleep and impact metabolism and energy levels
  • potentially exercise less
  • experience digestive issues


Morning Stress Management Techniques

Unmanaged stress can render your weight loss efforts ineffective, so keep your stress in check by considering these morning pick-me-ups!

1. Mindfulness Meditation

Mindfulness meditation has been shown to reduce stress levels and promote a sense of calm and relaxation. Do your best to make mindfulness a consistent practice each morning to reap its stress-reducing benefits!

How to Start: Find a quiet place where you can sit and focus. Pick up guided resources like apps or videos online.

2. Deep Breathing Exercises:

Deep breathing exercises, such as diaphragmatic breathing or belly breathing, can help activate the body’s relaxation response and reduce stress levels. Practice deep breathing for a few minutes each day to promote relaxation and reduce stress.

How to Start: Practice diaphragmatic breathing by breathing deeply into your abdomen, allowing your stomach to rise as you inhale and fall as you exhale.

3. Physical Activity

Regular exercise is a powerful stress reliever and can help reduce cortisol levels in the body.

How to Start: Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise most days of the week, such as brisk walking, jogging, swimming, or cycling.

4. Yoga

Gentle practices like yoga combine physical movement with soothing breathwork and mindfulness, making you say bye-bye to stress while welcoming peace with open arms.

How to Start: Start with gentle types of yoga like Yin Yoga or Restorative Yoga!
