Mindfulness or non-stimulatory thinking

  • You spend 10–20 minutes daily training with it and it significantly improves your stress management — you will be one cool cat. It’s one of the few pieces of Biohacking tech that has good human research demonstrating its helpful effect.
  • I’d been meditating for several months prior to starting to use the emWave2 and it taught me what it feels like to be in a coherent meditative state.
  • It’s also the only Biohacking device I’d buy, all the rest I’m a bit skeptical of for one reason or another.
  • emWave tech costs between $100 — $200.

The Sleep Deficit Protocol

  • Get up early. For one reason or another, you wake up early and underslept, instead of hitting snooze or sleeping in or trying to take a nap later just get up and get going. You’ll experience a pleasant boost of motivation which you can use to get more done that morning than you sometimes do all day.
  • Cold shower. 60–120 seconds of cold water blasting you in the face first thing, will get your adrenaline and cortisol flowing. You won’t be tired for hours.
