Abstract

People spend a large portion of time at their workplace and henceforth, need actions to recharge their mind and body. Therefore, it is important to highlight on health promotion activities in the workplace that focus on changing personal health behaviours such as diet. Research has revealed that physical activities increase work efficiency [1] and planned naps taken during work keep suitable levels of waking function for day-time and night-time work [2]. Most relevant research has been done without considering the theoretical concept and empirical approach. This study aims to develop persuasive applications incorporating psychological theories to combine these implicit measures such as consuming a healthy diet, physical activity and napping at the workplace. The quantitative and qualitative approach will be used to empirically measuring the effectiveness of the applications in the context of employees’ health behaviour change. It is hoped that users will benefit from improved health using the applications.
