As many say, the body is a temple. Harmonizing it with your mind is one of the keys to living a healthy, happy life. So how do you do that? Well, bio hacking is one option that may hold the answer.
Bio hacking is one of the more recent health trends to be suggested for optimal healthcare practices.
It comes in many forms and most consumers may be familiar with some of them already.
Nootropics are natural or synthetic substances developed to enhance the mind’s potential by maximizing brain function, usually through memory, focus, or mood. Tea and coffee are two common natural ones, but synthetic ones like L-Theanine and L-Tyrosine can be found in various health stores.
Nutrition is one area where bio hacking plays a role, specifically in the form of nutritional psychology. By keeping a journal of certain foods being eaten and the moods or mental processing capabilities afterward, one can draw possible links. From there, it’s easier to identify which foods or substances help your mind to function best.
Wearable technology is one of the more popular ways to “hack your health”. Sleep trackers, fitness trackers, and other similar technology identify certain internal behaviors your body experiences during everyday actions throughout your day. You can then discuss this information with your doctor.
