Why Monday?

graph of the Monday effect

Research conducted by Johns Hopkins suggests that people view Monday, more than any other day of the week, as a day to make healthier choices.  Respondents chose Monday as the day they would begin eating healthier, start an exercise routine, quit smoking or make an appointment with their healthcare provider.  Monday has special significance in Western culture as the beginning of the week and an opportunity for a fresh start.  The best part about having a Healthy Monday is that you have 52 chances a year to kick off a healthy week!
