  • 5 Easy Tools to Create Health Habits

    CS377v – Creating Health Habits
  • How does technology help create health habits?
    Technology can provide either the motivation or the trigger (reminder) to begin forming a habit.
    The following are my top 5 technologies to create health habits.
    To find the one right for you, ask yourself:
    What do you want to do?
  • If you want to….Sync workout data, music & motivation
    NikePlus

  • If you want to….Use your iPhone to make you happier
    Track Your Happiness
    http://www.trackyourhappiness.org/
  • If you want to….Use your iPhone to reach healthier goals
    Vive

  • If you want to….Have healthy & delicious recipes at your fingertips
    Whole Foods Recipes iPhone App
    http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/whole-foods-market-recipes/id320029256?mt=8
  • If you want to….Track foods, workouts, goals for weight loss
    FitDay
    http://www.fitday.com
  • How do you turn these actions into habits?
    Actions become habits when they become automated parts of your schedule.
    Use these tools to practice these healthy actions until they become automatic parts of your day. Don’t be afraid to mix up goals, motivations, tools, etc. until you find something that sticks.
    Most importantly, allow yourself to stop and re-start these actions…cut yourself some slack and congratulate yourself on your healthier lifestyle!
