INCREASE Your Dopamine Levels And You Will Never Feel Again Sad, Stressed or Depressed
June 15, 2018
Dopamine is crucial for our happiness and well-being and low levels of this neurotransmitter can lead to sadness, depression, negativity and many other emotional troubles .
Luckily, there are 10 easy and all- natural ways to increase our dopamine levels without using medications.
1. Addiction to drugs, alcohol, and gambling, and even addiction to sex or shopping, often provides us with an instant pleasure but they will never provide a permanent solution to our problems. It is very important to enjoy in simple things such as conversations, walking or reading. Moreover, note that you should also look for a job in which you will enjoy.
2.Dopamine levels increase when we are organized and finish tasks, regardless of whether the tasks are easy or difficult.So,you should write them on paper and check them off one at a time.
If some task represents a change of 25% (or bigger change) in your routine, you will feel incapable of completing it and this usually leads to a self-sabotage or giving up. On the other hand, if your task involves less than 10% change to your routine, it is very likely that you will not do it because it will look easy and meaningless.In other words, you should do something that is challenging and motivating, but still not too difficult.
3. Create Something. You don’t necessarily have to be a professional artist in order to be creative. Writing, painting, sculpturing, drawing, dancing, singing, knitting,cooking, making crafts, and auto repair, are just some of the many creative things you can do.
4. Regular exercise reduces stress, creates joy and makes us stronger, which is very important for our day-to-day life.
5. Increase Tyrosine. It is one of the 22 key amino acids that are used for the creation of proteins in the body. Besides dopamine, tyrosine can also increase norepinephrine levels.
There are many food sources that can increase the tyrosine levels in your body, such as almonds, avocados, bananas, watermelon, green tea, and dark chocolate.
6.Listening to music can increase your dopamine levels, even though this is only a temporary increase. It will make you feel amazing temporarily, but it won’t lead to a lasting fulfillment. That’s why music should only be one of your many sources of dopamine.
