Best Answer

We are taller in the morning than in the evening because during normal activities during the day the cartilage in our knees and other areas slowly compress, but when you go to sleep and rest the cartilage goes back to normal. On average we are about 1cm taller the morning than in the evening.

The other component to this phenomenon is that the joint capsules loose some of their synovial fluid and the connective tissues around the joints tend to become compressed throughout the day from activity and trying to counter the affects of gravity.

Also, the discs of the spine do the same thing. During the night, they resorb more fluid making them thicker and the person taller. While walking or being upright during the day, they slowly lose some of this fluid and become thinner.

Why is it harder to concentrate in the evening than in the morning?

If you are finding it harder to concentrate in the evening than in the morning, then presumably you are tired after your exertions of the day, and you need to rest. Note that not everybody has greater difficulty concentrating in the evening than they do in the morning. There are morning people and there are night people. It depends upon how your life is organized, how much coffee you drink, and so forth.
