first time posting here in this section, cause see i was looking for a pschology section and this about as close as i could get. if this is off topice feel free to delete.

anyway, so i have this funny thing that happens once in a while: if i spend like 1.5 hrs doing something that excercies my brain, like solving some problems or something (not mindless hw), then i get this like 'high' that lasts about 1 hour after. its like your brain feel all clear etc.

just wondering if anyone else has this feeling...?

or am i clinically insane? :rolleyes:

moved from Metaphysics & Epistemology.

edit: for future reference, you can post psychology topics in the Social Sciences forum. However, this topic seems more about sharing personal anecdotes than about psychology as a science, so it's more appropriate for General Discussion.

Thank you for sharing your experience! It sounds like you have discovered a great way to stimulate your brain and feel a sense of accomplishment. It's not uncommon for people to experience a sense of euphoria or "high" after completing a challenging task or activity. This could be due to the release of dopamine and other neurotransmitters in the brain that are associated with reward and pleasure. As long as this feeling is not interfering with your daily life and responsibilities, there is nothing to worry about. It's always a good idea to engage in activities that challenge and stimulate your brain, as it can have long-term benefits for cognitive function and overall well-being. So, keep up the good work and enjoy your brain "highs"!
