In my previous post, I discussed that lack of drive is not a character flaw. Rather, there are biological and psychological reasons why one may feel unmotivated. I explained what these factors were and offered some tips on how to enhance focus and get unstuck.
Once these aspects are addressed, those who have been overwhelmed and depleted for some time may feel they need additional support. Naturopathic doctors are experts in finding the best lifestyle practices, nutrients, and supplements to enhance wellness. When one is struggling with focus and motivation issues, increasing a neurotransmitter to boost attention (dopamine) and using botanicals are often included in individualized treatment plans to assist with stress resiliency and tonify the nervous system.
In my latest article, I discuss how to naturally enhance dopamine. I also review the herbal categories of adaptogens and nervines and explain how they can be used to benefit cognition and energy.
Topics covered include:
- 7 tips to naturally boost dopamine, the neurotransmitter of “reward and motivation”
- How adaptogens support resiliency from emotional and physical stressors and their mechanisms of action
- The three categories of nervines and what they do
