Peak performance has become a buzzword these days, as anyone from high end athletes to CEO’s can tell you. We modify our intake of food, substances or supplements, and implement other practices that we hope will lead to an increase in our work productivity, or possibly trim a few swings off our golf game.
Biohacking is a newer term just gaining popularity among high performance athletes and anyone wishing to optimize their life. It involves adopting life hacks to increase performance, boost the immune system, sleep better, or eat a more beneficial diet. Optimizing brain function through more efficient sleep, better diet or even adding meditation is one of the primary focuses of biohacking- it’s understood that the brain is the master switch.
Biohackers often use technology to measure their efforts- wearable devices that feed their biological data back to them. Neurofeedback uses wearable EEG technology to feed back brain wave data to the user in real time.
Neurofeedback brain training is a brain-based method for achieving peak performance- changes in the brain can translate to changes in mental and physical performance.
