What is Healthy Monday?
Healthy Monday is a national initiative to help end chronic preventable diseases by offering weekly prompts and programs to support people and participating organizations in starting and sustaining healthy behaviors. Healthy Monday is a public health initiative founded in 2005 in association with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Columbia Mailman School of Public Health, and Syracuse University Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs.

Research conducted by Johns Hopkins shows people view Mondays-more than any other day of the week--as the day to kick start healthier choices and behaviors. Respondents chose Monday as the day they would start diets, exercising, quit smoking, and make doctor appointments. Monday represents a special unit of time in our culture, and is viewed as the start of a brand new week. And the best part--there are 52 chances to try to kick off your week right!
