Gaming Your Bad Habits Away
If you’re having difficulty breaking out of those bad habits like not exercising, eating the wrong foods, smoking or watching too much Game of Thrones, then why not try turning your life into a roleplaying game? HabitRPG allows you to establish a character – which is you. You then assign goals and and by achieving them, you not only your specified rewards (like being allowed to watch GoT) you also get to level up and receive treasure within the game. Failing to achieve your goals or falling back into bad habits results in you losing health. It’s a lot like Nethack or Rogue.
It’s a great idea and a potentially useful tools for die-hard gamers that are having difficulty remembering to eat, exercise and sometimes even bathing (you know who you are =). It’s just another way you can improve your life through using gamification to assist in your motivations.
