Biohack your body?
With behaviours written into the subconscious over a lifetime, patterns can be hard to break. Biohacking has emerged as a method to help us modify or discard undesirable habits. As the term hacking implies, there are shortcuts to re-coding our cognitive and physiological systems. The changes don’t have to be drastic… we can work on micro-adjustments that provide the best bang for the buck – the lowest hanging fruit. This will ensure that we do not deplete our precious willpower as we begin our transformation to a life of optimal health.
