A few years ago, Mental Olympian was started as a community/blog that was intended to help others achieve self optimization. Like many others, I was apart of the “biohacker” community and had a very entrepreneurial driven mindset.
At the time, I didn’t realize that I was starting this website to try and solve my own health problems. My headliner symptom was chronic fatigue, so I set out to figure out why my health was not improving. In between many doctors appointments, I was trying to “hack” my health. I exercised 5 days a week, ate a healthy diet, slept like a sleeping beauty, and tried to manage my mind. I felt like crap on a daily basis, but was living the epitome of a healthy lifestyle. It wasn’t until a few years later that I was diagnosed with ME/CFS & Small Fiber Neuropathy. My health, among many other life challenges have shaped how I see life and how to learn to live in the present.
Through trials and tribulations this website has been built to what it is today. The obstacles show us the way and allows us to derive meaning from our life. It is our responsibility to manage our mind, emotions, and interpret life in the best way possible to live a 100% authentic life.
