Second Nature is a 12-week behavioural change programme for people living with type 2 diabetes that's primarily delivered through a smartphone or tablet app.
The programme helps you build healthier habits, learn more about type 2 diabetes and supports long-term lifestyle change by providing:
- Evidence-based structured education on living with diabetes, nutrition, exercise, sleep, stress management, and positive psychology
- Peer group support (an online group of 10 others similar to you)
- Personalised health coaching from a registered dietitian
- Tracking technology (smart weighing scales and a wearable activity tracker).
