Here are some of the things I’ve discovered for you, enjoyed, pondered, done …
Light in your ear …
A topic I’m quite interested in at the moment is light therapy. It’s something with a huge potential that – in my humble opinion – is not researched enough.
So coming back from the US, as recommended by my biohacking friends, I had gotten myself a Valkee Human Charger to easier beat jetlag … and adapt my circadian rhythm, put me in a good mood, …
The device looks just like an iPod but instead of music the earbuds actually shine light into your ears.
Even though a few years ago, earlier versions of the device got quite a beating claiming that there is not enough scientific proof that it actually works, the latest feedback on Amazon tends to be rather positive.
Did it work for me?
With all the things I’ve been doing to beat jetlag I cannot be sure how much it contributed to feeling great and not suffering from jetlag at all. For now, I keep using it every morning.
Freezing my butt off …
… for more health, beauty & a longer life. As you know, I like testing things out to biofinesse (our feminine way of biohacking) my life.
After taking cold showers outside since last summer I was really keen on testing cryotherapy. It’s basically like being in a big freezer, a very cold one. The lowest temperature we got on Tuesday was -85ºC or -121ºF. OMG, I felt so good afterwards. Check out some photos on my Twitter.
A dessert I love making …
… is Coconut-Blueberry Creamy Panna Cotta (you find Dave Asprey’s recipe for it here … and a whole lot more delicious recipes in his Bulletproof Cookbook. It’s keto, super easy, super quick, very healthy, and really delicious.
A book I received …
When I was in San Francisco I visited a friend, Hedda Adler. This lady is 70 … and in all honesty, she looks better than most 50 year olds do and has energy and moves like a 30 year young. Amazing!
In addition to a facial that still lets my face glow, she also gave me her book Ageless: 5 Keys to a Miraculous Life at Any Age. It’s an absolute must read. This lady knows what she is talking about! …
Oh, and the picture on the cover is her … months ago … NOT photoshopped. Check it out!
Quote I’m reflecting on …
The greatest wealth is health
