It’s been said before but it is most definitely worth saying again that each of us have within us the ability to increase our own happiness.
So why doesn’t everybody use it?
Well that my friend is good point to ponder. It is possible they do not know that these happy hormones also known as endorphins are a natural hormones that your brain releases when it senses happiness.
Maybe they feel that these endorphins are like fake news and although they give you a sense of happiness, satisfaction and
well-being it is not real and they have no time to be snookered by the idea of these natural abilities they are said to have access to.
Now that does sound possible, plausible, and quite frankly a high probability in this time of questionability. Which is why this information seemed relevant.
Knowing how they work is one side of the conundrum for sure so lets clarify the how.
First off theses endorphins are produced in the pituitary gland and the hypothalamus gland and release an opioid-like (drug-like)
secretion that masks pain with a natural analgesic and
tells the body that all is fine with the world.
What? That’s it? So easy and then I will feel like
all is well with my body?
Even better your happy hormones produce on their own that relaxed sense after a good meal, a good workout, a good laugh or great sex.
Hello? Is anybody listening??
So you want to know more now right? Thought so.
The second part is not the how or the why, its is the what.
What do you have to do to make this happen?
Well it has been found that acupuncture has the ability to
release these compounds and relieve pain, at least for
the short term, and to leave you with a wonderful
sense of wellbeing.
Also you can achieve these results by participating in the following areas like exercising, showing extreme happiness, eating good food and having sex all of which releases natural endorphins, and these endorphins make you feel happy and satisfied with life.
The more often you can stimulate your brain to release these natural hormones, the better you will feel, and the easier it will be to put yourself into this happy state of being.
Did you know you can even FAKE being happy and your body will release these hormones. It cannot tell the difference.
The one downside is that endorphins cannot be bought. It is only through your own effort can you bring them into being.
I can hear you now… sounds like work. I guess that is where it dies off in this amazon ordering civilization we live in. So sorry you can’t buy them…BUT if shopping makes you happy then…
You see, easy peasy, just had to figure out where it fits in.
When it is all said and done there is no downside to putting yourself into the position of happiness, either through laughter, sex, food or exercise.
Happy creates happy; it is a cycle that you should
never break and you should take every chance to spur
these hormones on.
Let them do what they do naturally; light their fire and reap the benefits!
