Silicon Valley changed the way we communicate, work, play and catch Pokémon. Can it also transform how we approach health?

Companies such as Google, Facebook, and Apple hire the brightest minds who work long hours to bring amazing advancements to life. To keep up with the demanding lifestyle, tech workers have been looking outside the box to power themselves, trying nutrient solutions like Soylent, training their minds with philosophy, or taking 'smart drugs'. Now another approach to getting the most out of your body has been gaining in popularity among workaholic techies. It's called 'positive stress'.

The proponents of positive stress think that combining tactics like subjecting yourself to extreme temperatures, limited diets, grueling workouts and overall discomfort can help you live longer and more productively.
