Come to the calm of a well functioning brain.
We have 4 major hormones in our system. We can work with these hormones to created better health.
Dopamine...This is the hormone that creates motivation and reward. It helps us to set goals and reach them. If we have low dopamine this can lead to depression, low motivation and loss of interest.
It is better to set new goals and create small steps to get to these goals. Your brain will reward you. Avoiding too much caffeine, sugar and recreational drugs helps to boost this hormone.
Serotonin...This is the mood hormone. It helps to regulate other functions. It can help to lower depression and regulate anxiety. It is related to confidence. So don't ignore your need for respect. Exercise can boost this hormone, it helps to challenge yourself.
Oxycontin....This is our love hormone. It helps with childbirth and bonding. It is also related to trust. This hormone is activated by kissing, hugging and sex. It is also activated by petting your pet.
Endorphins....This is our high that we get with exercise. It is a natural pain killer. It helps to up our pleasure. It also helps to eat dark chocolate, laugh, and mediate.
Find the humor!!
