How does happiness affect the brain?

The pursuit of happiness keeps people motivated to live, as they are always in search of something better in life- Manish Chaudhary

Our brains are greedy for happiness as if happiness is hardwired inside our brains all along the evolution.

Inside the brain, human beings are designed to seek pleasure and avoid pain. Our brain makes it pretty sure to increase the chances of our survival as well as experience more happiness in life.

The logic behind this can be understood by the chemistry of the brain, which is assigned to support these facts:

Thus, when we see through our eyes or sense or feel anything, the signal from our eyes goes into the brain and the brain reacts to it, by releasing certain chemicals inside our body and into our bloodstream. These chemicals are called hormones and they make us feel good or sad, likewise.

These chemicals are called neurotransmitters and they are released from the nerve fibers which affect the power of happiness. They are

>> Serotonin,

>> Dopamine,

>> Oxytocin and

>> Endorphins.

The only keeper of your happiness is you. Stop giving people the power to control your smile, your work, and your attitude.

Serotonin is a neurotransmitter and it is made in the brain as well as in our gut (intestine). When serotonin is released in the body, it is circulated in the blood and all over our nervous system. Scientists call serotonin the happiness chemical because higher serotonin levels increase confidence and feelings of well-being.

Human beings are social animals and thus, being around people makes us feel happy. There is a scientific logic that serotonin is more free-flowing in your bloodstream when you feel important and valued by those around you.

This chemical helps you experience the power of happiness and blissful joy.

Moreover, it is a very natural and easy thing to experience happiness, you just need to have the right mindset.

Dopamine is released in your body as a part of the reward system. eg. After sex or after a good meal or whenever you have reached your goal or whenever you are getting a direct message from your favorite contact on Instagram. Ring a bell?

That is why Dopamine is called a reward molecule and this is what motivates and encourages you to spend more and more time on social media.

Dopamine is responsible for keeping us motivated to focus on a goal because of the rewards when the task is fulfilled.

Oxytocin is a chemical that provides us with feelings of calmness, safety in life, and trust. It helps us in creating good friendships and passionate relationships. Likewise, it feeds our happiness.

Endorphins act like strong pain relievers in our bodies. Endorphins are produced by the pituitary gland in the nervous system and they are very effective in minimizing our pain.

Endorphins also enhance our pleasure, as they are part of a reward system along with dopamine.

And this is how our happiness affects our brain in a more positive and healthy way.

Sometimes you have to keep your good news to yourself, not everybody is genuinely happy for you.

For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness:- R H Emerson

A study was conducted in a group of people and those who showed more positive emotions and were happy in life showed faster recovery.

iMoreover, It was found that happiness is very good for heart health as it regulates blood pressure. Happy participants showed fewer signs of blockage in the arteries.

Do happier people get less sick? Harness power of happiness.

Researchers have found that happy people stay positive and satisfied in their life.

The Happiness of life is the best defense against sickness.

There was an experiment conducted in which healthy volunteers were exposed to the common cold and flu virus. After that researchers found out that people who were more positive and happy and life were very less likely to fall ill. So, the study suggested that people who are “emotionally stable” and emotionally positive, could fight the common cold and other illnesses very easily.

It is known that people with “a positive emotional style” showed signs of decreased illness. But it is not such that people who are emotionally weaker will get sick more often. It is all in your state of mind.

How can your emotions influence your health? Key to happiness.

You simply need to understand that, when the brain is happy, it sends messages to our body and organs to function in such a way that the body is kept healthy and sound.

You can understand it as a drug or a medicine which is released by the state of your mind, that positively affects our physiology.

And the other way around, by simply changing your “state of mind” you can produce a very positive effect inside your body through the nervous system and hormones. Thus, successfully harness the power of happiness.

It is known that happy and satisfied people have better health practices, as they engage in regular physical exercise and get plenty of restful sleep.

What causes happiness in life?

Happiness is a Lifestyle, it is a state of mind and it is controlled by many factors such as:

>> The strength of our social relationships,

>> The habits that you adopt during the course of life,

>> Your happiness depends on your anger, your actions, and your loving nature

>> Happiness is controlled by Money, society, culture, and your state of mind.

Happiness is often considered one of life’s ultimate goals, but understanding what makes you happy isn’t always easy.

Our happiness can depend on the chemicals that are released by the brain, such as dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin, endorphins, cortisol, melatonin etc. Our genetics account for 50% of our happiness,

>> The circumstances account for about 10% and

>> Activities and actions we do account for about 40% of our happiness.

So therefore, the key to happiness does not lie in changing our genetic makeup (which is very much impossible), and also the key to our happiness does not lie in changing our circumstances, like seeking wealth, becoming more attractive, or choosing better colleagues (which is usually impractical)

But the key to our happiness lies in our daily actions and activities which are truly in our own control.
