In simple terms, biohacking can be described as ‘do-it-yourself biology’.
It involves a growing movement where individuals aim to improve quality of life and capabilities, outside of the traditional medicine approach.
Deeper sleep, higher energy levels, mental clarity, and faster muscle recovery, are on the other side of these simple tips and tricks.
This blog will covers 5 incredibly powerful, yet simple biohacks that you can incorporate into your life.
Sleep is a type of ‘brain cleansing’, where your brain and body enter a deep meditative state and allows recovery and the removal of toxins.
It's also a time where you build up your energy stores for the next day.
These are some of the most important things you can do for your sleep quality:
Limit artificial light/social media scrolling 1-2 hours before bed time
Don't eat any large meals after sunset
No caffeine after 2pm
Get bright light exposure in the mornings (kickstarts your circadian rhythm)
Drink valerian tea
It also helps to maintain a regular and consistent sleep schedule.
The more you move, the more you demand from your body.
As a result your brain and body learn to store more energy and your energy levels improve over time.
Movement also raises your body temperature, which leads to improved body composition and better sleep quality.
Now this doesn't mean you have to destroy yourself in the gym – you can also find ways to move that you enjoy, which fit into your schedule.
Move as much as possible throughout the day, and try to ensure that some of it is outdoors – preferably in Nature.
"You are what you eat"
It’s clear what the impact of diet in the last couple of decades has had on community health, diseases and obesity.
We are not here to promote any specific restrictions or meal plans. What we recommend is eating mindfully, with minimal processed foods as possible.
There is no “one size fits all” here, so find what works for you and stick to it.
This sounds like a very scientific term – but it essentially just means exposing yourself to the cold.
Cryotherapy causes constriction of your blood vessels. Once our body returns to normal temperatures, the rush of blood back to our extremities causes a faster transport of nutrients and minerals.
This could be in the ocean or even an iced bath/shower – for a minimum of three minutes.
This leads to a healthier, better functioning circulatory system.
Red light therapy is one of the most effective methods of biohacking.
The absorption of energy from the wavelengths of light between 600 – 900 nm by the mitochondria in your cells results in a number of nervous system and metabolic responses.
It has been clinically proven to reduce downtime from injury, reduce pain & inflammation and provide an energy boost.
Ultimately, biohacking is a way to change your body, health and your brain functioning in order to reach your goals and achieve a peak state of mind. Once you begin, you will never look back!
