New App to Guide You to Better Health

Thursday, March 3, 2016 @ 1:43 PM

carrotPrince George, B.C.- The  Province has   unveiled a new app  that is designed to get you  on the path  to better health.

It’s all about rewards,  and  could be considered a “carrot and stick” approach to healthier living,  only  there is no stick.

It’s called “Carrot Rewards” and  allows  you to  pile up the reward points  for things like Aeroplan,  SaveOn’s More Rewards,  PetroPoints,  or Scene.

The app  allows the user to chose their ‘rewards’  and  rack up points  by taking part in quizzes  and activities.  Later phases  will include points for  activities such as  going to the gym, or buying  fruits and vegetables. The app is also designed to link up with wearable devices in later stages to track and reward healthy behaviour.

The app works on smartphones and is available free of charge on iTunes and Google Play, or by visiting: http://www.carrotrewards.ca


We need to implement a reward system for the Premier and members of the legislature.

If they tell the truth on an issue they get points. If they are found to be fudging the issue they get demerit marks.

If a member gets a certain number of demerit marks, he is required to do the honorable thing and resign. If they reach a certain number of good points, they get an increase in salary and one extra day off.

We could have an App that would show where they were every day of the year, and the more time they spend in their constituency office, or in the legislature the more points they get. Those with high expense accounts lose points, those with low expense accounts gain points, and on and on it goes.

In other words, playing stupid games should be a two way street. Do these people actually believe that we have nothing to do, but to play their games???

I would just like to see this app in computer form.

the rewards could be collected via email but I am not even worried about those, such as they are… help with a healthier living would be nice
