According to FastCompany.com, “Morgan Johnson, research director for the Monday Campaigns (a non-profit health initiative), says Monday can actually be the healthiest day of the week. Johnson and colleagues found that there is a surge in Google query volume of health information-seeking behaviors on Mondays.
