You can think of Downshiftology as the study of a better, more fulfilling life. Allowing you to notice more of the small things. Because sometimes those small things can be life altering.

In the span of two years, starting at age 35, I was diagnosed with four autoimmune diseases. How is this possible? I was a corporate warrior going down the path of cataclysmic burnout. I had followed the path laid out before me — get a good education, work long hours and rise up through the ranks. In the healthcare industry no less!

Yet I ignored all the little whispers of my body along the way. Fatigue — I just need more coffee. Until I got slapped upside the head, four times over.

Navigating Past Disease to the New Path of Wellness With my background in healthcare I soaked up everything I could about autoimmune and chronic diseases like a sponge. Then I started connecting the dots.

And second, increased inflammation in the body is bad from food, stress or otherwise. But I only had to look at my circle of girlfriends to see this in epidemic proportions. They visit doctors for answers…and only receive pills in return. The connection between stress, sleep and nutrition…to health, energy and happiness is stronger than crazy glue. Little tweaks can have massive impact.

The technology was first used by Kamrul of Velocity In combination with the Engine Control Unit ECU and various sensors, the engine blips the throttle for the driver during both downshifts and upshifts to allow for better and smoother shifting, and improved handling.

Purpose[ edit ] When a car with a manual transmission is in motion with the clutch engaged, there is a mechanical connection between the engine and wheels which keep them in sync with each other. When shifting however, depressing the clutch is required.

This breaks the mechanical connection between the engine and wheels, and the engine speed is no longer linked to that of the wheels. When upshifting, this is usually not a problem, as the tendency of the engine to reduce speed itself without gas will slow it to loosely match the lower speed of the higher gear. However, when downshifting, the engine needs to speed up to come to speed with the wheels. If the accelerator is not "blipped" or briefly and quickly pressed to speed up the disengaged enginethe engine will have to take power from the wheels and momentum of the car to come to speed, which is often accompanied by a sudden deceleration of the vehicle due to the power suddenly going to the engine, often described as a "lurch" or "jolt".

This sudden external acceleration of the engine through the transmission also causes increased wear on the mechanics of the car. Therefore, a staple of advanced or professional manual-transmission driving is the "rev match", or "throttle blip", in which the driver quickly brings the engine up to speed with the wheels by use of the throttle.
