Sleep Monitoring: Apps like Sleep Cycle let us track our sleep patterns so that the jarring alarm does not go off when we are in deep sleep or are dreaming, but during light sleep.

With record-high instances of depression, anxiety, and substance abuse in the United States, and likely elsewhere, we still think antidepressants can be used to relieve some of the damage.

Biohacking: A Primer

Biohacking manipulates one’s brain and body to ‘hack’ it, outside the realm of mainstream science and medicine.

Biohacking, or doing biological activities on oneself, is a broad term and covers stuff like performing ‘Young Blood Transfusion’ or tracking one’s sleep patterns. It took wings from Silicon Valley, where people started broadcasting their intermittent fasting, crazy diets, DNA injecting and the popular dopamine fasting.
