Healthy Habits Wins Surgeon Generals Healthy Apps Challenge
WASHINGTON,  February 22nd 2012, in  iPhone App News,   

[MobilePRwire.com] Redmond, WASHINGTON -  Healthy Habits, an iPhone app by 2Morrow Mobile, has been chosen as the winner of the U.S. Surgeon General's Healthy App Challenge. The free wellness app focuses on helping people live healthier, happier lives by changing their habits. Healthy Habits won in the category of integrative health and well being. This challenge was issued to developers by U.S. Surgeon General Regina Benjamin, MD and over 80 applications were submitted.


"I strongly believe in the importance of empowering individuals to make healthy choices," said Surgeon General Regina Benjamin, MD. "Readily accessible tools like social media and mobile apps can help people manage everything from dietary choices to physical activity, stress management and relaxation techniques."

Habits are an acquired pattern of behavior that often occurs automatically and without conscious thought. Poor habits can make it hard to create lasting change by sabotaging good intentions with unconscious behaviors. The Surgeon General's Vision for a Healthy and Fit Nation states that: "Change starts with the individual choices Americans make each day." Healthy Habits is an app that helps people reach their goals by changing their habits or default behaviors. Over 75,000 people have downloaded the Healthy Habits apps since launch in April 2011.

"We are honored to be recognized as a winner in the Surgeon General's Healthy Apps Challenge," said Brandon Masterson, President of 2Morrow Mobile. "Despite good intentions, many of today’s health issues are caused by our own unhealthy habits and changing them is hard to do. With Healthy Habits we set out to create an app that helps people turns their good intentions into action."

Masterson said he also wanted to congratulate the other winners of the Surgeon General’s Healthy Apps Challenge. "There are some great apps being created in the field of health and wellness, and we are excited to be part of the industry."
