What can you do to make yourself not just healthy, but as healthy as possible, and not just fit, but as fit as possible? How can you realize your maximally optimal physical potential?


Whether you want better mental alertness, health, fitness, physical capabilities, or even longer life, there are changes you can make both immediately during SXSW and longer term.


Appreciate personal progress rather than seeking out an arbitrary goal post. Set realistic expectations. Make incremental changes to resting, dietary, and exercise habits.


Learn how to critique and question the media messages, attitudes, and techniques about our bodies that are based more in myth, marketing and sales rather than objective studies and science.


Figure out what is optimal for you. Use passive and active metrics to measure yourself. Learn a variety techniques you can incrementally apply to optimize yourself per those metrics.


How do you respond to challenges such as being too busy, stress from personal situations, travel, peer pressure, and still make at least some progress (or hold steady) on your body optimization?


Panelists will share a broad variety of experiences, perspectives and methods from short term improvements to life extension techniques that you can compare and contrast.
