Hacking Your Health: Hacking Your Time

Today we’re standing in the middle of my front lawn to talk about how you can hack away at your health.  
  
What do we mean by that? As you can see in the video above, my lawn is full of 5-ft high weeds. This is because yardwork isn’t high on my priority list, so I let the weeds pile up. Then when I do need to take care of the lawn, it takes forever.  
  
Your health works the same way. If you fail to maintain it, you can fall into a health crisis and then have to work your way backward just to regain it. There are ways, however, that you can “hack away” at your health for 30 minutes each day to make sure that doesn’t happen. 
  
The first thing you must do is schedule out your time. If you’re not scheduling it, it’s not happening. We hack our minds by doing things like guided meditation each morning at 6 a.m. For 10 minutes, we listen to apps like Calm and Headspace. We also like to hack our minds while we drive to work by listening to educational audiobooks and podcasts. This is also a neat trick to take your mind off how frustrating traffic can be.  
  
The second thing you must do is exerciseThe No. 1 reason people claim they don’t exercise is they don’t have time, but you only need 10 to 15 minutes to get a good workout in. We get our exercise in by doing high-interval intensity training. An example of this would be to do 10 reps of three different movements like pushups, pull-ups, and air squats. The goal of these workouts is to go hard, take a small break, and go hard again. Pushing your heart rate up, letting it go down, and pushing it up again will raise your metabolism and burn more fat. 

“If you’re not scheduling it, it’s not happening.”

The last thing you must do is meal preparation. This is usually the biggest struggle that most people have, but it’s not as hard as you think. After Dr. Ho and his wife go grocery shopping, for example, they take an hour and a half to plan out their lunch and dinner meals for the rest of the week. Crockpots and pressure cookers are two pieces of equipment that come in handy for this process.  
  
When people don’t prep their meals, they tend to settle for fast food. Not only is this far less healthy, but it’s also more expensive. When you prep your meals, you know what’s in your food and you know you’re getting a good, healthy meal every single time.  
  
That’s 30 minutes each day and an hour and a half to two hours on Sunday you can use to hack your health. Just like your lawn, you don’t want weeds growing inside your body in the form of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, etc.  
  
If you have any questions about hacking your health, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We’d be happy to speak with you.

  • "If you have back and/or neck trouble and have never been to a chiropractor before, then this is the place for you. I was referred here by my wife who has been seeing the doctors for several years. Since starting my adjustments I sleep better and feel better all around, and no it doesn't hurt. Currently I am recovering from tennis elbow and bursitis which the doctors are helping me recover by using a massager on my arm when I visit, even my physical therapist was glad they were helping out."

Our kiddos get adjusted too and for our infant it helped him to crawl properly when he was having difficulties or crawling abnormally. It is a vital part of our healthiness and we would recommend them to everyone!"
