Working For The Reward

We are overloaded with microdoses of dopamine throughout the day, because every company knows that if you have a positive experience in there store or eating their food, then you are much more likely to return as a repeat customer.

“Pleasure experienced without the prior requirement for pursuit is terrible for us.”

Being able to work for our rewards throughout our lives is very important for future success over a lifetime.

Dr Huberman recommends that we go without a phone for the first hour of every day, because this time period allows us to actively digest everything we were thinking about during the night and plan what we want to do for the rest of the day. You are reshaping your brain during sleep. When you wake from sleep you are in a perfect situation to accept the downloaded information that your brain was trying to cement into memory during sleep.

It’s not always easy, but putting little restrictions in place like not looking at your phone first thing in the morning or having a particular window of eating during the day can have incredible benefits on your drive and mental stability over the long-term.

Taking breaks from social media and your phone for a few hours, a day or even a week can be extremely helpful for your brain. So maybe you block off a time during the day where you put your phone in airplane mode in order to not receive any notifications.
