A few years ago I wrote a series of posts about happiness hormones and how they affect Daygame. That was all based on an interesting book I read: Habits of a Happy Brain by Loretta Breuning. Recently a friend recommended another, similar book, to me: The Molecule of More by Daniel Lieberman and Michael Long. … Continue reading Daygame Dopamine Revisited (The Molecule of More)
Over the first half of 2018 it has been made apparent to me that there are two ways to practice Daygame: high energy (HE) and low energy (lE) (blog posts inspiring this one: here and here). Both have different aims, structure, levels of enjoyment, and even physiological experience. So as the British heatwave rumbles on … Continue reading High Energy and Low Energy Daygame

Contrast … Continue reading Can Vibe-Free Pickup Exist?

I wrote this series because a) I love trying to find the “why” behind the what, and b) this stuff allows you to psychologically separate yourself from what you experience, thus allowing greater mental control. Check out the old posts for serotonin and dopamine and the … Continue reading Daygame Endorphins (and Beginner’s State)

Read Habits of a Happy Brain by Loretta Breuning for a bigger and better breakdown, but I’ll go through the Game applications of serotonin I can think … Continue reading Daygame Serotonin
