Biohacking is the new word for tweaking your lifestyle to get healthier.

Think of it this way – if your body is a system, then inputs – food, exercise and stress management – can be altered slightly to improve outputs – energy, mood and health.

Better still, even on small hack can have benefits to the system as a whole.

Every day biohacks might include adding a fresh juice to your diet, or installing an app on your smart phone that tracks your sleep.

And look out for other science-driven biohacking such as myDNA, a genetic test that tells you what impact food, alcohol, exercise, medication and smoking and caffeine has on you as an individual. It’s easy to access and affordable.
