After being under weather of depression, I managed to activate my so called Happy Hormones. It is normal that we experience unhappiness depending the level scale in our lives. However, if you are unhappy consistently for a long time, then it is better to consult a doctor. Our hormones that contribute to being happy can be activated by us and be interpreted by our brain to release certain hormones to our body. How did I simply activated my happy hormones? First, I do daily simple exercises such a s brisk walking. The release of serotonin activated by wondering around the city and gives pleasures to myself. Second, the good performance evalutation in my online teaching drives me to be motivated. The short-term goals are starting to be achieved by having simple action plans. The dopamine will be released along with the feeling of achievement in lives. Third, I had also activated my love hormone called oxytocin by getting in touch with my close friends. A simple hug and catching up in our lives blossom the new love bonded together for years. There are so many Happy Hormones that can be activated and it varies from one person to another. There is no limitation, since we can control our lives to be happy. From now on, I will make my hormones be activated to stay happy and attracts the power of optimism in life.

I know for a fact that exercise releases happy hormones. I experience that every time i do yoga and go for a long ride on my bicycle. In addition, I surround myself with positive people.

@Shavkat true. Nobody wants to be in the dark unless they choose to.

@toniganzon If this particular person continued to be in darkness, then he or she needs psychiatric assistance.

@Letranknight2015 It is really a good thing to keep ourselves busy to be fit as a fiddle.

@MGjhaud I think it is the right thing to do. I can't afford to dwell with so much sadness. I will just keep on smiling and learn to appreciate all things up in this world.

Happiness is subjective and what make some people happy, others don't. I am working towards becoming a happier person.

@zarlamain If we have the will to achieve it, some people remain stagnant just because they rely more on others effort.

@Shavkat Some mornings are harder to get the "happy hormones" aligned but I sure do try my best.

@marlina I know what it is coming from. Early morning errands are so tough to do. For instance, preparing breakfast meal for kids. I am still lucky for not being marriage level yet.

Serotonin is the key to happiness heheh.It's the happy hormone.I would just say no matter whatever the situation is,no matter how intense it is,always thunk about the good things you have in your life,good people you have in your life and most importantly *You* as a person is full of so much good values and strengths that is more than anything in this world. Think about all these things it will surely help you in relieving the stress.

@shubhu3 You are right, my dear friend. I always look back of what had accomplished in my life. For the nibblers who are too busy pulling me down, I just ignore them.

I activated my happiness hormones a long time ago when I stopped watching the news. :-) Now I focus on positive messages and feel much better for it.

I had also started not to watch TV news. I don't like to hear bad news. It is a great thing to be optimistic always.
