LifeDojo This telehealth service has a different spin. It focuses on helping people -- specifically employees -- create new healthy habits. LifeDojo is targeted at employers who want to keep their employees happy and healthy by offering specific services to boost overall health. By offering four different 12-week programs, each focused on a different aspect of health, LifeDojo boasts the capability to help people create healthy and long lasting habits. You can choose from Fit for Life: Exercise; Healthy Eating: Beyond Diet Hype; Happiness Science and Mastering Stress. These are four common areas that office workers might struggle with, given the 40 plus hour weeks they often spend stuck behind a desk.

LifeDojo guides employees through the process step-by-step, offering encouragement, motivation and support along the way. Each program starts with two weeks of motivation through the use of videos and science-backed evidence. Next, employees get a custom plan where they can choose the type of activities they’d like to do the most. Once a plan is established, employees get access to a live health coach, who is available for support and to hold themselves accountable. LifeDojo will also work with companies to help them make small changes to their office structure to help support employees trying to make a change.
