Understanding the Wellbeing Score

How to Read the Score

A higher Wellbeing Score indicates a balanced combination of good sleep quality and active lifestyle. Evaluate each factor's impact to pinpoint areas of excellence or those needing improvement.

Interpreting the State

  • High : Reflects exceptional sleep quality and physical activity levels.
  • Medium : Indicates good sleep and activity patterns, with some room for improvement.
  • Low : Suggests either sleep quality or physical activity, or both, are below optimal levels.
  • Minimal : Denotes poor sleep and activity patterns, requiring immediate attention to enhance health.

Using the Score for Improvement

Focus on improving factors that negatively impact your score. Enhancing sleep regularity or increasing daily steps can have a significant positive effect on your Wellbeing Score.

Limitations and Considerations

The Wellbeing Score provides a holistic health overview but is not a medical assessment. Individual health conditions and external influences can affect the score. For comprehensive health evaluations, consult healthcare professionals.

Wellbeing Score Factors

Incorporates all factors from the Activity and Sleep scores, emphasizing a balanced approach to physical activity and sleep for overall health.

# Factor Definition Relevance Optimal Value Reference
1. Active Hours Represents the number of hours in a day where the individual is sufficiently active, based on a minimum step count. This factor assesses the overall activeness throughout the day, crucial for maintaining good health and preventing lifestyle-related diseases. Ideally, most waking hours should involve some level of physical activity. Buckworth, Janet, and Claudio Nigg. "Physical activity, exercise, and sedentary behavior in college students."
2. Daily Steps Counts the average number of steps taken each day. Daily steps are a fundamental measure of physical mobility and overall activity level. Aim for at least 10,000 steps per day as a general guideline for good health. Zhang, Kuan, et al. "Measurement of human daily physical activity."
3. Activity Goals Tracks progress towards personalized physical activity targets based on the recommended value for the individual's age. Meeting activity goals is indicative of a committed and structured approach to physical fitness. Achieving daily or weekly activity targets tailored to individual fitness levels. Dunn, Andrea L., Ross E. Andersen, and John M. Jakicic. "Lifestyle physical activity interventions: History, short-and long-term effects, and recommendations."
4. Sedentary Periods Monitors durations of prolonged inactivity or minimal physical movement. Prolonged sedentary behavior is linked to various health risks and should be minimized. Limiting sedentary periods to less than 8 hours a day, including work-related sitting. Owen, Neville, et al. "Too much sitting: the population-health science of sedentary behavior."
5. Calories Burnt Estimates the total number of calories expended through physical activity. Caloric expenditure is key to understanding the intensity and effectiveness of physical activities. Varies based on individual metabolic rates and activity levels. Aim for a caloric expenditure that supports your fitness and health goals. Schwartz, Michael W., et al. "Obesity pathogenesis: an endocrine society scientific statement."
6. Total Sleep Time Measures the total duration of sleep in a given period. Essential for assessing the adequacy of sleep, which is crucial for overall health and well-being. Adequate sleep is associated with better cognitive function, emotional well-being, and physical health. 7-9 hours per night for adults, as recommended by sleep experts and health organizations. Schwartz, M.W., et al. (2017). "Obesity pathogenesis: An endocrine society scientific statement."
7. Night Time Activity Tracks physical activity during typical sleeping hours. Indicates disturbances or restlessness during sleep, impacting sleep quality. Frequent night time activity can be a sign of sleep disorders or poor sleep hygiene. Minimal to no significant activity during sleep hours, indicating uninterrupted and restful sleep. Rajaratnam, S.M.W., and Arendt, J. (2001). "Health in a 24-h society.”
8. Sleep Regularity Measures the consistency of sleep patterns over time. Regular sleep patterns are linked to better sleep quality and overall health. Irregular sleep patterns can disrupt the circadian rhythm, affecting both mental and physical health. Consistent sleep and wake times daily, including weekends, to maintain circadian rhythm stability. Chaput, J.P., et al. (2020). "Sleep timing, sleep consistency, and health in adults: A systematic review."
9. Sleep Routine Evaluates the consistency of pre-sleep rituals and timings. A consistent pre-sleep routine can significantly enhance sleep quality by preparing the body and mind for rest. It aids in faster sleep onset and deeper sleep stages. Bedtime and wake time that align with natural light-dark cycles, ideally sleeping during nighttime hours. Wulff, K., et al. (2010). "Sleep and circadian rhythm disruption in psychiatric and neurodegenerative disease."
10. Sleep Debt Accumulated deficit of sleep over an extended period compared to the individual’s sleep needs. Sleep debt is linked to various health risks, including cognitive impairment and mood disorders. It’s a critical factor in understanding long-term sleep sufficiency and health impacts. Minimal to no sleep debt, indicating regular attainment of nightly sleep needs over an extended period. Spiegel, K., Leproult, R., and Van Cauter, E. (1999). "Impact of sleep debt on metabolic and endocrine function."
