At PALM Centre, the core of what we do is to walk this journey together with you to help you

get to your goals. We assess your health, motivation, set realistic goals and expectations, 

empower and encourage you in this journey, and monitor your progress. We take time to help you understand your lifestyle habits and demands of your socio-environmental situations.

 

By doing so, it gets to the bottom of why you do certain things e.g. I didn't realise I didn't need coffee, it was actually a habit to get it when passing by this coffee shop on my way back to office from lunch.  With habits, sometimes you just need an outside perspective to help you become aware and see what can be improved. That will make it easier for you to change your eating habits, activity levels, sleeping patterns, prioritise your work as well as your free time.

  • Highly trained and qualified - Each health manager is equipped with the necessary tools for effective behavioural change

  • Correlate your lifestyle habits and health parameters - Your health manager will help you understand the relationship between your lifestyle habits and health parameters. E.g. How poor sleep affects your blood pressure levels

Why must I log pictures of my food?

It is important for your dedicated coach to know the details of your lifestyle to help you. Logging food photos is an accurate way to estimate nutrition intake and estimate portion size. Besides, studies show that logging your food photos can help you achieve better results by increasing mindfulness of food choices, self-awareness of hunger and encouraging healthier choices. Through the app, you can upload all the relevant information and interact with your health manager. All your personal information will remain confidential and secure.
