A personal health and lifestyle platform helps individuals maintain a personal health and lifestyle record and obtain personalized, lifestyle-related advice to improve their health by changing their daily habits. The platform leverages the data stored in a typical personal health record, augmenting it with environmental and sensor data and enabling the monitoring and analysis of an individual's habits. Sharing habits and advice with doctors and friends empowers individuals to become wellness coproducers and leads to a personal health and lifestyle record that is much more useful to the individual maintaining it.
