DIGITAL MEDIA ADDICTION COACHING
“Using social media can lead to physical and psychological addiction because it triggers the brain's reward system to release dopamine, the “feel-good” chemical. Dopamine is actually a neurotransmitter (a chemical messenger between neurons) involved in neurological and physiological functioning.” – cited: https://www.leehealth.org
“Digital addiction is a harmful dependence on digital media and devices such as smartphones, video games, and computers. Some psychologists believe that addiction to electronic devices and media should be classified similarly to substance abuse disorders. June 30, 2022.” – cited: https://unitedbrainassociation.org
