Why rest and recovery are important
Dopamine (also known as the feel-good hormone) is a chemical produced by the body, which acts as a neurotransmitter (chemical messenger) in the brain.
You do various activities throughout the day. You find some interesting and you think you can do them all day like playing games, and some are just so boring like studying maybe.
This is because whenever you play games, it gives you a sense of reward and that triggers dopamine production in your brain. While activities like studying are low dopamine-producing and that doesn't excite you much.
So the simplest explanation of dopamine detox is "Avoid your pleasures and temptations for some time." You just have to leave whatever is your distraction for a week and observe the change.
Avoid your pleasures and focus on things like studying. You will observe that after some time you will start enjoying studying. Because you will not get dopamine through games but from studying (I have tried it myself!)
However, this doesn't mean that you will not enjoy your pleasures anymore. But it will help you to regulate your pleasures and not get addicted to them.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
