In today’s video I share with you the 4 lifestyle hacks that I’ve discovered over the past year that’s helped me heal myself.
Before implementing these changes, I would notice that there would be a persistent state of lethargy, brain fog, consistently getting ill & injured.
This was a difficult way to live life.
So I sought out different yogic & biohacking mechanisms to help me level up my health.
These changes have profoundly changed my life, and my hope is that it will change yours too.
So here’s what I discuss:

And by the end of this video, you’re going to learn how to implement these hacks that have helped me personally, and how to implement it so that you not only heal yourself, but you become much healthier live life with much more ease, and also find that working and doing what you need to do actually becomes exciting every single day. So please stick around until the very end of this video, because this is something that is very, very minute, very small and tiny, but the changes that it makes to the quality of your life is very significant. Okay.
In this video into quickly announced that I made a brand new bootcamp for you. If you scroll down into the comment section below, you’ll find a pin comment that contains the bootcamp video, as well as exclusive access to our email list, where I can share stuff that I can’t really share on the channel. So without further delay, let’s go right ahead and get started. So in this video, I want to talk about how to heal yourself. And what I’ve recently discovered is that in the past, I used to get injured quite a lot. You know, back when I was working out, uh, I would go to the gym, I would hit these weights and I would try to lift heavy, but I would just end up injuring myself and I would just suffer through injury. Like every two to three months I would have this crazy back pain and I just couldn’t heal it.
And I couldn’t even walk. And I would have to take long periods of breaks just to recover and heal. And I also had this like big risk problem that I just couldn’t heal myself from for months and months. Right. It was like over seven or eight months, I had this risk problem from this one time that I injured myself. And what I started to see was that back then I injured myself quite frequently. But on top of that, I used to get the common cold, quite a lot. My immunity was very, very bad too. So I started to question why this was, and I started to get deeper into understanding a biohacking, understanding ancient yoga cultures and why they ate the way they did and they exercise the way they did. And I’ve recently come to this realization of four different things that one must do in order to optimize their life to the absolute best.
Additionally, on top of that, I realized that I used, I had this crazy brain fog and I couldn’t work and think deeply, you know, um, most of my work was shallow work where I would just either post stuff on social media and do marketing, but I couldn’t really think properly to be able to produce something of quality. Right. Once I implemented these changes, my life just went to an absolute new level. You know, I was more excited to work every single day. I was excited to show up to work. I was excited to live my life. I didn’t have this brain fog that was haunting me. And I always felt like there was this eats. I always feel like there’s this Eastern life right now. And I can just move through it swiftly without feeling so much friction without having to force myself to do things.
Okay. And I want this to be possible for you as well. So I’ve come up with four different lifestyle that it’s, that are going to help you. Okay. So let’s go right ahead and get started with those. The number one biggest thing is obviously food, right? So let’s talk about that food. So what most people get wrong with food is they just eat anything, right? They just eat stuff that they’ve been eating without any consideration of how it makes them feel. What I first started to realize was that after having a meal, I would get bloated. And then I would have to take 30 minutes to an hour to just digest that meal until I could start feeling better to start working again. And I thought that was normal. You know, I was like, oh, you know, when you eat, you’re supposed to get tired.
That’s normal, but it’s not normal. It might slow you down a little bit. But if you eat the right food and if you eat the right amount, you should be good to go just after you eat. You don’t need to take a nap after you eat, you don’t need to like lie down off to eat or we’ll do it. Like just be idle. You can go straight to work if you’re reading the right food. So that made me go on a search for the right kinds of foods to eat. And then what I realized was you should understand your own gut microbiome, and what’s good for you, and what’s not good for you. And I took this test called the Viome test. I would recommend it for anyone. Um, it’s a couple hundred bucks, but what it does is you have to give them a sample of your blood and your stool.
And when you give it to them, the laboratory processes it and they send you back the results and it tells you what foods will be good for you and why it will be good for you and what foods will be bad for you and why that would be bad for you. What I discovered was I should avoid based on my gut microbiome, I should avoid tomatoes because I had this virus in my gut microbiome called the tomato, forgive froggy virus, forgiveness virus is something. And it basically says, this is my, my gut has this virus that makes tomatoes toxic. So I’m not fully sure on the science here, but I just listened to it. And I tried it and it works. Right? So there’s, that app gives you a detailed description on what to avoid and why the other thing was histamines. And this was a huge one for me, because I would see that I love to eat sour cream, but my body doesn’t process it.
Well, my digestive system doesn’t process it well. So sour creams, heavy creams, or any sort of dairy will contain some histamine, but things that are more fermented like yogurt and sour cream are higher in histamine. And when I ate things that have histamine in it, it was bad for me. And it would make me bloated instantly. I would instantly get bloated and I would like not be able to work it out and have this crazy brain fog ever since I got rid of sour creams and yogurts, I started to feel a lot better. Right. So then I’ve started to realize why I felt like after eating Chipotle it’s because I would always get it with sour cream. Right? So avoiding histamines was a huge one for me. And the other thing that I had to avoid was anything that’s inflammatory kind of like, uh, red meat.
So if I, a lot of beef, it would immediately slow me down. When I started to eliminate beef, I started to recover from injury a lot quicker, how I realized this was one month, my wife and I decided to go vegan. And for that whole month, we didn’t eat anything with meat or dairy, right? No animal products at all. And that month I started to all of my past injuries that kept plaguing me all of a sudden disappeared for just that one month that I decided to go vegan. But I realized that that wasn’t sustainable because after the month my health started to deteriorate. So after that I went semi vegetarian. So I would eat chicken and occasionally red meat, but not too much of it. Right? So now my diet is avoiding these things and eating mostly chicken and vegetables and
Speaker 2 (07:13):
Fruits, right? So those are
The big things that I figured out. The other thing that this test tells you is what would be super foods for you. And what I realized was things that would support my individual unique gut microbiome, uh, apple cider vinegar, which I take a tablespoon two tablespoons of every night before bed. And that really helps you sleep like a baby, by the way, uh, bananas and avocados. These, these are good for my unique gut microbiome. So in that sense, this test was very valuable to me. And whenever I started eating these and avoiding these, I started to feel a lot, lot better. And the other thing I started to avoid was sugar. When I cut down sugar, I started to feel a lot better. And the other thing you can include in your diet are basal seeds. After after meal, this is what helped me digest better.
And also honey, totally clarified butter. Yeah, I know this is a lot, but these honey and clarified butter are yoga. Superfoods. These are set Vic foods, which really support your digestive system and allow your, this clarified butter. It allows your joints to get more lubrication and helps your digestion. Honey is just naturally a superfood. Like it has so many benefits. You can even Google it. I can’t tell you a lot of them off the top of my head, but a big thing honey does is if you take it at night before bed, it will help your liver. Uh, keep it stores of, I don’t know what it is. It’s like a form of sugar. But the reason that I used to, what would happen to me is if I would eat sugar before bed, I would wake up at 3:00 AM, just wide awake. When I started eating honey and avoiding sugar before bed, that never happened anymore.
I was in wide awake at 3:00 AM. I could just go back to sleep, right? So these were super foods for me, apple cider vinegar, bananas, avocados, Bazell seeds, honey, and clarified butter. I’m pretty sure apple cider vinegar, Bazell seeds, honey, and clarified butter would be superfoods for anyone, but especially for my gut microbiome, bananas and avocados were key. And I ha how I found this was through the Viome test. So the key is to avoid and understand what things are harmful to you and do more of what things are super food, super foods for you. Right? And that’s what I realized with food. When I started to do those, my inflammation went down. I started to feel better. I started to not get injured and I could function and perform better. Right? So that’s number one.
Speaker 2 (09:59):
Key, big thing is exercise. Okay. Now, most people don’t understand the importance of it. And what I realized was I thought I was exercising well, right? I thought I was healthy. I was go to the gym three times a week, but the days I didn’t go to work out, I was completely idle. And when I was completely idle and I was just sitting in front of the computer, just working and my body didn’t get any physical activity at all. I couldn’t fall asleep at night, even though my brain was tired, I was brain dead. My body was alive, right? So when I started to implement daily exercise, some form of daily exercise, excuse me, I started to feel a lot better.
Speaker 2 (10:43):
The key I understood was you should at least get 20 minutes of exercise every day, 20 minutes every day. And at least two days of intense exercise, whether this be heavy lifting or cardio, this was the sweet spot for me getting to at least 20 minutes of exercise every day. And having two days in the week where you spend an hour, an hour and a half doing intense exercise. If you do this, your body starts to get used more. And in the days that you don’t do intense exercise, you can recover. So what I recommend is every single morning, just going out and getting a quick workout in whether this be for a quick walk or anything else. So every morning I take a quick 20 minute walk on top of that. I’m going to put this in exercise. That’s physical exercise, mental exercise involves meditation, daily meditation or yoga.
And obviously, you know what the importance of this is when I started to meditate mentally, I would have this state of equanimity and calmness, which I could bring about in my day to day actions. And my judgment. Wouldn’t be clouded by all of the ruckus that was going on. So all of those things get eating. The right kinds of foods will immediately help you mentally feel better to the mind. Body is connected, right? They, they perform, they feed into each other. If the body is stressed, the mind is going to be stressed that the mind stress, the body is going to be stressed. So these three things in terms of exercise were very, very key for me.
And why they will keep from me was your body needs physical activity. If you don’t give it physical activity at nighttime, you won’t be able to fall asleep, even though your brain is dead. Because nowadays we have a lot of sedentary jobs, right? Like most of our work is isn’t physically taxing. It’s mostly online on a computer doing some spreadsheets or something. But if you don’t combine that with physical exercise, your mind might be, get getting tired. Um, but your body is not. And if your body isn’t tied, you won’t be able to sleep no matter how hard you try. So this is the absolute minimum you must do in order to live a healthy lifestyle. That’s number two. Number three is probably one of the most important ones of all. And this is sleep. And boy is this underrated sleep is probably the most important thing you can do.
And most people don’t sleep enough for their needs and why they don’t sleep enough of their needs is because they’ve heard somewhere that they’ve got to sleep a certain amount of hours, which is complete BS, right? People tell you that you’ve got to sleep. You know, at least seven hours a night or nine hours or eight hours a night. I don’t know the studies on this. There’s different people saying different things. Some are saying that, oh, you can sleep six hours a night and something, they can sleep six hours a night. It’s very individual and very unique. What I figured out was I need to sleep as much as I need to sleep in order to feel well rested the next day. Okay. So what I started doing was I stopped setting it up. Alarm stopped sending along. So I don’t have an alarm clock.
I simply wake up when the body is fully rested and I like to go to bed early. So it will happen that some days I will sleep as little as seven hours, I’ll be in bed for seven hours, seven and a half hours. And on other days I will sleep as much as nine hours. So my balance is somewhere from seven to nine hours. If I get less than this, I function less optimally. If I get more than this, I get to grubby. Right? And usually I won’t get more than that unless I’m forcing myself to, because I think I need more sleep and I’m not listening to the body. Just like with food people, don’t listen to their bodies. If a meal makes you feel like, you should, what about that? Neo makes you feel like, right? Just like that with sleep. If you don’t feel you’ve slept well enough, then you need to investigate why, what impacted it may be something you’ve eaten
Speaker 2 (15:05):
Or maybe your
Brain was on high alert and you haven’t calmed it down before going to bed. So for me, somewhere between seven to nine hours helps. And usually I sleep nine hours after I’ve had intense exercise the day before intense activity. And I sleep seven when I don’t need that much sleep. So the key thing I did was again, stop setting an alarm. Please don’t set an alarm because you’re shocking your body into waking up. Instead of training it to wake up, instead of training your circadian rhythm to wake up, there’s four different phases of sleep, four phases.
We have the three stages of non REM and one rent. And what happens is your REM sleep helps your brain to get smarter. And the non REM sleep helps your body to recover. So in non-REM there’s one deep sleep and two stages of light sleep. Okay. And in REM there’s just REMS. So there’s light plus deep. And how I realized this was through reading this book. I’ll probably attach the link to this below. There’s a great book on this. I think his name is Matthew Walker and it’s called why we sleep and also tracking my sleep through a ring called the aura ring. There’s another tool for you, the Viome test and the ordering are important to us for you in your arsenal to mastery. When I track my sleep in the ordering, I can tell that there are different sleep phases. They, they tell me that there’s a light sleep and deep sleep and REM sleep.
You want to make sure that your deep and your rim are good. That means your brain and your body is recovering really well. And the light sleep will naturally come. And usually I get around two hours of deep sleep every night and around an hour and 15 hour and 20 of rim. For some reason, I didn’t get a lot of REM sleep. I don’t know if it’s the ring, the ring isn’t a hundred percent accurate, so I don’t fully trust it. Uh, I only use it to get myself into a consistent routine and then I ditch it. So there’s four phases of sleep. Use the ordering seven to nine hours is something that works for me. The other key thing with sleep is start going to bed earlier. If you have to wake up early and you want to train yourself to wake up earlier, start going to bed earlier.
So I used to go to bed at 11. Then I started to go to bed at 10 and now sometimes I’ll even go to bed at nine 30. Right? So I’ve trained my circadian rhythm. So you have what’s called as the circadian rhythm and your circadian rhythm is essentially what tells your body now is the time to sleep. And now’s the time to wake up. So I’ve trained my circadian rhythm to be accustomed, to sleeping from 10 to seven or 11 to seven, right? So I can go to bed easily at 9, 10, 11, and I can wake up. I just naturally wake up at around 7, 7 30. And even if I go to bed at two or 3:00 AM, I’ll still wake up at seven. Even if I go to bed at 5:00 AM, I’ll still wake up at seven it’s because I’ve trained my circadian rhythm like that.
It just constantly past that time anymore. Unless I retrain it. If I were to go to a different time zone, right? So you want to train your circadian rhythm and keep this consistency, even on weekends, to the best of your ability, don’t let partying and going out ruin your circadian rhythm. So these are the kids sleep. And the last thing is environment environment. Now, what do I mean by this, these days, living in apartment complexes, it’s difficult to surround yourself with nature, surround self in nature. Your body naturally gets comma and is fed with negative ions when you are in a natural model. So if you have like a waterfall near your, uh, area, go to it, it releases a lot of negative ions, which are very good for you. Uh, surround yourself in nature with plants, keep plenty of plants in your house. Uh, if you don’t have them already would definitely encourage getting them. And at least once a day, go out into the forest or to a park or something and take a walk there that’ll be super helpful. Surround yourself in nature.
Uh, the next thing get at least 15 minutes of direct sunlight every day, get 15 minutes of sunlight. I don’t know if my writing is wonky. So get at least 15 minutes. So what I’d like to do is in the morning around eight to 9:00 AM, I got to go outside and stand outside with as minimal clothing as possible, exposing my whole body, my, all my skin to natural sunlight for at least 15 minutes every day. Uh, what this does to you is because in the mornings you need that blue light, right? You need the blue light to kind of wake you up and you’ll feel much more alive, much more awake. If you’re male, your testosterone will go up. Everything will be well-regulated. If you’ve got at least 15 minutes of sunlight every day, and this is the bare minimum, you know, you want to get much more than that. It’s good for vitamin D too.
Speaker 2 (20:50):
The other thing I realized is you
Can’t take vitamin D pills. If you’re living somewhere that doesn’t have enough sunlight, a vitamin D pill might be a good supplement, but what it doesn’t do is it can’t replicate the sunlight because there’s another form of vitamin D that sunlight can give you. And it’s when the UV Ray hits your skin. It stimulates the production of vitamin D in the sulfate form, which pills can’t do. So what I started to do in winter, when I started to go back home in New York was I used a tanning bed and I’ve started to feel much better and much happier when I used a tanning bed. And I would just go like twice a week and do 10 minutes, five to 10 minutes sessions. And I would feel much better. I would be sleeping much better as well after I did that. So I would definitely, definitely recommend that.
Uh, if you that’s just what I did by the way, you don’t have to do it. You can do it. If you want to optimize your performance, you can test it out for yourself. But if you live somewhere where there’s a lot of sun, I would definitely get 15 minutes of sunlight. That little bit of UV is actually good for you. There’s two types of UV there’s UVA, which is the one that gives you the 10 on your skin and UVB, which is what we’ll produce vitamin D and sulfate form. So this is what it does, VIT D in sulfate
Speaker 2 (22:16):
And the other thing is avoid blue light in the evenings, avoid blue light and evenings. What do I mean by that? If you look at sunlight, it has a certain amount of blue light. You know, there’s all different spectrums of it. Blue light is the highest and closest to the UV spectrum because it has the highest frequency. Okay? So in the evenings, you want to avoid blue light because blue light tells your body to not produce melatonin. So when you have a lot of blue light in the evenings, your body’s going to stop producing melatonin is going to wake you up. The led lights that you have in your house produce a lot of blue light, and it kind of wakes you up the screens that you surround yourself with. It wakes you up. So what I like to do is two hours before bed.
I like to cut out all sorts of blue light, and I wear these glasses called true docks. If you’ve seen these here. So these glasses have red lenses and they just color out all blue light. They’re called true doc, true doc classes. I just want two hours before bed. If you can’t replace the led lights with filament bulbs in your house, uh, get these glasses they’re helpful. And when I did that, I would fall asleep much easier. Okay. So those are the four things I would recommend. Obviously there’s a lot of depth to this that I can’t really cover here in this one video, uh, probably stuff I don’t have at the top of my head right now, but I wanted to leave you with general stuff. That’s going to help you optimize your performance and take it to the next level. This is a journey I’ve been on for the past six, seven months.
And it’s helped me live a much better life. Society and times are changing nowadays. And you’ve got to find ways to keep yourself, uh, natural and keep yourself the way nature intended. Right? So with that, I conclude this video. Thank you so much for watching. I do hope this was helpful for you. Let’s do a quick recap today. We talked about how to heal yourself and to heal yourself. You’ve got to live a lifestyle. You’ve got to live a lifestyle that, that cultivates a standard, you know, a neutral level where you live like this is your way of living. And we begin with food and understanding your gut microbiome first through doing the volume test. And I figured out that I got to avoid tomatoes, anything containing histamine, red meat and sugar and super foods for me were apple cider vinegar, bananas, avocados, basil seeds, honey clarified butter. Number two is exercise doing 20 minutes of exercise at the very minimum every day. And having two days of intense exercise. And you can do either meditation or yoga for your mental wellbeing. Number three, I sleep seven or eight hours for me. Uh, I stopped setting an alarm, which was key for me going to asterisk. This.
I stopped setting an alarm and I started to go to bed earlier. And I see that some nights I can sleep as little as seven and other nights, other nights, as much as nine hours. And there are four phases of sleep. There’s three non REM sleep, which helps you recover your body and consolidate, consolidate longer-term memories and REM sleep, which helps you consolidate shorter term memories and help your brain, um, just recover better. Cause there’s two types of systems. You have the lymphatic and the glymphatic system. The glymphatic helps your brain recover. The lymphatic helps your body recover. And how I did that was through measuring my sleep via the ordering. It’s the little ring that I used to wear. People thought it was like a hematite ring, but it was just a gadget, but I don’t like to wear it everyday because it’s stuffs to control your life.
And the key was go to bed earlier. The last thing that I talked about was your environment and controlling your environment, surround yourself in nature, get at least 15 minutes of sunlight, vitamin D and sulfate form because the ultra violate stimulates the production of this vitamin D in the sulfate form, which is important for you. And you can’t get that from pills. And if you don’t live in an area where you can get that, I would definitely recommend checking out a tanning bed and trying that out. Not too much, because too much of it can be bad, but just little bits of it and avoid blue light in the evenings. And the other thing about environment is also your social environment surrounding yourself with the right people that is important surrounding yourself with right people, healthy people, and having a few friends that you hang out with human beings are social creatures.
We need people around us. You can’t just stay alone forever. It will slowly eat you up inside. So yeah, with that, I can conclude this video. Thank you so much for watching.
