Hey QS Forum,
I thought I’d write a quick update about my progress. I’ve continued working on this project and it evolved into something a little different than initially conceptualized due to all the interviewee feedback we received.
We have an iOS app in public beta now and I’d be very appreciative of any feedback. It’s perhaps somewhat rudimentary for hardcore quantified self folks. The current implementation is a daily questionnaire that is compiled from a configurable list of interests. For example, we have a mindfulness question bank that asks questions like “How many recent moments of serenity can you remember?”. We then provide a weekly insight, for example: how sleep hours are impacting those moments of serenity.
Right now we’re working on developing those insights to be more insightful than just a simple linear regression and make them more readily understandable. We’re also bringing on a new team member to help write wellness articles that integrate your personal data into the story. For example, many articles mention caffeine’s general impact on sleep, but we want you to see a graph of your caffeine intake vs sleep quality inline.
I’m interested in hearing anyone’s comments on this methodology and our app. If you’re interested, we’d be thrilled if signup for our beta at https://lifemetrics.io
Thanks. I hope everyone is staying healthy.
