In addition to surveying users to discover their 2013 goals, Mindbloom also analyzes millions of life improvement actions taken throughout the year across its interactive health applications, which include the Life Game, Bloom and the new energy tracker JUICE, all of which use similar principles of behavioral science and gaming mechanics to inspire people to live happier and healthier lives. As the season of goal making approaches and New Year's Resolutions are made, Mindbloom discovered that what people said they wanted in 2012 in last year's survey results turned out to conflict with daily small actions they took across Mindbloom's interactive health apps throughout the year to grow the life they want.
