Force of Habit

How might we empower a diverse set of users to create lasting, positive change?

Force of Habit is a prototype app based on my Ideation & Prototype research, including readings on habit formation and design for change, as well as user interviews. Its goals are:

  • To share the science of habit-forming strategies and inspiration for specific habits
  • To encourage mindfulness as a means for motivation
  • To provide simple but effective tools to track and maintain habits
  • To link these features for a seamless and holistic system

With that in mind, the prototype is divided into three parts:

Learn

Contains learning modules, featured content for specific habits, and prompts the user to submit journal reflections. Provides users the framework of habit formation, and sets the stage for a mindful experience.

Plan

Stores journal reflections, as well as (check)lists that are linked to habits. Serves as reference to help users stay on track and motivated.

Track

Contains habit tracker, linked to lists, as well as detailed reminders and progress stats. Users can share milestones like counts and streaks to fuel a sense of accomplishment.
