Ever notice that you look at your phone more than you want to? Ever look up and realize you got caught up in scrolling a little too much?
There is good reason for that. Software engineers are hired by handfuls of tech companies to keep high engagement levels in social media apps.
Turns out, it’s actually no mystery that notifications keep us opening apps over and over again.
The little notification flags, hearts, and “like” symbols have been proven to release dopamine and make us feel a little rush of connection.
Connection is great! And social media can be fun too.
But maybe our next step is to make sure we get the connections we’re looking for. Healthy connections, both online and IRL. Connection through community, relationships, etc.
My program, Power Up Your Retirement Lifestyle, is tailored to people looking for connection while transitioning into retirement. The online program helps focus your thinking on what is important to you.
