A Quick Intro to Biohacking
What is Biohacking?
Although this may seem like a simple question, there are a lot of aspects to this movement of people taking charge of their own unique biology.
There are some people on the cutting edge of this movement. While what they are doing is very interesting and will probably influence how we look at self care in the future, it can make it seem like you need to invest a huge amount of time, money, and energy to get any results. That simply isn’t true.
If you break it down, it really does mean that you are hacking your own biology. You are finding different ways to improve your human experience by tweaking your environment, daily habits, nutrition, movement practices, and thought patterns- just to name a few.
You can go with the high tech route, using technical gadgets and testing as well as smart drugs or new treatments. Some examples would be the oura ring, the muse headband , or cryotherapy.
You can also start with a simpler (cheaper) route by improving their sleep habits, adopting a meditation practice, becoming fat adapted (keto), adding in some Bulletproof coffee, or trying some intermittent fasting- then tracking their results and personalizing it as they go for optimal effects.
Or- you can mix and match!
Who does it?
I think on some level, everyone who is interested in feeling better or living a healthy lifestyle is doing to some extent. You don’t need a huge budget or the latest gizmo to make small, incremental changes that ultimately enhance your health and overall well being.
How do I do it?
You can try changing some of your habits one at a time, and tracking your results. See what gives you the most effective changes and then keep adapting different things until you get to what you might feel is an ideal balance of effort, results, and practicality.
For example, if you were to focus on your sleep hygiene or habits you might start by deciding how much sleep you want to get every night. Then, try setting and ideal bedtime (10pm) and an ideal wake time (6am.) Do that for a week, keeping a journal of how it goes. After about a week, look at how it is going and adjust it so that it works a bit better for you. Once you get that pretty set you might want to look at screen time, how you wind down or get ready for sleep, eating times etc. etc.
If that sounds interesting but daunting to do on your own, you can hire a life-coach. Our job is to understand your goals, facilitate strategies to achieve them, provide accountability when desired, and adapt or reroute when needed. Usually, you commit to a minimum of 6 sessions and meet on a consistent basis in order to get the most out of your investment.

What is it and how can it help you?
Reiki is an incredibly simple yet powerful method that can enhance your life in many ways.
According to the International Center for Reiki Training, “Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.”
To read the full overview of Reiki from this source, please click here.
Here are just a few possible benefits:
You can get a Reiki session from a practitioner and/or learn how to perform Reiki on yourself.
It isn’t a religion, and is very accessible even if you’re not familiar with or a believer in energy work.
Although you may feel skeptical, I whole heartedly encourage you to remain open minded and give it a try!
I was regularly practiced reiki many years ago when I was working as a massage therapist, but it somehow disappeared from my life as I was focused other things. I recently revisited and re-certified in this technique. I continue to be amazed by the subtle effects in my life and body as well as the massive improvement in my ability to meditate.

Winnie & Pandiculation
For those of you who don’t know- my sweet, old boy Winnie passed away in early April. It was sudden & swift, but I was there with him.
He was such a wonderful presence in my life and taught me so much about unconditional love, living fully in the moment, & pure joy in the simple things. Here is a picture of him expertly demonstrating pandiculation, which I highly encourage you to try right now!

Vulnerability is terrifying for most of us.
How do we soften into it so that we get to feel all the good stuff?

Warming Up as a Daily Practice
We all know that warming up is a good idea before we engage in any big activity.
Have you ever considered adding in a quick warm up in the morning to prepare your body and mind for everyday life? Connecting to your body while moving and breathing with intention are powerful tools that can set you up for a successful, pain-free day. You don't have to have any fancy equipment or even do the same exact exercises every day to reap the benefits.
I get feedback from many clients that they feel stiff or are in pain when they first get out of bed. I invariably as them if they are doing some specific movements (that they already know) to get their body moving, increase circulation, and ease any pain. The answer is usually no for a variety of reasons. The underlying issue is often that they aren't aware of their control of the situation. They aren't accessing the tools they posses to feel better and/or haven't made the conscious choice to use them.
I recently went through a quick warm up sequence with a client who came in feeling terrible, uncomfortable, and frustrated with her body. We focused on breathing deeply, engaging her core, and included 3 or 4 really simple movements in a quadruped position. She was amazed at how much better she felt. She was even more amazed that she already knew all these movements and could have done them as soon as she started to feel stiff & achy. I didn't want her to memorize the sequence we did, I encouraged her to try to remember that she has skills and could use them as needed.
Now I'm not saying that a short warm up will fix or heal everything, but I can safely say that it will help you to feel better (on many levels.) Try it and see!
Not sure where to start or what to include in your warm up?

Gratitude as a Practice
Did you know that actively practicing gratitude literally rewires your brain to default to positive thinking? There are are many ways to cultivate and express gratitude. A few of the simplest that come to my mind are:
- a gratitude jar
- sharing 3 reasons you are grateful with a loved one
- meditation (breathing and immersing yourself in feelings of gratitude for a few minutes)
You can also make up your own way to recognize and honor feelings of gratitude.
Can you pick one that you can commit to doing every day for 2 weeks? I encourage you to try it, as you begin to feel the positive feedback it will help keep you motivated. I would suggest that you keep it simple & practical, and to be really honest about what you can feasibly do every day in order to set yourself up for success rather than failure.
