“More quality of life, more performance and more knowledge about yourself and your body – biohacking creates all of this. The Daily Biohacker (2020) is about how you can integrate the findings of this trend towards self-optimization into your everyday life in a very practical way with lots of small exercises, mental suggestions and well-founded knowledge.”
“What is biohacking? The term is made up of bio (for biology and life) and hacking, the English word for decryption. In the exciting world of biohacking, the aim is to use curiosity to advance the biological development of our very individual potential.
The so-called mitochondria are central to this. These small power plants in our cells are essential for our health, our performance and our survival. In principle, this is where the electricity for our body, the adenosine triphosphate, or ATP for short, is produced. Mitochondrial performance depends on many factors: our fitness, our diet, toxins in the environment and also the lighting conditions in which we live. If we take good care of our mitochondria, we can be rewarded with higher energy levels, improved memory and slower cell aging. That is why mitochondria are the real superheroes of everyday life for biohackers.
But what’s the fastest way to get your mitochondria going? Quite simply: through movement. Just a few minutes increase the production of ATP. If you lack motivation for a project, start with a brisk walk or do a few jumping jacks. A dance performance also works wonders.
Once you have started your mitochondrial motor, you should bring structure to your everyday life. Regularity is one of the most important factors for sustained performance. Try to establish a steady rhythm in your everyday life by finding out for yourself when your personal best times for eating, working, sleeping and relaxing are.
But how do you manage to keep this rhythm? According to a 2010 study by Stanford University, willpower is largely a matter of the mind. The more willpower you trust yourself, the more of it you have. So take care of optimizing your mitochondrial performance with exercise and the right mindset. It’s the little routines called micro-actions that give you a boost of energy. Need even more motivation? Make your bed every morning, greet colleagues with high fives or fist bumps, bathe in sunlight for five minutes a day.”
