You probably don't have a problem playing video games or browsing social media on your phone. In fact I have no doubt you could sit in front of a screen and do both of those activities for 2 hours, or even longer without breaking your concentration.
But what about half an hour of studying? That might be too hard.
How about working on your side business for another hour? Doesn't sound too appealing.
Even though you logically know that studying, exercising, building a business or something equally productive, will bring you more benefits in the long run, you still prefer watching TV, playing video games and scrolling through social media.
One might argue that it's obvious why.
One activity is easy and doesn't require much effort, while the other activity is difficult and it requires you to apply yourself.
But some people seem to have no problem studying, exercising, or working on their side projects, regularly.
Which begs the question: Why are some people more motivated to tackle difficult things?
And is there a way to make doing difficult things, easy?

Everytime I have to go to the Hospital I know what I had. I had good food and something to do. Instead of 24/7 hanging on my phone watching shit or just sleep 16/24 hours.

Sometimes it's not just that the passive activities are "easy", they're also highly addictive by design to exploit your finances/insecurities/free time.

Thx for video. It's sounds like truth. I will try to isolate myself from addicted things. I could add that we need to understand one thing, that success is hard work and nothing doesn't come easy)

When I watched or was lost in Russian BRvid only, it was bad habit. Now there're English videos in my recommendations so it became a good habit, that makes me learn English (^o^)

Every time I want to focus on productive things like reading or painting, I always jump online to find motivation. How do I paint xyz? What are the reviews on this book? What book should I read next? What are the best water colors? Why can’t I just DO what I want without having to go down an internet rabbit hole for 4 hours? I need to detox for sure...

Hello, I would like to know if it is sufficient to stop all sources of dopamine too high for one day a month. I mean I have doubts about the efficiency, will one day a month change anything? Because after this day, we can resume these activities that release us from dopamine, and resume as before, is a day sufficient and really effective? Ps: I'm sorry if my English is bad, I'm French, thank you :)

conclusion: to be less addicted to anything really, you have to do it less XD. (I still get your story and I can imagine that it works that way.)

Actually this worked for me. On first week you're gonna be super bored, feel sleepy, and not so motivated but as you keep going you'll get results. I do yoga, workout, drawing for 7 hours which i don't do before. I also made some schedule very specific on the first weeks, this may sound too much for ordinary people but it really works. Great way to change your routine.

So walking is a low dopamine activity, but running or biking gives you more dopamine. Does that mean that you couldnt go for a run during a dopamine detox??
