Summary: Therapists to talk about “dopamine menus” to help you get stuff done

  • Name: Carolyn Steber Bustle
  • Category: Lifestyle and Fitness
  • Email: [email protected]
  • Media Outlet: Bustle
  • Deadline: 8:00 PM EST – 9 July

Query: This is a wellness article for Bustle called “What To Know About Dopamine Menus”. If you have ADHD or if you struggle with motivation, a dopamine menu serves as a list of ideas to get you up and moving, whether it’s “make a coffee” or “walk your dog.” It might also suggest dopamine-spiking activities, like dancing. It’s simple but it jogs the brain into action. If you are a therapist, please see my questions about it below!

  1. What is a dopamine menu? Please explain what it is/what it’s meant to do.
  2. What are some things you might find on a dopamine menu?
  3. How does a dopamine menu serve as motivation? Please explain what it does to the brain. (Does it actually provide dopamine? Does it inspire ideas?)
  4. Who might benefit from a dopamine menu? (Someone with ADHD? Someone who feels unmotivated?)
  5. Can you share some suggestions for setting one up? Should you have a morning menu, afternoon menu, etc? What can you put on it?
  6. Would you say dopamine menus work? Are they useful?

Requirements: Therapists. Thank you!
