Biohacking is basically the journey of experimenting with external/internal factors to help YOU become the BEST version of you. And here's a few tips to help YOU embark on your own journey to be the BEST version of YOU, the superhuman version as the Gillies, our twins say.
1. Identify WHY this is important to you... something I discovered is when we focus on SERVING + helping others, we stay motivated. When the WHY is more than just ourselves.
2. Biohacking isn't just about fancy gadgets... it has to do a lot with our habits + the not so fancy day-in, day-out tasks we do which no one will see.
3. There's more to it than just NUTRITION... it's also about our MINDSET, breathing, movement, functional medicine and so much more.
4. Overwhelmed with where to start choose one habit and implement until it becomes second nature. If we try to GO BIG or GO HOME, we tend to get frustrated or overwhelmed and slip back into older habits.
5. Try to spend 30 minutes each day with your feet in the soil. It's such an easy concept to do... yet because it's easy to do, it's also EASY TO FORGET TO DO!
6. Prioritize your SLEEP. Treat her like you would a relationship... plan when you are going to sleep, prepare a solid night time routine and focus ONLY on sleep when it's time.
7. Put down the compareschlager. Not sure where I heard this term, but the concept is simple. Comparing YOUR journey to someone else will simply drain you of energy + the joy you feel when YOU accomplish goals. You are not on the same path as anyone else... nor is anyone on YOUR path. So why on earth would you compare your journey? Embrace WHERE you are and...
8. CELEBRATE each milestone, no matter how big or small. By focusing on even the tiniest of victories, you are creating motivation!
Whew! There's my 8 tips to getting started on your "biohacking" journey.... remember, it doesn't have to be go BIG or go HOME we simply start by focusing on just 1% better every single day!
