Tracking your activities is the best way to measure the impact that daily events have on your well-being. For example, I started tracking the days that I meditate and can see the direct result that it has had on my Avail Score. This is valuable information that helps me learn which activities I should be performing to maximize the benefit I receive from the time that I invest in my health.

To make this even more powerful, we have given you the option of tracking activities in one of five categories:


Physical activities are the things that you do that require physical exertion and are performed with a specific goal in mind. Some examples of physical activities include the following:

  • Working Out

  • Practicing for a Sport

  • Playing a Sport

  • Swimming Laps

  • Yoga Class

  • Running

  • Pilates

  • Home Renovations


Mental activities are things that primarily require cognitive effort to complete. Some example of mental activities include:

  • Meditating 

  • Studying for an Exam

  • Completing an Assignment

  • Reading a Textbook

  • Writing an Article

  • Editing a Video

  • Learning a New Skill

  • Journalling


Social activities are things that you do that primarily require social effort to complete. Some examples of social activities include:

  • Joining a Social Group

  • Going to a Rally

  • Attending an Improv Class

  • Going to Church

  • Spending time with Friends


Leisure activities are things from the previous categories that you may perform with no specific goal in mind. Some example of leisure activities include:

  • Going for a Hike

  • Playing a Video Game

  • Reading a Novel 

  • Going to a Concert

  • Painting a Picture


Occupational activities are things relating to your current profession. Some example of occupational activities include:

  • Giving a Presentation

  • Attending a Networking Event

  • Giving a Speech

  • Travel for work

These are just of a few examples to give you an idea of how to categorize the activities you track. There is no limit to the number or specificity of activities that you can track. Any activity that you want to measure the impact of can be monitored in Avail.
