Raising Oxytocin Levels

Oxytocin is also called the "love" hormone and is associated with how people bond and trust one another. It explains why you feel happy to cuddle with your pets. It also helps parents bond with their newborn.

How to boost it: You can boost oxytocin by being physically or emotionally close with others that you trust. Reach out to a friend or contact you want to know better.

Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that plays a role in mood. It is important for reducing depression and regulating anxiety. It also regulates digestion, sleep, and bone health.

The hormone dopamine is related to motivation and reward. It's why you feel good to reach a goal or lack interest when you have low dopamine.

Endorphines are linked with exercise. They function as natural painkillers that help minimize pain and maximize pleasure, explaining why an athlete may be able to push through a race with an injury that they don't notice until later.

There are four main hormones that trigger the feelings of happiness: dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin, and endorphins.
