When we self-monitor, we become more mindful of our habits. This in turn alters our awareness and our behaviour changes as a result. This is known as social cognitive behaviour change.
Tracking our activity, weight, lung function, blood pressure, cardiovascular health, food intake and alcohol consumption, allows us to learn for ourselves how our body responds and about our habits.
Activ8rlives provide the tools for you to keep yourself and your family well:
Self-monitoring is an easy way to change our behaviour and it works. But why do we stop?
Engagement is much easier if the tools we use are simple and if we are working as a family or in a group. Activ8rlives is designed around the family and groups. Studies show that best results are achieved when the whole family self-monitors or when we work in self-help groups.
The games we include and the rewards we win help us to stay engaged.
The longer we stay engaged, the more successful we are.
