In this busy, crazy, and sometimes very stressful world, we often need all the help we can get to boost our spirits. We can look to others to make us happy, but, what we really need is to create the right chemical reaction inside our brains. At any given moment, our bloodstream is filled with a variety of chemical messengers called hormones. These messengers move through the bloodstream in search of their targeted receptors where they will deliver their signal. When it comes to emotions, there is more than one hormone that makes you happy, and that is what we will explore below.
It is said that happiness is a state of mind, and nothing could be truer. Happiness comes from within the mind, deep inside the brain where hormones interact with and bind to their receptors. The result of this binding can affect one’s health, emotions, and brain functions.
