Hi everyone, I'm Ale.
I recently decided to stop gaming, even if I did very little. I started playing Sea of Thieves and that was really messing up my dopamine reward sistem.
Like I costantly thought about gaming and what I could do next in the game, and activities like studying became a boredom.
I also decided to stop using youtube. It was a waste of time and I was messing up my brain.
Now the qjuestion is: will my effort make studying more fun? I can't really do a dopamine detox because I still live with my family, but I really hope cutting out these activities will help me considering studying fun again.
It has been a year since I deleted my social media and distracting apps. I still have whatsapp but it's for going out and keeping in contact.
Let me know your thoughts about this!
