You own your body, and biohacking is simply the desire to understand your mind and body, to reach its full potential. Whether you leverage on the advancements in modern technology, or research and implement traditional methods, biohacking has but one goal, and that is to become the best version of yourself. Below are some of the reasons why you should start to consider biohacking.
For your health
In parallel with the process of understanding how your body works, you can enhance your lifestyle to improve your health. After all, most people want to be fit, healthy and ultimately live longer. For instance, while you already know that eight hours of sleep is recommended to recharge your mind and body, biohacking is simply using a device to track your sleep and monitor the amount and quality of rest you are getting. In this way, you will be able to adjust things that will help you get a meaningful rest, such as choosing darker shades for your bedroom curtains. Apart from your sleep and rest pattern, you can also biohack your diet, water intake, or exercise. Most importantly, you can implement it for your mental health, minimizing episodes of depression or mood instability. With these factors, you increase your chances of extending your lifespan.
For a quality life
Getting enough rest affects your mood when you wake up. Getting sufficient nutrients from the food you eat means that you are eating better. These, together with being able to live an active lifestyle, without any aches and pains restricting you to do so, overall leads to an improved quality of life. Later on, you will begin to notice that your brain and memory seldom fails you, and that your body feels at its best. You will also notice that you have more energy, even without consuming excessive sugar or caffeine. With biohacking, you have the freedom to discover what works for your body at your own pace. Furthermore,it guides you in rebuilding your life by making more informed and better decisions that improve the quality of your life.
To improve your looks
Inner health and happiness ultimately shows on the outside. More than the numbers on the scale, your appearance is merely a reflection of your self-confidence. Self-confidence is greatly improved through biohacking because it targets your personal perception of what is best for your body. It entails a positive mindset that improves your emotions and how you treat your body. It also improves your body, mind, and soul as a whole, which definitely shows.
In conclusion, becoming the best version of yourself is no longer limited to just living a healthy lifestyle. It also entails the need for you to understand the biological composition of your body and leverage on that. You can take advantage of the modernization in technology to do so or learn from the studies and research in the past. Nevertheless, it is time to start changing the environment within you and take full control of your own body.
