190: Dopamine Detox
“We get addicted to scrolling, to checking Facebook, to checking our text messages, to the point where we are actually doing nothing.”
Today I want to dive into something that I’m calling The Dopamine Experiment. I had never done it before, but now I’ve done it a few times over the past couple of weeks and I’m hooked — and this experiment goes way beyond a digital detox! If you’re anything like me, you’ve been struggling to focus at work ever since social media burst into our lives. My mind is always searching for that hit of dopamine. And we get addicted to scrolling.
Having some extra time at home during the quarantine, I knew that this could be the perfect time to try out this reset plan. There are a few options to choose from with varying levels of strictness, so you can spend some time deciding which option is best for you to start with, and we talk about those options in today’s episode.
Listen in to learn about the benefits dopamine, what the three levels of a dopamine detox consist of, and why this is the perfect time to curb your addiction to social media.
