“SuperBetter is a game that helps you recover from any illness or injury — or achieve any health goal — by increasing your personal resilience. Resilience means staying curious, optimistic and motivated even in the face of the toughest challenges.
SuperBetter creates a private, online space where your closest friends and family become allies in your adventure toward health and wellness. The game is played in two parts: First, a set of 7 guided missions that create the foundation for your journey. Then, an open-ended, self-guided adventure that you play with your family and friends in the real world—not a virtual environment—in an effort to achieve your health goals.
We believe that instead of being diminished by obstacles in our way, we can grow stronger—much stronger. In fact, science tells us that dramatic, positive changes can occur in our lives as a direct result of facing an extreme challenge—whether it be coping with a serious illness, daring to quit smoking, or dealing with depression. We call this getting SuperBetter!”
This past weekend, I was quite excited to learn about SuperBetter while listening to one of my regular podcasts. Secret identities, missions, secret headquarters, and epic wins–all in the name of a game that creates point systems and incentives for reaching health goals? This sounds like just the thing that Rheumatoid Arthritis Guy would be interested in!
SuperBetter is currently in preview mode, but I would recommend that you request an invite today via this link: https://www.superbetter.us/users/register_beta. Once a few of us are granted access, we can take it for a test drive and see how it works.
