Resist the “Magic Monday” Syndrome

Posted by JCC Pittsburgh on June 18, 2015

How tempting it is to say, “I’ll start over on Monday.” It’s the first day of the week and it seems ideal, right? Wrong! Any day is a good day to start (or recommit to) eating well and exercising. Don’t let one junk-food-laden party or skipped workout derail you for days. Think of it this way. If your car suddenly started skidding, you wouldn’t wait until Monday to do something, you’d take corrective action right away. Apply that principle here. As soon as you perceive a skid, grasp your mental steering wheel firmly with both hands and turn decisively in the direction you want to go!

Every morning you wake up is another chance to get it right. Just get moving!
