Healthy Monday for Cancer Prevention
Starting the week with a renewed commitment to healthy behaviors is an important step to reaching or maintaining personal wellness goals. Whether you’re working towards weight management or stress-relief or disease prevention, a Monday reminder can help you remain focused and on track. A recent survey even showed that people are more likely to start a healthy behavior on Monday than any other day of the week.
The American Institute for Cancer Research has collaborated with The Monday Campaigns to apply Healthy Monday messaging to cancer prevention and survivorship. The Healthy Monday for Cancer Prevention Toolkit includes a series of practices developed for AICR’s Healthy10 Challenge to help people learn about simple ways to reduce their cancer risk through exercise and healthy eating.
Every Monday, program participants will kick off the week with a recommended activity conducive to cancer prevention and healthy living. The activities are accessible to a wide range of ages, backgrounds, and ability levels, and are designed to promote continued progress over the course of the challenge. By recommitting to healthy habits at the start of each week, you’ll always be one-step closer to reaching your wellness goals.
