Hello and greetings of the season, whatever that means to you!
It’s been quite the year, and frankly, one I’d rather not repeat. Despite that however, I remain optimistic for the year ahead. The year was not all bad, and in spite of the not-so-good parts, I have a new-found enthusiasm for 2017.
Why, you may ask? Well, it seems that I have stumbled upon some tips and tricks that might allow me to hack my way to a better coming year. Amen to that!
Hacking as a concept is nothing new to me, since my day job of 19 years has me working in IT. Applying the hacking concept to my personal well-being however, is something I really only discovered formally this past year. I have been “tweaking” many things for years now, but 2017 will see this go to another level.
My “biohacking” journey began much like that of others who are pursuing this concept; from the desire to upgrade to a better “new-and-improved” version of myself, if you will. Since becoming a Nutritionist, my health has improved, but still, my day to day performance is not quite what I would desire overall.
I especially love listening to educational podcasts during my workouts, and in the course of that (almost) daily retreat in 2016, I came to discover and appreciate the people who are touted as the leading edge biohackers of our time.
Show by show, I became addicted to the possibility that I might be able to improve my current life to something of an upgraded version – a “2.0” as would be commonly described in the world of software. In truth though, this might be more of a version 5.0… ?
So, stay tuned in 2017 because I will be blogging about my self-experiments and my experiences while hacking my lifestyle using: super-nutrition (of course), light and sound therapy, essential oils, and even “techie tools” like virtual-reality, to name a few things. It will be a virtual cornucopia of stimulation for all of my senses (pardon the pun).
I’ll write my unbiased opinions of the tools and products I am using along the way, because, hey – I don’t have any sponsorship or advertising companies to influence my comments!
Wishing you an awesome 2017, and may you also experience and better version of you.
