The Quantified Self is a movement to incorporate technology into data acquisition for all aspects of a person's daily life in terms of inputs. These may include items such as type and quantity of food consumption and quality of surrounding such as air quality and room temperature, current state of the individual including mood, blood oxygen levels, and mental and physical performance capabilities. Devices are preferably self-monitoring and self-sensing and may include wearable sensors for EEG and ECG monitoring
