Biohacking to Find Your Super Power

Biohacking to Find Your Super Power

Who ever would have thought this would be a title coming from my crazy ass? Have mercy where has V gone?

Honestly I do not even recognize myself. The person I am today I am just meeting. In real time I kid you not! Fear of MS does not drive my life & this alone is a huge ass change.

The joy of living drives my life.

I am a super power & super hero all day every day. I am pretty sure you already knew that.

  • How did I get here?
  • How did I become a miracle?
  • How do I find my inner hero?

These are all questions I ask myself every day. Recently I discovered the word for it:

Biohacking

I never really understood what biohacking was until I realized I was a 'biohacker'.

Biohacking influences the body using mental, physical, nutritional and electronic techniques focused on longevity and optimal daily life performance. All touted to offer significant improvements in quality of life, relationships and overall health.

Dave Asprey, founder of Bulletproof coffee, is probably the most significant and well known biohacker there is. For the last year I lived at his Bulletproof cafe in Santa Monica among this growing community.

We shared conscious thoughts around biohacking our lives as an individual & a collective.

This was the 1st time I really understood what biohacking was & how perfectly that described my miracle life. I too was a biohacker.

You see the miracle of me surrounds the marriage of optimal living with the needs of my body. All of this accomplished by focused, conscious living for optimal outcome using all the influences described above.

Balance, attention & extreme forward focus produces the miracle known as PaleoBOSS Lady.

I am no Dave Asprey & learn constantly from his journey. His work like that of Dr. Wahls help to fuel my journey. Inspired by Dave's "Beginners Guide to Biohacking" I share with all of you my version. My hope is that it will help inspire how you can begin "biohacking" your life by sharing some ways I have been successful. Just as Dave Asprey & the entire Bulletproof community have inspired me.

Biohacking Your Super Power

Mobility: Movement & posture are huge aspects of my hacked life. Having MS posture is often hard for me to maintain due to body fatigue & resulting in very poor posture. The more inflammation leaves my body the easier it is to 'hold myself up' & work on proper posture. However simple steps can be taken to enhance your posture even when life makes it challenging. Focused efforts on posture critical & I recommend checking out Jill Miller's book The Roll Model for get steps to improve posture. Check out my story in the book too.

Movement for this miracle happens on the yoga mat & walking the neighborhood.

6 days a week you can find me on the mat for about 1.5 hours & every day walking miles. As life has evolved in my biohacked lens movement has been the biggest evolution based on body/mind feedback. Check out one of my most read blog posts about this here.

Nutrition:  Focus of consciousness regarding food the catalyst to my miracle status and my #1 biohacking tool.

My kitchen looks nothing like it did even 2 years ago and I have been conscious for over 5. 

Biohacking involves continued evolution for optimal outcomes with a focus on living healthier. This means food is not a measured merely as a pleasure source which was the only lens I had for over 50+ years. The biohacker in me continues to grow the evolution of my relationship with food which continues to result in drastic changes.

Nature: The role the outdoors plays in wellness is so huge it alone needs to be a blog. From grounding to vitamin D we all need to get outside. Take a walk, dance in the rain naked, put your feet in the sand & damn it stop to smell the roses. All critical elements for the biohacker in all of us.

Ride the Wave: Getting uncomfortable is an art form and crucial element to successful biohacking. This my friends continues to be the hardest of all for me yet produces HUGE benefits each time I create the space to just ride shit out. I do believe progress is happening & that lets me know time with focused effort this hack can become a huge asset in my "Bag of Tricks."

Mindfulness: Meditation is a powerful tool that sits in every biohackers ‘Bag of Tricks.” The moral of the story is meditation can be incorporated into daily life. This tool so important with the value it offers each of us should dedicate time to figuring out what this might look like in daily life.

Jump up, dance or sit like a pretzel who cares just figure out a way for you to stop life for a moment in time and just be.

The Narrative: The dialogue between the ears matters. Identifying your current narrative regarding life & living involves asking the question while answering with honesty.

  • Why do you wake at this time everyday?
  • Why do you set an alarm?
  • Why do you eat 3 meals a day?
  • Does you body live optimally with these choices?
  • Do you even know?

Time to start chatting with your bad self is the moral of the story here.

Gratitude: The art of being grateful from a scientific lens is proven to have amazing outcomes for all of us. It seems in our consumer driven world instant gratification more the status quo. Time to really check your lens to see where you. The ultimate goal is to always be working toward gratitude in all things the optimal outcome. I personally live with gratitude for breath.

Get Lost: Music, gardening, dancing & conscious/unconscious activities like this can create the space needed for super power magic to happen. Getting lost in a mindless space a necessary tool to successful outcomes yet difficult to achieve with the current spontaneous way we live today.

What is “Consciousness in Culture?

We all live an autopilot existence living the same routines day to day both personally and professionally. Consciousness in culture breaks down routine & creates a lifestyle that marries our own personal biology with optimal living. Biohacking our lives are the core foundations of consciousness aka Super Powers!

I recently wrote to my good friend, hero & mentor, Dr. Terry Wahls, that I feel like a living Wonder Woman with the amount of healing I have had over these 5 years with it continuing to grow. The longer I biohack my way through life the larger the gains in quality of living I experience. You would think there would be an end, but as of yet there is no end in sight!

Who knows maybe I will cure myself of MS some day. Biohacking every second.

Ecuador Here I come!

IMG_5788.jpg

By: V Capaldi Have you ever believed you can live life following your dreams?

Ever thought of work not being defined as 'work' and instead defined as  'living'?

What would that look like if you did?

Take a moment and really allow yourself to think about what if you simply lived your best life everyday. 

What if your day was not defined as going to work, school or days off?  What if you day was dedicated to living and reaching for higher purpose?  How would that differ from where you are right now? What potential outcome could be had if this happened?

11902491_10154147669536686_4698926567294099531_n (1)

In 2015 this became the reality for PaleoBOSS Lady®.  I decided that if I was going to continue to thrive and kick MS to the curb every day I needed to live a life dedicated to higher purpose. Without it MS manages to take control and the game of higher purpose ends.   Since consciously dedicating myself to this self imposed mandate life has elevated my game so much and reaching my higher purpose a daily life reality.  This year alone I have WON over a dozen contests and this from someone who never won anything and seldom enters anything.  Yet somehow several times a month in 2015 I have been declared a winner!

Recently I was approached by a sustainable farming company in Ecuador to tour their facilities and learn about small-scale organic farming that supports conservation, fair trade, environmental leadership and native planting.  They have invited a dozen members in the conscious living movement to learn more about red palm oil.  For the last several years red palm oil from other countries has created quite a stir due to deforestation of rain forests and the non-practice of sustainable farming.  Going to Ecuador is to help educate the community about the value of red palm oil in our diet and also to witness 1st hand producers that are respecting  environment and culture.

If this is not a manifestation of higher purpose than what is?

To be 1 of 12 folks internationally hand picked to tour and share this learning experience is a dream come true for this conscious living lady and an example of manifesting my life dreams and higher purpose realized. Every day my life confirms with signs such as this invite that my mission is on track with higher purpose leading the way.

Wonder how to get some of this goodness into your life?  Confused about how to begin living a life driven by higher purpose?  If so Team PBL has you covered!

Raise the Roof on YOU

By: V Capaldi Ever wonder how to live your dreams?

What are your dreams?

When was the last time you consciously focused on making your life dreams come true?

The sad truth is that many of us wake up one day and realize we somehow stopped dreaming and are simply living.

Don’t get me wrong … I believe all of us want to live out our dreams and connect to our higher purpose!! Yet most of us find ourselves living life on autopilot and settling for a life that’s less than what we dream we could have.

Take a minute to pause…  For one minute allow yourself to stop and think about your life.  One conscious minute... What do you see? Are you living the best life you could imagine?

11817205_1075750359124065_630424009239327728_n

Now take it a step further… If you do live your best life, what would that look like right now? How about in 5 years? 10 years?

What changes do you need to make in order to reach your best life?

If you believe that you still have some steps to take to get there then it’s time to shake things up a bit! 

Living your best life doesn’t happen overnight… but not that hard!  It just takes some self-awareness, focus, and a passion for possibility!  These questions are the first steps in your shift.

If you’re interested in having some guidance on your path to living life out loud… you’re in luck!  I’m starting a 7 part web class series in October that will guide you through the steps to realizing your higher purpose and raising the roof on this life.

Oh, It’s gonna get wild!! We’re gonna laugh a lot!!  We may dance… I’m not gonna lie.  And we’re going to do some soul searching. 

This webinar series is all about creating space to live a life focused on higher purpose with conscious awareness.  We will focus on ways to get “unstuck” in your daily routine, and fill your “Bag of Tricks” with simple tools to turn your volume way UP!

Say goodbye to living and hello to thriving!
