Let's take a look at the happiness chemicals in the brain. Understanding how to activate these chemicals can help improve our mood in more natural ways.

Serotonin - The Mood Stabiliser: Things like meditation, spending time outdoors, exercising, and getting sun exposure activate this chemical.

Dopamine - The Reward Chemical: Celebrating small victories, eating nutritious meals, completing tasks, and self-care all activate dopamine.

Endorphins - The Pain Killer: Volunteering, exercising, being active, laughing, and watching good movies activate your endorphins.

Oxytocin - The Love Hormone: Things like physical affection and giving compliments encourage this brain chemical.
