What would our lives look like if we drowned out all the noise around us? In our modern world we constantly expose ourselves to different sources of instant gratification like social media, junk food, video games, alcohol or porn as these activities provide us with one dopamine hit after another. But it can quickly happen that our consumption gets out of balance and we get addicted to one of those things. Our brain creates impulsive behaviours where we don't even think about engaging in one of these activities anymore, but just do it right away. In order to show you the benefits of a life without any toxic consumption, I decided to detox from all of these dopamine sources for 7 days. During that time I recognised massive benefits like boosted productivity, mental clarity and an overall calmness. I hope this video motivates you to take back control over your own life as well!

    Imagine you are not rich, and you need to work every single day a job that you don't like. So you will need to listen to music, playing games or eat junk food, in order to switch from the bad world/mood and boos your DOPAMINE.

    Edit: now that I think about it, it probably is his house since he has his dogs with him but still appreciate it if anyone can confirm
