Synopsis

Sometimes you are sad and at times you are happy. Have you ever thought about why it is so? The answer lies in your hormones. A set of hormones make you happy. Learning about that hormone can make you happy as it is one of the topics in Biology and answering that correctly will boost your score in NEET.

Hormones are chemical messengers that are secreted by endocrine glands and reach different cells via blood. These chemicals have various functions and among that, one function is to elevate your mood. This means when we say ‘we are happy’, we actually have our hormones working right. These hormones are ‘The Happy Hormones’.

The list of these mood elevators is quite big. These are Dopamine, Serotonin, Oxytocin and Endorphins.

Dopamine is a ‘feel-good’ hormone. It is released when you do something pleasurable.It could be eating favorite food for some, music for some, workout, traveling, etc. So it is better to dope your brain with something you love :)

Serotonin stabilizes our mood, feelings of well-being, and happiness. Additionally, it helps decrease our worries and is associated with learning and memory. Entrance examinations could be named ‘Serotonin exams’!

Oxytocin is the ‘love hormone’. The bond between parent-child is due to this wonder hormone. This hormone also promotes trust and empathy and feeling of security in any relationship.

Endorphins are natural pain relievers. These increase when you do activities that you enjoy the most.

These hormones are definitely produced in our body naturally but we should always thrive to keep the levels high and we can easily do this by altering our lifestyle.
