Zestful Biohacking – with Tony Wrighton

Tony Wrighton is one of television’s more familiar faces, having presented numerous shows for such channels as Sky Sports. He’s also an expert in NLP, and an author who’s been published in twelve languages.

Tony is also a fierce proponent of the idea that everyone should live their life with more energy, vitality, and motivation. This week, Tony joins Angela to talk about his most valuable health hacks, how to increase your energy levels, and the various tracking techniques he uses to map out his health agenda.

Key Takeaways

  • NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming, a term coined in the 1970s, and which Tony describes as “neuro-hacking”; a process of making your brain work better. NLP has many uses in advertising, psychology and teaching. It allows us to get things done that we may not feel inclined to do.
  • Effective tracking of mood, energy levels and diet, can show us the best times in our lives to perform certain tasks. Tony uses a spreadsheet to map his schedule, and then to identify the way he feels at those times.
  • Meditation done properly seems to create time between thoughts. It allows us to reduce the speed of our day, and by doing so, allows us to see that we often have more time in a day than we think.
  • As well as mimicking the effects of fasting, Resveratrol also has been shown to reverse some of the effects of Alzheimer’s. 
  • One of the simplest hacks that Tony performs in order to provide himself with higher energy levels, is to arrange something fun. The sense of excitement and anticipation adds an energy level that even Tony finds sometimes surprising.
  • Angela recommends beginning your day at least half an hour before schedule. By allowing yourself breathing room, you remove that morning rush that inevitably leads to fatigue and irritability later on.

‘Live consciously’
