11 Signs You Have LOW Dopamine Levels!

November 10, 2022
Today’s video is about that mythical, magical, motivational neurotransmitter dopamine. Dopamine is super important for making us feel pleasure and motivation. When dopamine is released, we feel good, which makes us want to do that action again repeatedly. Dopamine is our body’s way of rewarding us for activities that should be used to sustain us. But, if your body produces it through unhealthy means, you will not have the right balance. Then, the activities that are supposed to produce it will stop working as they should. 

Unhealthy ways dopamine becomes imbalanced

Drugs, alcohol, the internet, and social media can cause a constant cycle that can develop bad habits. Having discipline is critical, and creating healthy habits is a must. When you think about motivation surrounding successful people, it boils down to good habits. What you do consistently will determine where you end up. Check out the audiobook from James Clear called “Atomic Habits,” which is one of the best audiobooks I’ve ever listened to you. It gives a framework to develop exceptional habits and how to break bad ones. The book re-shapes how you think about being successful with easy-to-follow actionable steps. I’ve also been hooked on the Audible podcast “Business Wars.” 

Common signs that dopamine is deficient

  1. Lacking motivation. 
  2. Difficulty focusing on a task, job, or objective.
  3. Being tired, sluggish, lazy, and run down.
  4. Being restless at night.
  5. Not finding enjoyment with things that used to give you pleasure.
  6. Having a lower sex drive.
  7. Being socially withdrawn.
  8. Having problems with anger and low self-esteem.
  9. Being super forgetful.
  10. Having a difficult time controlling impulses.
  11. Hand tremors, muscle cramps, and gastrointestinal issues such as constipation.

How to get dopamine back into balance

  • Get the behavior under control while developing a new habit in its place.
  • Exercise.
  • Get massages.
  • Engage in meditation.
  • Engage in activities outdoors, such as gardening, walking, or hiking.
  • Take L-tyrosine and L-theanine amino acids, which are building blocks for dopamine.
  • Take vitamin D3 and magnesium supplements along with omega-3 fatty acids.

Nothing is worse than buying a new super-sexy signature scent and getting home where the fragrance doesn’t smell like you thought. To avoid this, check out my fragrance-buying tips. The first tip is to take your time because it’s all about the transition. The top note is what it smells like at first, which is not how the fragrance will end up. Give it time. The mid and the base follow. The base is what it settles into, so a great rule of thumb is to spray the fragrance on you and then eat lunch or go home. Evaluate after that. The scent will smell different on different people as well. The second tip is to go to the store without applying any fragrance and pick two areas of your body to test. I recommend using a different wrist for different fragrances. After applying, let the cologne chill and smell it about 60 minutes later.
