What is Recharge?
A personalised six week program focused on improving young men’s mood, energy and wellbeing by helping them to establish a good sleep/wake routine.
To improve sleep/wake routine-involves helping young men to achieve the following behaviours:
- Set wake up time
- Get up
- Get exposure to light
- Do some sort of activity (preferably within the first two hours of waking up)
Waking up at regular hours each day, the amount of sunlight you receive, and exercise can all help improve sleep patterns and consequently, wellbeing. Recharge sets you daily goals around wake up times, sunlight exposure, and exercise, and demonstrates to you how your energy and mood improve over time by prompting users to self-report on their mood/energy at different points in the day.
It helps get users up in the morning by forcing them to get out of bed and do 10 star jumps before the alarm turns off. It’s currently on the app store in beta form, and was created in partnership with the Young and Well CRC and BMRI. It’s about to undergo a research trial.
