What is the Difference Between a Biohack and a Habit?



A biohack and a habit are essentially the same except that a habit is a biohack which we have repeated so often that we can do it without thinking. James Clear, author of Atomic Habits, explains, “The ultimate purpose of habits is to solve the problems of life with as little energy and effort as possible.” A habit becomes an automatic routine when it becomes wired into certain parts of our brain, leaving the decision-making parts of the brain free to do more important things.

If we are going to biohack longevity, first we must do a little research and identify which ancient or modern biohacks will help us to become healthier and happier. They may be as simple meditating twice a day, or having a personalized exercise program, or a more ideal diet. Next, it is important to transform our biohacks into habits.  This requires motivation. But each of us is different, so for one person it might be easy to adopt a new habit while for another it takes effort and sometimes help from a partner or friend. In Self Empower, we explore how different Ayurvedic mind/body natures approach habits and offer a strategy on how to make a Habit Map and Plan that will ensure success in turning your biohack into a positive healthy habit.

Will Durant –
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.
