PS: We managed to weed through the internet’s most snake-oily and harmful detoxes and whittle down the biohacking strategies that actually work.
Unfortunately, when a message is received many times, we often ignore it as unimportant. If all the memes and reels touting the benefits of water have become background noise, it is time to stop and listen. This is a foundational biohack.
Why it matters: Surprise—the guys walking around with gallon water jugs and girls with their Stanley cups are on to something. Drinking water is vital for our 80% water-filled body. Hydrating helps detox, regulate temperature, lubricate joints, transport nutrients, and maintain blood pressure. It also stabilizes our appetite because we often think we are hungry when we are thirsty. By quenching our body’s water needs, it can signal us correctly. Health.com says drinking enough water can boost metabolism, prevent headaches, improve mood, and enhance skin.
Pro tip: Can’t stomach plain water, and the fruit isn’t enough? We like Mio because it’s cheap and easy.
Who doesn’t want to make their home feel like a spa? If you have been to a first-class spa recently, most likely, a cold plunge has been installed near the sauna and steam room.
Integrating ice baths and sauna sessions into your routine increases dopamine levels, reduces muscle soreness, and improves sleep performance and recovery.
We long for our couch or bed when we come home from a long day. Our body signals us to rest by releasing hormones that make us sleepy. But there’s a better way to boost our energy than coffee. Here’s how: alternate between the cold, a pause to reach room temperature, the heat, and repeat. Suddenly, there’s more time in the day, and you’ll be amazed by how invigorated and alert you’ll feel—just like magic.
Pro tip: Most commercial gyms have saunas, and if there is no cold plunge, cold showers are perfect for all the above.
If you have a sedentary job or not.
Why it matters: Moving your body improves blood flow, stimulates the lymphatic system, and releases endorphins. Endorphins make you feel good, reduce pain, and lower stress. Moving your body also boosts your mood, self-esteem, and cognitive function.
What to do: Choose any movement that suits you. It is best to incorporate things that present themselves throughout the day so it doesn’t feel like a chore. Once a week, take time out to get outside and spend an hour doing something you enjoy or take you back to childhood, like getting on a bike, swimming, shooting hoops, or even hula hoops! Your goal is to increase your heart rate and oxygen intake.
How it helps: Moving your body improves your detox and health. You can also find simple and fun ways to move your body in 2024, such as:
You don’t have to be Dwyane Johnson to feel the positive effects of a good workout.
Why it matters: Building muscle enhances your body’s capacity to burn fat by increasing your resting metabolism (this means the effects of resistance training last all day long, as opposed to that one hour on the treadmill, which has little long-term effect), leading to improved strength, posture, and various other fitness benefits. Whether you’re an avid runner or cyclist, incorporating weights into your routine is crucial for a well-rounded, slim, and sexy body.
What to do: Three 45-minute weekly sessions are plenty to grow and maintain lean body mass. Consider progressive overload by adjusting weights or reps if you’re already lifting in each session. This strategy prevents plateaus and ensures continued growth in your strength and fitness levels. Our body is amazing at adapting, but we want to evolve, so we must keep changing the game.
Pro tip: The hardest part is simply showing up! Scared of the gym? Work out in the comfort of your bedroom or the beauty of the outdoors with all the free online videos and online trainers. None of us have an excuse. Some people find that hiring a trainer relieves the stress of being in the gym.
Your body is like a car; feed it the wrong gasoline, and you’ll be sputtering and stalling on the road of life—with an exuberant bill from the mechanic.
Why it matters: Your food choices matter. A nourishing diet supports detox and enhances your immune system, digestion, energy levels, and mood.
