HABIT - Harnessing Automatic Behaviours Intervention Trial

(Harnessing Automatic Behaviours Intervention Trial): A habits-based pilot behaviour change intervention to increase physical activity in people with mild cognitive impairment or subjective cognitive decline.

This research study aims to investigate the feasibility and acceptability of a habits based physical activity intervention for older adult participants with mild cognitive impairment or subjective cognitive decline. This intervention will target your every-day habits to help create healthy, automatic habits of regular physical activity, that are easy to maintain over the long-term. You will be given an Apple Watch for the duration of the experiment, which combined with an Apple iPhone application will track your health outcomes. The application will also ask you to participate in some cognitive tests and psychological surveys. The study will also involve a physical activity habits workshop, and a one-hour one-on-one interview with an exercise physiologist.
