The famous Russian cardiologist Alexander Myasnikov spoke about the danger of Monday and why this day is often endowed with a sacred meaning, Argumenty i Fakty reports.
According to him, we traditionally overload Monday with a large number of expectations. For example, everyone starts to lose weight from him, and Monday also becomes the starting point for planning good habits, when learning languages. And because of the beginning of the working week after the weekend, Monday is a hard day for us.
The expert noted that in order for this day not to be so difficult, one must be able to organize oneself.
“I know for sure that you can always tune in. There is only our attitude to something that is happening, including Monday and the fact that we have to go to work,” the specialist explains.
At the same time, he recommended not to overload Mondays with desires and aspirations, and if you want something, then you need to do it right now. The reason that health is upset on Mondays, Alexander Myasnikov called the fact that a person does not take into account circadian rhythms – neither by day, nor by hour, nor by week.
“When we start to sleep off on Sunday, eat up, all sorts of excesses, then, of course, by Monday we will feel unwell. Here, various systems of the body will suffer, including endocrinological, cardiovascular. Hence, heart attacks, and strokes, and other troubles can be,” summed up Alexander Myasnikov.
He recommended having a life plan in mind, a specific schedule, not depending on weekends, not waiting for any specific dates. It is necessary to load the brain and body and fall in love with Monday, like other days of the week, and then everything will be fine, the cardiologist advised.
