Chris Dancy, the world’s most connected man, measures everything possible to measure - from the more common things like activity and sleep, to what’s happening in your body by swallowing smart pills collecting data internally, to tracking your surroundings like temperature. He puts all the data in a super diary and uses that to become more aware and seeing how everything connects.
A lot of problems we see today comes from the over-connectedness in our digital life, Chris says. By measuring we get an evolved understanding of both time and behavior.
Many of us walk around feeling like crap while having no idea of why. When you track everything, you can start analyzing and gain a better understanding of cause and effect. The next step is to make predictions of what will happen in the future, and pre-condition your environment to make it better. One example of prediction is when you need to leave to get to a place at a certain time.
With that as a simple case, consider how we can use all the data we put in and make predictions for how to live our optimal life and maximizing our health in all aspects? What will that future look like?
In another session, we dove into the latest development in health technology with Ivan Rusilko, medical doctor and anti-aging expert, and Mouna Esmaeilzadeh, medical doctor, neuroscientist, and founder SciLife Clinic.
Ivan manages a boutique medical clinic in Miami, where he specializes in creating healthy lifestyles that support longevity and improved the overall quality of life through medically supervised and customized diagnostic and treatment programs. It could be injections of hormones and vitamins, or changing nutrition. His objective is to take everything we know from modern medicine and use to make people feel great. The most common reason his clients show up is to improve their sex life – when that improves, everything else in your life improves as well.
Ivan points out that while it might sound like taking shortcuts, why not upgrade yourself when you have the opportunity and tools to feel better? We upgrade everything, so why not invest in ourselves?
But there are plenty of things you can to improve your health and live a longer life, even without technology. Mouna gives the following advice on how to improve your health.
What all of them touches on is being aware of what you can do, set goals and adjust your life based on what you learn about yourself. As Ivan ended with: Never strive to be normal – strive to be extraordinary. Everyone has the capacity.
