020 - Dopamine Games and a book for people in struggle
Manage episode 312721678 series 3243002
This week we discussed dopamine and its many implications on people's lives. From understanding how dopamine can lead to addiction in drugs, we discuss similar effects from gambling to social media. We decided to open up a bit about ourselves and share coping mechanisms we use and what can help us get through to the next day. We also shared some tips on what is called “dopamine fasting” as a way to cleanse the brain of potential bad habits, and to start focusing on getting dopamine from positive sources to avoid addiction. We hope this episode helps you rethink how you interact with dopamine and build better, healthier habits for a better and more rewarding life.
