How to reboot your operating system

Written by Stuart Haden on June 7, 2017

Dave Asprey who is the Founder of Bulletproof often talks about our out of date operating system. We require an upgrade otherwise we are stuck using primordial technologies.

We are primed to flight, flight – a classic survival mechanism. We want to eat everything, from tail to nose – its no wonder food cravings rocket in the fast food environment. And of course we want to have sex and give birth to a new generation.

So we need a reboot! One of the practices that can fix these bugs is Heart Rate Variability (HRV) Training. A means to quantify your state, and provide you with the information to get in the zone more often. I picked up an Inner Balance sensor from HeartMath that clips on to your ear lobe and syncs with their free app. As long as you are willing to put the time in (I use it for about 10 minutes a day) you really can transform your response to stress through heart coherence. It also acts as a really good ‘fitness test’ – what sort of shape am I in today? To maximize time I sometimes use it whilst driving, it’s a good way to curb road rage?!
