Quantified Self

I have always tried to optimise my health and well-being but in the past five years I have found a community of like minded people in London: the Quantified Self, London meetup.

I am now one of the co-organisers of the meetup and I am consistently inspired to hear the self-led adventures of others.

The London QS meetup modulates between 50-100 people, who meet about once a month. Each session has 3-4 speakers who talk about their own personal experiences with self-optimisation, recovery from pain, or just geeking out with personal data.

Personally, I’m interested in staying fit and optimising my mental energy in a sustainable way. I measure my weight, body fat, glucose, sleep, exercise, and actigraphy regularly. I also have experimented with Magnesium supplementation, cold thermogenesis, electrical stim training/recovery (body not brain), and am always looking for a new optimisation to self-experiment with.

If you’re interested in talking or attending a session please join the community on the Meetup page:

If you’re just curious or you just can’t wait for the next meetup to start, we have many of the talks over the past few years on video on the Vimeo site:

What are you waiting for … it’s time to self-optimise!
