Abstract

Nowadays, lifestyle diseases have become a global social problem. As a treatment, it is necessary to review people’s life patterns and lead them to a better lifestyle, which is called “Behavior Change.” With the progress of information technology, many pieces of research and developments have been conducted to assist people with their daily life, trying to induce behavior change. The common approach used in the existing systems is altering users’ target behaviors to new behaviors, such as drinking more water and walking further. However, this approach considers less about the timing of proposing and the relevance between users’ target behaviors and new behaviors, which limits the effectiveness of the existing systems in inducing behavior change. To improve users’ experience and effectiveness of the system, in this paper, we propose a new design of behavior change support system which promotes behavior changes by embedding additional behaviors into users’ daily routines, trying to improve users’ awareness of their health condition.
