During this lockdown phase all daily routine gradually went out the window. Getting up late, if at all, skipping meals, eating junk to fill the boredom gaps. Drinking more. Exercising less. The list goes on.

Well let’s fix that!

Daily task success stimulates a positive and powerful response from your brain.

Plan your day for the win!

Top ways for improving mood through hormonal release and stimulation.

Routine is key to mental success. Set a small task. Complete it. Dopamine is release. Mood is boosted. The brain craves more and you are motivated to do it again.

We all know the healthy benefits of exercise but it’s vital to our motivation too. Ever hear the phase “energy creates energy” well it’s from the endorphin release after exercise that you have a mood boost and are motivated to do more. Exercise is recommended for boosting endorphin levels and improving mood.Improvements in mood can be seen after as little as 10 minutes of aerobic activity but tend to be highest after at least 20 minutes

Listening to music has shown signs of dopamine release in the brain.

Sunlight can boost dopamine levels. A lack of exposure during winter times can cause a condition know as seasonal affective disorder (SAD) cause you to feel sad or depressed. However avoid  prolonged unprotected exposure to harmful UV rays

Combine all 3-

Take a 20-30 minute walk or jog in the sunlight while listening to music

Other ways to boost dopamine levels:

Nutrition a balanced diet with good quality protein. One amino acid, the building blocks of protein, called tyrosine plays a critical role in the production of dopamine.

Taking probiotics and while more research is needed some studies have shown negative dopamine production in high in saturated fat diets. Meditation has also shown signs of positive dopamine release.

So here’s the challenge.
