Next is your epigenome (epi meaning above the genome). It includes everything that is not genetics, such as the sum total of what happens to you in life beginning with gestation. It accounts for about 70 percent of your level of wellness and lifespan—or more. It is so powerful it can even impact your genome. It includes what happens to you, the choices you make, the habits you develop, the behaviors you exhibit, the stressors you are exposed to and how you respond, your job or career, and your relationships, both personal and professional. Epigenetics includes your lifestyle: what you eat and drink, where you go, what you do, whom you hang out with, what you listen to, what you read, what you watch, the sports you play, and the music you like, to name a few—and every choice you make for or against taking the best possible care of your brain and body.
