Quality of Life index

We believe that technology should enable a better life. This is why we developed the Quality of Life Index that assesses your lifestyle and provides a personalized set of suggestions, recommendations, and references based on cutting edge medical research. Our goal is to help you lead a healthy lifestyle and get access to the best life insurance products at the best rates.This is why we developed GAIA (Guided Artificial Intelligence Assessment) - to assess one's health and lifestyle status in an intuitive and personal way. We'd like you to take just a few minutes (about 15) so we can understand and formulate a personalized score (QL index score) for you. Based on this assessment, we can provide advice to help you improve this score, meaning your actual, day to day, overall quality of life. Of course, this also means the potential of saving on your life insurance.

How is this QL score constructed? It's based on our most important lifestyle factors: Movement, nutrition, sleep, emotional health, and work-life balance. The QL Index is based on the most important lifestyle factors that influence longevity and quality of life. We assess movement, nutrition, sleep, lifestyle and wellbeing. All these things are in your control and by improving your score you can not only live a better and longer life, but also save significantly on your life insurance.

1. Movement

Being active is the single most important thing for your health. It helps you control your appetite, mood, sleep and reduces the risk of major physical and emotional diseases.So, what should you do?150 minutes of weekly moderate physical activity - walking, jogging, cycling or swimming for instance.

2. Sleep

Intuitively we are all aware of the advantages of a good night's sleep and the impact lack of sleep has on our ability to function throughout the day. Sleep is one of the basic ingredients that our body requires to function properly. Sleep deficiency will negatively impact the immune system, will result in a higher intake of carbohydrates, and will increase mortality risk, from all causes, by 15%.So, what should you do?Increase bright light exposure during the day and reduce blue light exposure in the evening. Try to sleep and wake up at consistent times and reduce irregular or long naps.

3. Emotional Health

If you are emotionally healthy you are in control of your thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and can cope better with life's challenges. What else? Strong relationships in your life, reduce the risk of premature death (this is comparable to smoking, obesity, and physical inactivity).So, what should you do?Aside from strengthening the connections around you of family and friends, adopt a pet. This counters loneliness, encourages you to spend time outside, and increases your physical activity.

4. Nutrition

What and how much you eat plays a central role in maintaining a healthy weight. This may even reverse chronic health conditions.So, what should you do?We know there are many different diets out there and it can be very confusing. However, most of the experts agree that eating "real food", preferably home-made food, is much better than fast or processed food. Try to add to your diet whole, natural foods, fruits and vegetables, and good sources of protein. Also, reduce or eliminate sugary drinks.

5. Balance

Having said all this, the quality of life is about the balance of it all - what you eat, what you enjoy, and how much you are active. In addition, finding time for yourself and others, in and outside of work, with a sense of purpose. We, at Sproutt, are aware of this important balance and can guide you to a better place.
