Description/Abstract

Research shows that people view Monday as a day for a fresh start and are more likely to start diet and exercise programs, quit smoking, and schedule doctor’s appointments on Monday than any other day. This issue brief discusses the benefits of kick starting your week with a Monday Mile and profile a local community that created several Monday Mile routes where local residents can interact and be active.
