We see biohacking as the opportunity to elevate life to a higher degree...
Here's some recent perspectives from around the web on how biohacking can help improve focus, memory and overall mental state.
Biohacking represents the optimisation of your biology. This is usually done through lifestyle modifications, either with technologies or simple activities, which enhance fundamental aspects such as energy, sleep or memory.
Many activities that are considered biohacking are easily pursued without much or any investment at all – they’re very much a ‘mind over matter’ thing – or only require relatively little investment.
That’s what makes biohacking such an appealing movement: it’s about democratising wellness and taking a more holistic approach to human health.

The ability to maintain focus for a sustained period of time is one of the goals of many biohackers. Achieving that flow state. This is as much about blocking out distractions as it is about maintaining a keen interest in the task at hand.
A study found that scrolling through Instagram during the short story significantly decreased memory recall compared to the control group, and it non significantly decreased memory compared to the group that used Instagram after each short story.The type of content displayed on the participants’ feeds didn't affect their results.
The authors reviewed other literature indicating that multitasking — in and of itself — can impair memory and learning. Thus, it's possible that it wasn't social media that caused impaired learning but rather the presence of an additional stimulus.
Furthermore, active participation was correlated with a more positive mood, while passive scrolling is associated with depressive symptoms.
