Dr. Dan Pardi is a researcher at Stanford University in California and at Leiden University in the Netherlands who specializes in studying lifestyle factors like sleep, exercise, and diet. He is the CEO of Human OS, an app designed to take a healthy lifestyle to the next level, hour by hour. This is not your typical health tracker. When I checked it out after meeting Dr. Dan at Paleo FX this year, I knew I had to share it with you!
Part of the reason Human OS succeeds is it operates on a behavior model called the Loop Model, which not only measures activity against your goals, but helps you tap into the “why” and the “how” to keep you motivated and overcoming obstacles. Human OS even takes into account the light (or lack of light) you’re exposed to during the day, memory retention, and other details other apps miss.
