Whenever someone tries to enhance their cognitive performance or focus on their work, they are consistently faced with the limitations of their own biology. This comes with many drawbacks and side effects and can create a lot of tension for those who are not careful. For most people who are trying to improve the quality of their brains and optimize mental performance, it makes a lot of sense to simply look to our future.
What is on the horizon that could help to achieve the level of cognitive performance and mental stamina that we are all looking for? Instead of flailing around trying to come up with tools for our basic needs, we can look for future tools that will drastically improve all of the aspects of cognition that we hold dear.
The top technologies that drive us forward make things a lot easier for us in the long run. Even though people are trying to make best use of the tools we have currently, there are still many things to look forward to:
#1. Biofeedback – getting tools that can give us biofeedback is important, but QEEG is one of the more democratized and cheaper tools that we can use. In a recent piece, one biohacker used a QEEG to measure nootropics and specifically whether or not phenylpiracetam works for concentration and creativity. Most of the evidence pointed towards yes, which was a great thing to find.
#2. Genomics – understanding how your genes interact with the environment is a big part of diagnosing and improving upon our greatest challenges. There are many tools where genes are being better understood and customized including tools like 23andme.
There are plenty of people who are utilizing the tools to improve their level of success and it is important to keep your genes as well understood as possible. Many of the genomic strategies will help with the combination of nootropics and other tools.
#3. Metabolomics – the metabolic pathways that influence us on a daily basis have a lot bigger role to play than we may know. It’s impossible to understand how effective a tool can be without being able to focus on your metabolism and figure out what is right for you.
The vast majority of people who are using the metabolic tools find that there are specific syndromes and other problems that can get in the way. It is a really important thing for people to find a tool (like Qualia) where it can help and doesn’t have a lot of side effects. Most of the people who use Qualia find that there are many benefits. The Qualia benefits may only differ based on metabolism, however.
Take consideration to understand these 3 new tools that will start to come out over the course of the next few years. As you are going to find out, there are plenty of advantages of using these tools in the ways that you see fit. Most people don’t do a good enough job of this, however. Stay strong and you’ll have the results you are looking for.
