    *4 Hormones* which determine a *human's happiness.* Worth reading

    As I sat in the park *after* my *morning walk,*
    My wife came and slumped next to me.
    *She had completed* her 30-minute jog. *We chatted* for a while. She said *she is not happy* in life. I looked up at her with sheer disbelief since she seemed to have the best of everything in life.
    *"Why do you think so?"*
    "I don't know. Everyone tells I have everything needed, *but I am not happy.*
    "Then I questioned myself, *am I happy? "No,"* was my inner voice reply.
    Now, that was an *eye-opener for me.*
    I began my quest to *understand the real cause* of my *unhappiness,*
    I couldn't find one.

    I dug deeper, *read articles,* spoke to life coaches but nothing made sense.
    *At last my doctor* friend gave me the answer which put all my questions and doubts to rest.
    *I implemented* those and will say I am *a lot happier person.*

    She said, *there are four hormones* which determine a *human's happiness -*
    1. *Endorphins,*
    2. *Dopamine,*
    3. *Serotonin,*
    4. *Oxytocin.*
    It is important we *understand these hormones,*
    as we *need all four* of them *to stay happy.*

    Let's look at the *first hormone* the *Endorphins.*
    *When we exercise, the body releases Endorphins.*
    This hormone helps the body cope with the pain of exercising. We then *enjoy exercising* because these Endorphins will make us happy.
    *Laughter is* another good way of *generating Endorphins.*
    We need to spend *30 minutes exercising* every day, read or *watch funny stuff* to get our day's dose of Endorphins.

    *The second hormone is Dopamine.*
    In our journey of life, we accomplish many *little and big tasks, it releases* various levels of *Dopamine.*
    *When we get appreciated for our work at the office or at home,* we feel accomplished and good, that is *because it releases Dopamine.*
    This also explains *why* most *housewives* are *unhappy* since they *rarely* get *acknowledged* or appreciated *for their work.* Once, we join work, we *buy* a car, a house, the latest gadgets, a *new house* so forth. In each instance, it *releases Dopamine* and we become happy.
    Now, do we realize why we become happy when we shop?

    *The third hormone Serotonin* is released when we *act in a way that benefits others.*
    When we transcend ourselves and give back to others or *to nature or to the society, it releases Serotonin.* Even,
    providing useful information on the internet like *writing information* blogs, answering peoples questions on Quora or *Facebook groups will generate Serotonin.*
    That is *because* we will use our *precious time to help other* people via our answers or articles.

    *The final hormone is Oxytocin,*
    is released *when* we become *close to other human* beings.
    When we *hug our friends* or family *Oxytocin is released.*
    The *"Jadoo Ki Jhappi"* from Munnabhai *does really work.*
    Similarly, when we *shake hands* or put our *arms around* someone's shoulders, various amounts of *Oxytocin is released.*

    So, it is simple, we have to *exercise every day* to get *Endorphins,*
    we have to *accomplish* little *goals* and get *Dopamine,*
    we *need to* be *nice* to others to *get Serotonin* and
    finally *hug our kids,*
    friends, and families to *get Oxytocin* and we will *be happy.*
    *When we are happy, we can deal* with our challenges and *problems better.*

    Now, we can understand *why we need to hug a child who has a bad mood.*

    So in order to feel more and more *happy* day by day ...

    1.*Motivate ourselves to play and have some fun*

    2. *Appreciate others* for any small or big achievements

    3. *Inculcate sharing* habit through you to others

    4. *Hug* your family, friends......

    *Have a Happy Life

    Nice. I am ready to hug & shake the world. Let it be kind and come facilitating my hug with my shaky hands. Anything end with sound “sin” seems to be doing a world of good to humans.
    Thanks and Regards.
