Scripter is a wearable voice recorder, and dopamine is a neural transmitter. The two are related in more ways than you think.
How to trick your brain using Scripter? How does it work?
What is the dopamine cycle, and why does it need breaking? Why do so many people these days talk about it? Read on and find out.
Dopamine is an organic chemical released by the neurons in our brain. Being a neurotransmitter, it transmits all kinds of signals. In popular culture, dopamine is sometimes known as the “pleasure hormone”, but it’s a very simplistic view.
It would be much more fitting to call dopamine the motivation chemical.
Dopamine is released into your system when you anticipate an enjoyable event.
The event does not have to be anything major. Pressing a button to see a video game character shoot a blaster at aliens is just as good as witnessing your favorite team win the championship. In fact, it’s more pleasurable due to the simple reality of it being quick and easy to achieve.
This is where it gets dangerous.
Dopamine cycle is a pleasure-withdrawal loop you can develop by having too much of a good thing. Momentary pleasure increases your dopamine, which then drops, and you start craving the same activity that had caused the release of the chemical. This way, your brain encourages you to stick to the tasks you find satisfying.
And so you do it again.
If this sounds like an addiction to you, then you are correct. A perfectly normal neurotransmitter can go haywire and make you associate certain things with pleasure – if you let it.
The most common “addiction” caused by the dopamine cycle?
The intense pull to chase instant gratification brought to you by yet another view, yet another repost, yet another animation played in front of your eyes.
The habit is stupidly simple to reinforce, so it’s no wonder the internet is the top procrastination spot and entertainment source for most people in 2021.
The good news is that experiencing the information-fueled dopamine cycle does not mean you should toss your phone out of the window and go live under a rock. The cycle can be broken, provided you create the distraction-free environment to “detox” from the stream of feel-good stimuli.
This is where Scripter makes its entrance.
A wearable recorder with no screen to speak of and a single button, Scripter can help you with the successful dopamine detox in several ways.
- With Scripter, there can be no distractions. The device is physically incapable of displaying images or receiving notifications – and this is a good thing. You can hide your phone; out of sight, out of mind.
- Stay productive while off the grid. If you find digital detox impossible due to there being just too many things you have to be working on, Scripter is your cheat code to the whole system. Now you can work without typing or even looking at the screen.
- Long recording sessions. This feature helps you focus without jumping from memo to memo. If the focus is there, you can record a ridiculous amount of text in one sitting (source: experience).
- Trick your brain. By making Scripter easy to use, we have also managed to make it more appealing to the dopamine-starved brain than scrolling away on your phone. We have turned the instant gratification principle on its head – and it worked!
As a productivity and mindfulness tool, Scripter is designed to help you reinforce only the good habits.
Scripter encourages you to take notes anytime, anywhere. Create short memos and to-do lists – or record whole chapters of your newest book. Use it as a digital diary to preserve your happiest memories – or log your business meetings whenever you like.
