What creates happiness in the brain
  • Dopamine: The happy chemical that our brain releases when we see reward or pleasure in sight.
  • Oxytocin: A hormone and a neurotransmitter, it gets released when we bond, feel love, and trust the people around us.
  • Serotonin: It is experienced when we feel self-respect, confidence and importance.
  • Endorphin: This neurotransmitter gets released to help us cope with physical pain.
  • Gratitude And Joy

    Having an attitude of gratitude makes us more appreciative and trusting, gives us better self-esteem and helps us bounce back from stress.

    Embrace the simple experiences and pleasures, otherwise, you may take them for granted and these are often what top up our feelings of joy. Also, be more present, it makes simpler things more joyful.
