Sex, drugs & burnout prevention

When I check my LinkedIn feed I see a lot of celebration posts. Some just closed big deals, others won 15 awards for outstanding creative work and again others are celebrating their first speech in front of 4000 people. You are doing an awesome job in whatever you do. That's great! So how about supporting the next generation in becoming as awesome as you are? Why and how? Read Alex's thoughts on this.

Let’s talk about dopamin!

Wikipedia says:

“Dopamine (DA, a contraction of 3,4-dihydroxyphenethylamine) is a neuromodulatory molecule that plays several important roles in cells. It is an organic chemical of the catecholamine and phenethylamine families.”


“In popular culture and media, dopamine is often portrayed as the main chemical of pleasure…”

So if you feel sad and need some good vibes you have to increase your dopamine level and here we go – the happy you is back!

So how do you increase your dopamine?

With sex for example. Or with cocaine (Crystal meth would be an option, too)

And since option one isn’t always appropriate and option two should not be the the way to go, here’s another one:


Wikipedia again:

“The brain includes several distinct dopamine pathways, one of which plays a major role in the motivational component of reward-motivated behavior. The anticipation of most types of rewards increases the level of dopamine in the brain.”

Rewards give you dopamine! YES!

So if you help someone you’re not only making this person happy – no! You’re making yourself happy! Win-Win!

Having a positive impact on people's lives is incredible. It’s so heartwarming to hear the emotional feedback from participants of Actio livecasts. Our community is changing lives!

You should try it. Become a supporter! We all have different skill sets and can help others with something, maybe how to prevent a burnout – you awesome and  successful workaholic!

We all can support one another.

Like with all other dopamine sources – the first time is very exciting and you’ll be probably a bit nervous. But instead of some other sources – it’s always worth it and no need to be concerned about addiction.

See you in a livecast!
