Last night was my first refreshing night since days. Being sick with a serious cold and breathing problems I had a hard time sleeping well. But this morning I all of sudden felt energized again, and better, not so tired and kind a ready to start my day.
I like to share my sleeping data during these days, because even you know you are not sleeping well or feel like you slept very well, the data is always interesting to look at. Last night was very peculiar with almost no wake ups, and a high score of sleep effeciency 91%, which is very special, it doens’t happen that much, usually my score is in the 80″s.
Shots of everyday sleeptracking during Septemeber 2010 and September 2011. In 2011 invested in new matress which resulted in better sleep – less wake ups in general.

Show and Tell – My journey of three years of sleeptracking with myZeo and Body Media
When I started an experiment in 2010 with myZeo sleep tracking device it became a long period of research in sleep monitoring in a home setting for over two years. The self-monitoring triggered behavior change, I optimized my time, my productivity and planned things differently to change my lifestyle for the better.
Break-out session – Bringing ‘Designing for Personal Health’ to the next level.
I do long term research with monitor devices myZeo and Body Media within social experiments of small groups of people. My research quenstion:Does self-monitoring with devices like myZeo, Body Media and others that are in the market create enough awareness and persuasion to change behavior and to maintain new habits. I would like to use this session to learn and share experiences in order to bring ‘Designing for Personal Health’ to a higher level!

Yesterday I was at a H(app)athon meet up to brainstorm on new ideas to measure happiness. Based on a range of measurements already done like hapiness at the workplace, life satisfaction, health and so forth, we came up with an e-mirror app. Based on e-harmony dating websites. Working with mentors who are 5-10 % feel more happy then you are, and creating kind of a baseline, either matched to your mentor, or to a group of people with whom you have a match, and work your way to a more happy life. Like the idea?
