Work out in the morning
If you’ve (finally) developed the habit of hitting your go-to fitness studio right after work instead of getting half-off cocktails at happy hour, we’re giving you major props. Unfortunately though? Pulmonary and critical care physician, Cedric Rutland, MD, says that a morning workout is the better time-of-day choice for your 30s. “Sure, getting up is no fun, but it’s proven scientifically that working out in the a.m. increases your energy level throughout the day, along with improving your mood and the feeling of accomplishment before you arrive to work,” he shares. He says this extra burst of motivation will also give you more time (and desire) to plan your meals, making you more mindful about portions and nutrition.
