How to Boost your Happy Brain Chemicals?

Our hormones play an essential role in regulating our moods daily and keeping us happy.

Happy Chemicals is just a collective name used to refer to the four hormones responsible for our moods.

These hormones are namely, Dopamine, Endorphin, Oxytocin, and Serotonin.

Dopamine is a hormone produced by the Hypothalamus and helps in bringing feelings of pleasure.

Endorphins are the body’s most common response to pain or discomfort. Known as a natural pain-reliever, this hormone is often released when engaging in high-level activities, such as running.

Oxytocin is related to innate feelings of love, trust, and empathy towards someone, intimate activities like an intimate touch, sex, cuddling, and kissing are also sufficient to release this hormone.

Satisfaction and feeling important are crucial for releasing this hormone (Serotonin), which is why it is known as the “feel-good” hormone.

These happy chemicals are essential for us to live a happy life. Being satisfied with your life and achieving happiness in small and large things is crucial for achieving an overall sense of wellbeing.
