Understanding Dopamine and Its Importance

First things first, what is dopamine? Dopamine is a chemical in your brain that makes you feel excited and pleased when you do things you enjoy, like hugging your pet, hanging out with friends, or munching on your favorite snack. Dopamine is also a key player in helping you focus, move smoothly, and even form memories for learning.
