Low in motivation? Blame your brain chemistry!
To influence your long-term inclination to take action and persevere, look into enhancing the Catecholamine neurotransmitter group in the brain which is mainly centered on energy, stress management, focus and motivation.
In this book you will be given the comprehensive list of natural supplements, food sources and herbs that serve to BOOST and SUPERCHARGE these neurotransmitters which affect your motivational energy.
If you had to battle your own apathy, low energy and lack of drive to act, and motivational words simply don’t push you enough, look within your own biology and neurocircuitry to understand these “brain hacks”.
On top of a balanced lifestyle and having fulfilling relationships, consider the strategic consumption of natural herbal supplements that can help balance your brain chemistry to support your overall productivity and performance.

When I’ve realized that my unproductive habits, chronic low energy and mood had something to do with my mental health (and overall wellness), I did more research on how to improve my mental health through natural methods. The complex systems of the brain and its state truly determine your personality, natural inclination for certain actions and habits, chronic mood states and cognitive abilities (such as focus, memory, and learning).
Without relying on stimulants, electro-therapy and other prescription drugs, I found that an overall healthy lifestyle, strategic balanced diet (based on your nutritional typing), and a positive social environment — combined with the right supplements and herbs — you can enhance the brain chemistry that overall affects your performance, motivation, mood, learning capacities and functioning. This is not something to be underestimated, as so many people neglect their own potential to achieve more in their lives, if only they prioritized their health first.
Great health leads to sharp mental functioning, top physical performance, and stronger emotional management, which all positively contribute to managing better relationships and having a happier life.
Human motivation is the innate source that drives proactive, goal-oriented and action-taking behaviors, which can be emotional, environmental, and biological in essence. The biological and cognitive roots of motivation are strongly triggered in the limbic system of the brain, where activation takes place within a bundle of axons that travel through the hypothalamus area. This system is stimulated by various elements such as chemical administration (through food, supplements, and medications), electrical stimulation and the existing or genetic balance of the brain chemistry that affects overall mental functioning.
Neurotransmitters are the chemical substances and messengers in the human brain that influence synaptic activity. The widely known groups of neurotransmitters include Serotonin, GABA, Endorphins and Catecholamines, which are responsible for mood regulation, sleep, pleasure, energy, focus, motivation and the ability to perform tasks. Each of them works in synchrony with each other. Any imbalance will cause deficiencies that can make anyone depressed, tired, irritable, anxious and inattentive while the excess can lead to risks of abnormal functioning and perception.
The Catecholamines group includes Dopamine, as well as Epinephrine (Adrenaline) and Norepinephrine (Noradrenaline), which are mainly centered on energy, stress management, focus and motivation. They influence the inclination to take action and persevere, either towards attaining something desirable or avoiding something unwanted. This neurotransmitter group influences the drive to perform with enthusiasm, as well as producing feelings of arousal, which is a combination that strengthens motivation.
The strong connection between pleasure and motivation enables the brain to drive one towards tasks that are perceived as approved, good or right. Dopamine signals, for instance, predict the reward of a specific task. In moments of stress, they encourage the performance of needed tasks that obtain desirable achievements, and also discourage against wrong or unattainable tasks. The pathways of motivation within the brain are generally complex, but with safe and proper excitation this motivational system can have rewarding and pleasurable effects, such as having a stronger desire to be proactive, increased energy, and a feeling of cordiality.
