We are creating a platform and community to help you improve your health.

We do this because WE want to become super healthy, super happy.

The idea is to die young, as late as possible.

Why we made CleverlyHappy.com

With this website we hope to contribute to increased happiness around the world by helping people improve health and stay healthy.

Increased health improves well-being, it reduces suffering and helps us all together prosper and evolve. But we are not simply talking about medical or physical health. We include all aspects that contribute to good health in your lifetime.

The development of the site was motivated by what we see as a lack of integrated, systemic, long-term health promotion services even in developed countries. All around the world the health care system is designed around fixing you when you get sick. Preventive Health Care (also called Health Improvement) is built into the health care system but we argue that Preventive Health Care in its current form is very disorganized, simplistic and limited in its effectiveness.

Until now, it was up to you to figure out how to live a healthy lifestyle.

There are of course many good resources online for health improvement but it is all scattered around in different formats and varying quality. This makes it daunting if not impossible to get a good overview, and even more difficult to try to use the information in a meaningful and systematic manner for improving personal health.

We are trying to change this by developing a complete, easy to use platform for personal chronic disease prevention and health promotion.

By combining all the aspects of good health with platform features such as personal Health Contributing Behavior Rating and Reminders we allow for long-term sustainable and synergistic health improvement.

If you belong to one of these groups you may find that CleverlyHappy.com is less relevant to you. We hope that we in the future will have the resources to better accommodate your needs as well.

How is it different from other Health Apps and Health websites?

Many health Apps are designed around data capturing through sensors on your phone or other wearables. These Apps typically capture data on how physically active your are, your sleep rhythm etc.

Other health apps focus more on diet and weight loss while others are designed to target very specific health aspects such as for example nutrition or stress management.

CleverlyHappy.com on the other side is a complete health solution that helps you improve all known aspects of health and well-being rather than just focusing on a single specific aspect. A great number of aspects contribute to good health. We have arranged all of these into 8 categories: emotional health, environmental health, intellectual health, mental health, occupational health, physical health, social health, spiritual health .

How is it different from other Health websites?

Most health websites are content driven sites with articles about beauty and wellness.

CleverlyHappy.com is user driven, collaborative and scientific. We don't push out an ever ending stream of articles about wellbeing. Instead, we curate information about how to become and stay healthy and happy.

Theoretical principles

CleverlyHappy.com is designed around a health ladder. You move up the ladder on different health aspects as you become more conscious, motivated and engaged in improving your health.

  • Step 4 - You have motivation and you are continuously measuring, adjusting, and improving.
  • Step 3 - You have the knowledge, resources and skills to implement changes.
  • Step 2 - You have basic understanding about what needs to be done.
  • Step 1 - You have awareness of the importance of the health aspect.

Limitations

We do recognize that health recommendations should be tailored to the individual. Everyone is different and have different needs. Even so, we aim to create the most comprehensive resource that can be used for most people.

On CleverlyHappy you can decide to take part and answer questions related to your health situation. Unfortunately, there will be questions that will not make sense to you and your situation. In some cases these questions will not be relevant because of external factors or medical conditions that are out of your control. However in some cases there may be certain world views or underlying psychological aspects that may be keeping you from improving in certain health areas. We encourage you to identify these as part of the process towards better health.
