A while back I covered the Top 10 signs your serotonin levels are too low. And the Top 10 signs your dopamine levels are too high. It's rare that your serotonin levels would be too high. So that leaves one more bothersome neurotransmitter imbalance to address.
Neurotransmitters – the powerful group of chemicals inside the brain - create and reflect your feelings moods, thoughts and behaviors. These powerful chemicals in the brain result in physiological and psychological changes in how you experience life. All behavior has a corresponding chemical pattern in the brain.
There are more than a dozen neurotransmitters - but two of them (serotonin and dopamine) play a leading role in orchestrating our behaviors, thoughts, emotions and experiences.
Dopamine is your excitatory neurotransmitter. When your dopamine levels are too low you lack a strong vital inner force.
Here are my Top 10 signs that your dopamine levels are too low:
1. You will lack energy and stamina.
2. You will have no drive or motivation.
3. You will not be able to concentrate.
4. You will lack focus.
5. You will not be able to move memories into long term storage
6. You will become depressed and not have any future orientation. It will be all you can do to get through the day.
7. You will have trouble thinking and keeping your thoughts organized.
8. You will not be able to be creative.
9. You will not be able to pay attention.
10. You will have no adventuresome spirit. You will want to avoid making any changes in your life.
