Sixty million years of primate evolution has resulted in human bodies and minds exquisitely tuned to thrive in our natural habitats. However, through technology, we can lead lives wholly detached from those rhythms, leading to health decline as bodies and minds are out of sync. Thanks to science, we understand the root causes of modern diseases and develop skills to better our lives. Human.Os provides the training and tools that everyone needs but few receive.
The modern world poses many challenges to our health. What is the true nature of the battle we fight and how do we get what we really seek?
Humans are extraordinary, including you. Each and every one of us is capable of feats of body and mind unrivaled in the animal kingdom. Sixty million years of primate evolution has resulted in human bodies and minds that are exquisitely tuned to thrive in our natural habitats and to enjoy lasting vitality and well-being throughout our lifespan.
There’s only one problem... we don’t live there anymore.
Our world has changed exponentially just over the past century and continues to do so at an accelerating pace. We find ourselves now living in a habitat very different from the one in which our bodies and brains were shaped to thrive in. In other words, the world we live in now is mismatched to the one that our bodies and brains expect.
Human biology remains precisely synchronized to the rhythms of the natural world. Yet today, through technology, we can lead lives completely detached from those rhythms, leading to bodies and minds that are out of sync. Because of that, most of us go through life carrying an invisible weight that keeps us from reaching our full potential in all the things in life we care to do well.
This mismatch between our modern and natural habitat diminishes our resilience, reduces what we can achieve with our minds, and accelerates the aging process.
It drives the rising burden of chronic diseases from Alzheimer’s to cancer to heart disease and stroke, each of these a symptom of living in a mismatched world. This decline in our health and resilience over time is now so pervasive that we expect it. We expect bodies to lose strength, to gain weight, to have aches and pains, and to continuously fail with age. We expect our minds to decline, to experience brain fog, problems focusing, and forgetfulness.
This decline in body and mind has become the norm because the forces that drive it are invisible and insidious. Invisible because they are a part of ordinary life. The modern world feels like our natural habitat because it’s all we’ve ever known. And they’re insidious because the advancement of technology and the reliable change it produces are a constant in today’s life.
But none of these health issues are inevitable.
That’s right...none of them. They are only inevitable when our bodies and minds don’t receive what they need to thrive.
So is there a way for a human at any age to realize its potential? To return to this higher state of health and performance we are all capable of? A way that doesn’t involve ditching all that we love about the modern world? Better yet, is it possible to get the best of both worlds - to reach this higher state of health and performance while still enjoying the wonders of modern life and technology?
We think so.
Thanks to science, we understand a tremendous amount about why bodies and minds fail and the root causes of modern disease, and we understand why and when our body works at its best.
Knowledge we can use to achieve our goals.
But how do we do this? To unlock this potential, what must we learn? What must we do? In other words, how do we develop all the skills we need and then stay present to use those skills on a daily basis?
The journey of health mastery is a lifelong pursuit. Mastering any complex skill, whether it’s the piano, soccer, or a martial art doesn’t happen in a few days, and it doesn’t happen without training and practice.
In today’s mismatched world living healthfully is a set of skills that we master over time through consistent training and practice. What is our reward for that training and practice? The realization of potential that would otherwise remain locked away.
Human.OS is a tool for mastering health, one that provides the training and practice needed to create your unique and personalized expression of living an effective and healthy life in today’s world. Human.OS provides the training and tools that everyone needs but few receive.
Simply by using the tools you will be leveraging the latest in Behavioral Science to help make your journey to mastery smooth and enjoyable.
Humans are extraordinary.
We all have amazing potential and are capable of so much.
