In the latest episode of Nested Folders, Scotty and I discussed our systems and mechanisms to keep consistent in our workflows and systems to avoid going off the rails, as well recognising as those tell tale signs that signal it happening.

In this week’s episode of Automators, David and I dove into health tracking. As it’s the start of the year I’ve been trying to figure out what my health goals are – but I couldn’t let them get away from me without a little automation!
After we recorded I stumbled across Charty, an app in beta which like many new apps popping up on my radar at the moment, is designed to integrate with Shortcuts. This one is, as you may guess from the name, designed to help you create charts with data. I’ve not yet figured out how to give it health data to make a chart (I suspect I need to split the times and data points first), but I’ll be experimenting with this over the next few weeks!
One of my favourite things to do with Shortcuts, is to make “dumb” devices smart. I’ve helped my parents track blood pressure and blood glucose, as well as added Health integration to my FitBit scales, all with just a few Shortcuts.
I hope you enjoy the 41st episode of Automators: Automated Health Tracking!
The key is to have a plan, so that you know what you’re changing when you change it. In this episode, Scotty and I talk about what it is to have a plan, make a plan, and deal with having a plan.

In this episode, David and I tackled health tracking and how we can automate it to get all of the pluses with as few negatives as possible. From “smartifying” health devices, to building habits and accountability, it’s all covered.
