Healthy Monday


 

  is part of "The Monday Campaigns" in association with Columbia University, Johns Hopkins University, and Syracuse University.

September 15 - Exercise Can Provide Energy -  Ever feel “too tired to exercise” in the morning or after work? It’s more likely that you’re emotionally tired and unmotivated. Look past this initial reaction and follow through with your fitness plans; your body will appreciate the short-term energy boost and stamina that comes with physical activity! Challenge yourself to fight fatigue and stick to your exercise routine this week. Note how refreshed and energetic you feel after your workout.  

September 8 - Stay on Track When Eating Out - Don’t let your good habits disappear when eating out! There are plenty of healthful options available in restaurants like grilled entrees (instead of fried), simple salads with dressing on the side, and extras like broth-based soups and steamed veggies. Don’t be afraid to order exactly what you need to stay healthy, or take part of your food to go!

Look at your schedule this Monday and see if you’re eating out this week. Take some time to research the restaurant’s menu online, or to look up some healthy options in that culinary tradition.
