Acquisition of Healthy Habits: personalized identification of psychological inconsistencies that hinder their achievement through open-source software

Funded project: Fundación Mapfre (Call for research grants 2022 Ignacio H. de Larramendi)

The simple desire of a person to follow healthy habits often has no effect or fades in a short time. More than 80% of the people who propose it fail. This project aims to offer a methodology for identifying, analyzing and mathematizing inconsistencies, obstacles or cognitive conflicts that make it challenging to achieve the subject’s intention to incorporate healthy habits into her life. All this, with the support of a free software computer tool, which presents in 3D and / or Virtual Reality, the subject’s Cognitive Map, its inconsistencies, and the different behavioral change scenarios. This, together with an individualized report, aims to offer the subject and / or the healthcare professional involved, a feedforward with specific intervention actions that improve the percentage of achievement.
