We all have addictions. Small habit loops that suck us into social media or watching videos for longer than we expected. Did you know these little things could be having a massive effect on your motivation and overall sense of wellbeing?
This episode talks mostly about recognizing some of these small addictions that most of us have. It's also about a practical way to reset those behaviors to a healthy level.
The term "Dopamine Fast" is a bit misleading, but that's what the internet is calling it. The idea is that "fasting" or cutting out some behaviors completely for a short period of time can help reset the systems those behaviors are effecting in the brain.
Here's a great, in-depth article on the subject if you want to do some further reading:
Depression can dig someone deeper and deeper into a pit of despair and deprive you of your energy, hope, and drive. The tricky part of depression is that it attacks the very things that would help you get better.
We haven't had a new episode in about a month. That is because I've been dealing with a particularly deep and extended bout of depression. This episode talks about what I learned from this one and the coping mechanisms I've learned over the years to climb out of the pit. Even if it has to be one grasp at a time.

Join me on our collective journey of figuring this life out. This show is for you if you find yourself asking: How do I find my purpose? Why do I keep making the same mistakes? How can my relationships be stronger? Is there more to this life than just surviving?
We can do more than just survive. We can thrive and live a fulfilling life full of joy. We can attain financial, spiritual, and intellectual freedom.
Stop wasting your potential. This is a beautiful abundant life, even if it doesn't always feel like it.
