The happiness hormones and the many activities that will help those hormones do their job better.

You don't have to rely on people to always make you happy because they are not always around. It is a blessing that God created us in such a way that our minds help us be happy. There are four main happiness hormones and several activities that will help those hormones do their job better.

Hormone: definition

Before we get into the tasks of hormones, let's define what hormones are. Hormones are chemicals that act like molecules in the body. After they are made in one part of the body, they travel to other parts where they help control how cells and organs do their work.

The primary function of hormones is to communicate between two glands or between a gland and an organ. Although hormones are involved in many important things in the body such as heart rate and digestion, most people think that they control mood and feelings of well-being and happiness. This article focuses on those chemical messengers that help us feel satisfied, happy, and entertained.

The following four hormones regulate our mood, promote positive emotions, and make us happy. They are all happy hormones that travel through the bloodstream to various organs and tissues. Each hormone has a special job and does what it was designed to do.

Some hormones eliminate anxiety and prevent depression. Others elicit pleasure, joy, connectedness, and confidence. One of the very important things about happy hormones is that people have a huge impact on them based on the choices they make.

1. Serotonin

Most people have heard of serotonin, but they may not understand exactly what this particular hormone does. In short, serotonin is the hormone that helps regulate mood as well as sleep, appetite, digestion, learning ability, and memory. There are some foods that can boost serotonin and help keep people happy.

Add more probiotic foods to your diet. They support the good bacteria that you need. Some foods that produce serotonin are apples, cranberries, citrus fruits, berries, artichokes, mushrooms, barley, potatoes, wheat, oats, endive, beets, onions, garlic, rye, legumes, and pasta.

Your body needs about 30 grams of fiber from food each day. To achieve this, eat meat and fats in moderation. Foods that will help you get the required amount of fiber include sunflower seeds, cod fish, salmon, beans, potatoes, eggs, oats, milk, chickpeas, wheat, cheese, beef, quinoa, chicken and turkey.

2. Dopamine

Dopamine is known as the "feel-good" hormone. It's an important part of your brain's reward system. Dopamine keeps you happy and alert. Associated with pleasant sensations. It helps with learning, memory, attention, motor system function, motivation, rewards, and decision-making, and dopamine is naturally released when you think about food even before you consume it. 

3. Oxytocin

When people give it to others, the hormone oxytocin is released. It results in warm feelings, connection to others, and euphoria. Oxytocin is often called the "love hormone." This is because it helps promote trust, empathy, and bonding in relationships. It is the hormone commonly associated with physical affection such as cuddling and hugging. Oxytocin also helps reduce stress and calm the nervous system. This hormone is released in caring relationships, especially within a loving community. 

4. Endorphins

Endorphins are called runner's hormones because they block pain during orgasm production. This hormone is the body's natural pain reliever that is produced in response to stress or discomfort.

Endorphins make you happy, but only after you feel pain. Endorphins are the body's natural morphine that causes euphoria. The "runner's high" is caused by a large rush of endorphins. This is why some people are "addicted" to running.

Sun light:

 More hormones are released when you are outside on a sunny day than when you are staying indoors.
