Scrolling, Spending + Romantic Co-dependency – Curbing Our Dopamine Obsessions

10/2/2017

One of my intentions this year is to become really conscious of where my energy is leaking and focus is off centre – so I can be in full integrity and commitment to my work and life. After doing some journalling on this, I discovered the first area I wanted to look at was the ways I seek to regularly release my dopamine (our internal ‘reward chemical’). It’s a significant source of energetic leakage for me, and I’m seeking to curb this tout suite because I have a whole heap of fantastic content, programs and offerings to channel and create this year. All of which require my complete and full energetic attention. I know without a doubt that the high dimensions I need to reach and the depths I need to go to with my work will not be reached unless I am consciously focused.

I daresay you too have some lofty and bold intentions for this year, hey beauty? I don’t know about you but I (and no doubt many others) want to see your amazing creations and self out in this big bright world. And we won’t if you keep burying your nose in weapons of mass distraction. (Just heard that term on Lewis Howes’ Podcast the other week, so I’m now putting it in my pocket.)

Seriously – what are you actually doing with this precious life of yours? Do you really want, ‘Could scroll Facebook like a total PRO’ on your epitaph?

No. Me neither.

So how about we look at re-wiring our reward mechanisms for each of these behaviours?

In this video I cover off on some unhelpful behaviours many of us engage with (often unconsciously): – scrolling, spending and fixating on codependent romantic love – and how we may like to re-frame how we engage with each, and re-think what our true rewards are in life.
