What Are The 4 Happiness Hormones?

We all want happiness in life. Are you happy in life? If not, have you ever tried to find out the reason for unhappiness?

What happiness means to you? That is very important to find the answer for the unhappiness. If you are not clear about what happiness is, it is hard for your wishes for happiness to come true. Remember, there is no magic solution for happiness.

Who is responsible for your happiness? Who can make your life happy? Some will say, money, others will say, friends, career and the list goes on. There is no end for it. There can be many reasons for your unhappiness, but you are responsible, and you only can decide about happiness in your life.

With positive attitude you can fill happiness in your life. Through forgiveness and self-forgiveness you can bring happiness in your life. When you forgive others or helping others you are spreading happiness in the world. You may have to surrender yourself, but remember, all surrenders are not a defeat.

You may be struggling with a disturbed mind due to many problems. Sometimes those problems may lead you to anxiety and depression. But you can easily convert depression into happiness.

Some people have the problem of keeping all problems in their mind and never share with others. Sometimes, your friends and family members may be helpful to solve your problems. Sharing problems with family is helpful for happiness.

When your mind is happy your body muscles also will feel relaxed. Stop dwelling on negative thoughts because negative thoughts is an obstacle for happiness.

Learn to make happiness a feeling of pleasure and positivity.

Short Story – Happiness

A man sat in the park after his morning walk. His wife also came and sat next to him. She had completed her 30-minute jog. They chatted for a while. She said she is not happy in life.

He looked up at her sheer disbelief since she seemed to have the best of everything in life. 

“Why do you think so?” 

“I don’t know. Everyone tells I have everything needed, but I am not happy.”

Then he questioned himself, am I happy?  “No,” was his inner voice reply. 

Now, that was an eye-opener for him. He began his quest to understand the real cause of his unhappiness, He couldn’t find one.

He dug deeper, read articles, spoke to spiritual guides but nothing made sense. 

At last one of his friend, a doctor gave him the answer which put all his questions and doubts to rest. He implemented those and he is a lot happier person now.

The Doctor said there are four hormones which determine a human’s happiness.

It is important we understand these hormones, as we need all four of them to stay happy.

1. Endorphins

Let’s look at the first hormone the Endorphins.

When we exercise, the body releases Endorphins. This hormone helps the body cope with the pain of exercising. We then enjoy exercising because these Endorphins will make us happy.

Laughter is another good way of generating Endorphins.

We need to spend 30 minutes exercising every day, read or watch funny stuff to get our day’s dose of Endorphins.

2. Dopamine

The second hormone is Dopamine.

In our journey of life, we accomplish many little and big tasks, it releases various levels of Dopamine.

When we get appreciated for our work at the office or at home, we feel accomplished and good. That is because it releases Dopamine.

Once, we join work, we buy a car, a house, the latest gadgets, a new house so forth.

In each instance, it releases Dopamine and we become happy. Now, do you realize why you become happy when do shopping?

3. Serotonin

The third hormone Serotonin is released when we act in a way that benefits others.

When we transcend ourselves and give back to others or to nature or to society, it releases Serotonin. Even, providing useful information on the internet like writing good blogs, answering questions on social media will generate Serotonin.

That is because we will use our precious time to help other people via our answers or articles.
