In a few months, you’ll be feeling better and also be back to your normal weight if you put these into regular practice and start putting yourself first.
1. Get Moving
The first thing you’ve got to do to beat weight gain from stress is to get yourself moving dear! Exercise is a double weapon against stress and weight gain. It lowers your cortisol levels, which in turn reduces stress and helps your body store less stress-induced fat. The most effective time to do it is in the morning because it will make you feel more in control all day, and you won’t be stressed out all day knowing you still have to exercise. For me, just the idea of something else on my schedule, even a workout, is stressful. Get it done first thing as soon as your feet hit the floor each morning. You’ll feel better all day and in no time, be losing weight.
