Introduction to biohacking

Or are you watching what you eat because you’ve noticed that it ma you feel better? The you are already biohacking. The aim is to use various methods and techniques to improve well-being and performance.

Biohacking – A centuries old method

Biohacking is not a new concept. It is based on the idea that by understanding and controlling your own body, you can maximise your health and performance. This often means returning to a more natural lifestyle and developing an awareness of one’s own body.

What are the benefits of biohacking?

Where do the healthiest centenarians live? To find out, American science journalist Dan Buettner travelled around the world and identified five regions called Blue Zones:

  • By using biohacking methods you can:
  • Achieve more energy, productivity and concentration
  • Improve your performance in training and everyday life
  • Strengthen your resilience
  • Reduce stress and promote better sleep
  • Increase your self-awareness
  • Achieve personal and professional goals more easily

Areas of biohacking

  1. Nutrition: Pay attention to regional, seasonal and high-quality food. Periods of fasting and a gut-healthy diet are common practices. Many biohackers favour a paleo or ketogenic diet.
  2. Exercise: Regular strength and endurance training, mobility and stretching are important. Everyday movements such as climbing stairs and going for walks are also beneficial.
  3. Regeneration and sleep: A good night’s sleep is essential. Methods such as cold training, meditation, breathing exercises and avoiding blue light in the evening can help to improve the quality of sleep.
  4. Mindset: A healthy mindset is important. Journaling, gratitude diaries and socialising can help you stay mentally healthy.

Routines for success

Routines, especially morning and evening routines, can help you to effectively integrate your biohacking methods into your everyday life. An example morning routine could look like this:

  • Oil pulling for improved oral hygiene
  • Drink two glasses of water to replenish your fluid balance
  • Exercise, meditation or breathing exercises
  • A cold shower for energy and alertness
  • Journaling or creating a to-do list
