Have you ever considered making a major lifestyle change? Most of us have at one point or another in our lives, whether it’s starting a new exercise regimen, changing our nutritional intake, quitting smoking, or even dedicating ourselves to a new hobby. The toughest part of making a lifestyle change is simply sticking to it; however, author and entrepreneur Tim Ferriss has a simple solution: treat yourself like a human guinea pig and consistently track yourself at every turn.
At last week’s WIRED Health Conference: Living By Numbers, Ferris sat down to discuss the 4-Hour Everything– a method to track one’s daily living. The author of The 4-Hour Workweek and The 4-Hour Body explained the usefulness monitoring health data, and explained how he tracks everything–and we mean everything– that goes into his body, as well as some things that happen to come out of it.
