The Internet is a wonderful and magical environment where all the information you need is to find, or should I say; everything you want to see is to see:) Not a bad invention right? I mean, if the Internet hasn’t been there, Get Addicted had never existed. And YouTube, Snap Chat, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter and all the other crazy things you can do on the Internet either. But there are a lot of things that happen to our brains when we are ‘online.


Happiness hormone

Our brains love to take in new information, mine does and I hope yours to. We want to know everything, right? Once our brains absorb new information, the substance dopamine release, also known as the happiness hormone. Once you are viewing a Wikipedia-page that you have never seen before, or a super cute or awesome video on Facebook our brain gives us a small dose of dopamine. And as we know; at the moment there is created a certain amount of dopamine in the brains, you’ll get a wonderful feeling of pleasure and joy;)

More, more, more
“just like a lot else in life”

And then of, course, like usual, we want just more, more, and more! And that’s why we sit for hours and hours surfing the Internet. In search of new information to get the nex kick with dopamine. But actually you refresh your Facebook, Twitter or Instagram homepage and aimlessly wander around on the internet. And before you know it, you’re more than an hour online. Recognizable?

It would be cool if we got everything we could read also that it either would be remembered forever. This is for most people unfortunately not the case. The Internet remains a medium which has made sure to distract us. We are constantly distracted by notifications WhatsApp, Facebook and other apps you have on your phone. And we have not even mentioned all the notifications that arrive on your computer, such as your mail. We get so much information inside our brains to carry the information of our short-term memory into long-term memory.

But luckily you’re not the only one;)
