Getting distracted easily and often?
Can't remember the last time you felt motivated to work?
Feeling like you're stuck?
This is common.
It's a symptom of numbing your brain with social media, games, and other hyper-stimulating activities.
We are most certainly ancient brains in a high-tech world.
—Adam Gazzaley, The Distracted Mind
Our brain has not evolved to deal with Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, or YouTube.
This traps us in a cycle of distraction that makes it hard to make progress with work, school, or life in general.
And this is where a dopamine detox comes in:
Dopamine detox is a time-restricted challenge (14, 30, 90 days) when you temporarily reduce as many distractions as you can.
Start living a more intentional and fulfilling life, whatever that means for you.
We've done the research on what dopamine detox is about and helped dozens of people to stop checking distractions mindlessly through our dopamine detox challenge and make progress in life.
Now we've distilled the key lessons and process into a short and practical guide!
