Self-Tracking for Self-Insight and Behavior Change

Main content start

Self-tracking consists of recording the behaviors and/or thoughts and feelings that occur in one’s daily life. People typically undertake self-tracking to better understand and change their own behavioral or psychological patterns. In the MAP Lab, we study how everyday media (e.g., journals, mobile apps, wearables) can be harnessed as self-tracking tools to promote self-insight and behavior change. Much of our work in this area is focused on identifying self-tracking strategies that promote self-monitoring and self-reflection.
