Biohacking is a term that I was introduced to while reading Headstrong by Dave Asprey. Dave explains the term by stating simply that it is the desire to be the absolute best version of ourselves [https://blog.bulletproof.com/beginners-guide-to-biohacking-101/].
Have you ever struggled with clarity and focus? I have experienced many times in the past when I forgot someone’s name just as quickly as they told me it. There have also been times when I have found my mind drifting so far away from my current conversation that I couldn’t even tell you what was just said. It’s problems like this that disengage us from life and prevent us from functioning at our full capacity.
Step 1: Close your eyes
Step 2: Take in a deep breath and exhale fully
Step 3: Focus on your breathing without adjusting your rhythm. This should not require any effort on your part
Step 4: Count down from five…Five…four…
Step 5: As you begin to count down, see your breath expand into your belly. Three…Two…
Step 6: When you reach the end of your countdown, bring your full awareness down to the bottom of your belly. All of your attention focus on your breath and awareness should be on the bottom of your stomach as soon as you reach One.
Step 7: Open your eyes
Step 8: Keep your attention on your lower belly when you are communicating with someone, when you are working on something important or when you find that your mental chatter won’t stop.
Step 9: Practice this as often as you can.
I would encourage you to try this when you are with someone else so that you can see just how altered your engagement experience is.
