Biohacking : Improving Sleep, Fitness and Time Management with MementoLabs
MementoLabs is allowing users to sign up for early access to their quantified self tool. This platform is of particular interest to biohackers since it can easily suck in data from popular tracking devices and apps. The developers at MementoLabs recommend and make of use of the best fitness trackers and apps on the market. Specifically The Oura Ring (sleep, movement, recovery) and RescueTime (time management) although many other popular devices and apps will also supported.
There are various examples of insights from sleep, exercise and productivity experiments starting to emerge from the development team at MementoLabs.
More Sleep vs. Focus
Group Experiment Examples : Magnesium Dosing, Meditate, No Electrolytes Before Bed
Workouts vs Sleep
Sleep Improvements with Trending Sleep Hacks
This is Jason Jin’s (a developer w/ MementoLabs) sleep hacks for a 3 month window. Note how deep sleep has improved by almost an hour which is huge when tracking with the Oura Ring. Here is what he did during this period.
Strategies I’ve adopted:
– HIIT 2-3 times a week
– Meditation before bed
– No late coffee & tea
– Intermittent fasting (restricted eating window)
– No late exercise
– Reduced blue light on screens (Grayscale + f.lux)
– Vitamin D (especially on Cloudy/Rainy days)
– Magnesium (500mg every night)
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
