Happiness, fulfillment, salvation and your brain’s biological makeup.

Happy days. Me and my boys before shit went south.
  1. either stop engaging in pleasure inducing activities(which involves anything that gives dopamine hits without actual fruitful action- involves binge eating, binge watching, chronic masturbation, binging on Instagram reels between work and at night etc.) to keep those daily chores rewarding so that when the day ends whatever indulgence you reward yourself with actually makes sense in real terms and hence is a real reward, or
  2. start pursuing pain deliberately which will in turn compel you to reassess your brain’s inclinations and its frequency to release dopamine and serotonin, a good example being deliberately learning a new skill for 30 mins a day so that your pleasure laden brain is forced to dive deep into the abyss below your dopamine levels’ baseline(which hurts, a lot) so that once you are done with the session, you have somewhat balanced it out for all binging and high you’ve been taking every other second of the day.
