Dopamine is a neurotransmitter made in your brain. But did you know at what extent it makes us do certain actions?
A lot of people just aren't aware of what damage dopamine can cause to us.
As I said before, dopamine is a chemical released in the brain.
It is involved in making decisions, always looking for pleasure.
Today, we live in a world full of stimuli.
And it is all thanks to our hiper-connected planet, where we have more access than ever to high releases of dopamine, whether it is videogames, social media, proccessed food...
The modern devil is cheap dopamine.
It is no coincidence that we are less focused than ever. Our attention is a skill that can be developed or worsened and this affects our relationships and goals for the future. For example: someone who prefers staying at home scrolling through social media rather than meeting some friends won't make any friends in the future.
However, not all hope is lost. As I said before, your attention is a skill that can be trained through meditating or other simpler activities such as walking or running.
I also reccommend setting timers for certain apps that distract you so that when you reach it, it won't let you use it for the rest of the day.
These are excellent habits that will help you improve your attention.
If the previously mentioned habits don't work for you, you can try a relatively new practice.
It consists of choosing the activities that release most dopamine to you (eating chocolate, watching Netflix, playing videogames) and completely stop doing them for a week.
People that have tried it say that it's a bit difficult at the beginning, but they don't regret doing it.
Will you try some of these practices?
Don't forget to comment any doubt, suggestion, etc.
See you later.
Let's learn something.
If you want to understand how dopamine works, as well as take control of your life by reducing your dopamine intake, this is a must-read.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
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.
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.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
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.
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.
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!
