Biohacking your body and your life
As long as humans have been able to count they have been working toward the optimization of the physical form. Whether it be in sports, grappling with a chronic illness, or looking to turn back the clock on aging, 'biohacking' is the way to optimize any physical goal one is attempting to achieve. Wearable Technology has taken this optimization to another level using collected data from tracking sleep, recovery, heart rate, HRV, respiratory rate, pacing, distance, cadence and nutrition. These are a few of the elements that wearables can track with either passively gathered data, or data entered by the wearer. Biohacking uses this data to help you gauge what is working and what is not to help tweak your training frequency, sleep, breathwork, hydration and macros to name a few. This data helps to reveal what is working and falling short in any wellness regime and assist in changing direction when needed. Favourite biohacking, wearable technology includes the Whoop watch and a Garmin Forerunner as well as any TeqMarq sports watch. These watches easily gather data for the wearer to build up the portfolio of the 'quantified self' but the human body is complex and dynamic so it is best to take biohacking one metric at a time. Start with a particular challenge or goal you want to overcome and then begin adding each different data set. Once you feel comfortable tracking each challenge, one of the best features is that you can look back over the gathered data and see trends. So whether you want to conquer the keto diet, help control your diabetes, get better sleep, remember to drink 8 glasses of water a day, or reach your fitness goals, using wearable technology and biohacking will assist in bringing you to a place where you are operating at peak performance.
