HOW TO GET YOUR DAILY DOSE OF HAPPINESS CHEMICALS ?
When you feel good, your brain is releasing one of the happiness chemicals. There are four happiness chemicals, which are known as DOSE:
Each chemical has a job to do and when your brain releases one of these chemicals, you feel good. It would be great if they all surged all the time. However, it does not work this way. Once the chemical has done its job, it will turn off, leaving you with a desire for more.
By understanding how these chemicals work, we can better improve our overall happiness by tapping into each of the four happiness chemicals. Not everyone gets enough of each of the happiness chemicals. This deficiency can leave you feeling sad, depressed, hopeless and anxious.
Getting your daily DOSE of happiness chemicals may seem simple, but if you struggle with negative thinking patterns then it’s recommend to learn how to challenge automatic negative thoughts first.
