While there are a lot of exercise trackers and personal fitness apps out there, few focus on holistic body and mind improvement. Enter Fabulous, a self-improvement app aimed at upgrading mind and body to help make you feel, well, fabulous. Based on scientific principles and incubated in Duke's Behavioural Economics Lab, Fabulous starts you out with simple goals like trying to lose weight, get better sleep, or improve your concentration; the app helps with simple exercises, scheduled notifications and activities, and other coaching tools designed to build healthy habits for body and mind.
Fabulous works through conditioning and it works slowly. Instead of creating a giant routine at the beginning of the journey - which would end up being overwhelming - the app simply starts off with the task of drinking a glass of water upon waking up.
A big part of the app is the ability to create 'rituals' for the morning, afternoon, and evening. You set an alarm for when you wake up, and you can also opt to schedule an afternoon or evening ritual as well. Then, Fabulous will automatically activate and let you complete the habits.
