Are you or someone you know affected by addictions? It’s interesting to think about this concept introduced as “bonding”. When these bonds (career, relationships, community, etc) fail or break down what unhealthy habits do you tend to bond to? What are the things that make you feel like you can’t bare to be present in your life? What steps can you take to rediscover purpose, bonds and relationships in your life and with the wider society?
I do think that there is more going on neurologically than has been addressed in this tedtalk. However, there are some good pieces for us to reflect on here.
