A dopamine detox, often referred to as a “digital detox,” is a temporary period during which a person restricts or eliminates activities that provide high levels of dopamine release in the brain. This can include things like reducing or abstaining from the use of social media, video games, excessive internet browsing, and other highly stimulating or addictive behaviors. The goal is to reset one’s dopamine system, improve focus, and regain control over these behaviors. It’s not a medical detox but rather a self-imposed break from certain activities to promote mental well-being and productivity. Some experts believe that such a detox can help boost focus since it cuts out so many distractions.
