Question: Is your morning height your real height?

A persons height changes throughout the day. A person is at their tallest in the morning when they first wake and gradually loses some height throughout the day. However, as with monitoring weight, it is best to be consistent by taking the measurement at the same point in the day each time.

Is it true that you are taller in the morning?

As we go through the day, the cartilage in our knees and spine slowly compresses causing us to shrink a little. When we sleep at night the cartilage has a chance to rest and goes back to its normal size. On average we are about 1cm taller in the morning than we are at night.

How do I know my real height?

Measure from the floor to the pencil mark with a measuring tape. Keep the measuring tape flat against the wall. If your measuring tape is too short to measure your full height, measure as high as you can and make a pencil mark on the wall. Note the measurement.
