Event Types :
Join us for The Routine Formula (Webinar) on Thursday, May 20 at 1 PM.

In this session, Dr. Mary Jean Amon, an Assistant Professor from the University of Central Florida’s School of Modeling, Simulation, and Training, will be interviewed about her research that highlights the benefits vs. non-benefits of behavioral routines for daily functioning. This presentation centers on new research regarding routineness in health-related behaviors, outlines how the benefits and drawbacks of routineness are more nuanced and how wearable sensors can provide insights into beneficial health behaviors.

By participating in this program, you can expect to learn that:

  • given conflicting accounts on the benefits of routine, research is needed to examine how routineness versus flexibility in health-related behaviors correspond to personality traits, mental health, and occupational outcomes;
  • using automatically sensed health-related behaviors collected from 483 information workers over a roughly two-month period, the benefits and drawbacks of health routineness (i.e., patterns of daily step count, sleep duration, and heart rate variability) are examined;
  • it is often believed that routine is desirable, but new research suggests that effects of routineness are more nuanced, and wearable sensors can provide insights into beneficial health behaviors.

This program is presented by Dr. Mary Jean Amon and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
