Biohacking centres largely around yourlifestyle and how you can align your habits and day to day living which is namely what you eat, when you eat it, and how you exercise. The idea is that this will make you healthier, happier and more productive.
Biohacking your body means changing your chemistry and your physiology through science and self-experimentation to increase energy and vitality. Biohacking includes things like lifestyle and dietary changes, werable technology, implant technology, genetic engineering and more.
Biohacking can be described as citizen or do-it-yourself biology. For many “biohackers,” this consists of making small, incremental diet or lifestyle changes to make small improvements in your health and well-being.
Tony Robins writes that The best place to start biohacking your body is with diet, exercise and mindfulness exercises. From there, start using wearables like the FitBit or the Apple Watch to track the way you operate. You could also start experimenting with the power of music in your everyday life and adopting a sustainable diet. Once you’ve mastered these basic biohacks, you’ll be ready for something new and different. Consider one of these non-invasive methods and see what benefits you reap.
Tony’s list of biohacking include Cryotherapy, Red Light Therapy, Compression Therapy, Osteostrong, Intermittent Fasting, Functional Music, Gratitiude, and Supplements,
Holland & Barratt’s article on Biohacking writes that “Otherwise known as DIY biology, biohacking is a concept that has become popular with the masses – especially those who are making a deliberate effort to look after their health.

The term ‘biohacking’ was first used back in 1988 by the Washington Post, in an article written about the future of personal health and how biotechnology will be used to change the genetics of living beings. They write on four different types of biohacking which are Nutrigenomics, Grinder biohacking, DIY biology and DIY gene therapy.
