Neuroscientist Dr. Don Vaughn shares that our dopamine receptors are tired. Dopamine is a pleasure chemical that makes us feel good, and it’s released when we do something we like. When it’s overtaxed we get hit with the urge to do the same activity, like refresh our social media feed, but without the joy. Could avoiding doing things you love like food, movies, and even sex, be good for a reset to your dopamine receptors?
