1step2life

Log your progress.
Not your pain.

An app for people living with chronic pain that lets you . . .

Start where you are.
Set your own goals.
Take back your life – one step at a time.

Pain shrinks your world.
We give you the tools to take it back.

Chronic pain shrinks your world until just lying in bed hurts. And every time you think about pain, it gets worse. How do you break the cycle?

Research shows putting your life on hold until the pain goes away is not the answer.

Taking action is the better course.

We start where you are and help you celebrate each, a chat with a friend, a walk around the block or coffee with a friend.

With 1step2life you can:

  • Set weekly goals
  • Record progress
  • Track mood and activities
  • Choose how often you want to track your pain – from daily to never
  • Visualize and relationship between your daily progress, mood, functioning, and pain

Daily tracking of:

  • Activities – bathing, cooking, and self care
  • Exercise – from getting the mail to physical therapy
  • Reaching out and caring for others – texting, socializing talking to pets
  • Stress reduction: recreation, fun activities, biofeedback, meditation, prayer
  • Sleep
  • Diet & Hydration
  • Medications
