Stressed? Don’t Workout…

Feeling stressed?…

Sometimes a hard workout is actually COUNTERPRODUCTIVE if you’re looking to lose your menopause belly.

The body can perceive hard exercise as stress so this may contribute to elevated cortisol levels.

Cortisol is the belly fat storing ‘fight or flight’ hormone that the body releases during stressful times.

You may benefit more from a calming para-sympathetic activity like walking, stretching, meditation etc.

Be kind to yourself, especially during stressful times.

Sleep is important too!
