Eleanor Roosevelt has rightly said that “Happiness is not a goal; it is a by-product.” Yes, happiness is a byproduct of our emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy. You experience joy when your brain, releases certain chemicals called neurotransmitters.
The evolutionary biology ensures that everything necessary for your survival, makes you feel good. Your brain is a wellspring of self-produced neurochemicals that turns the struggles of life into pleasure and make you feel happy when you achieve them.
The feeling of happiness is related to certain chemicals in your brain called neurotransmitters. When released they transmit a message from one neuron to another nerve, cell, organ or tissue. In this entry, we’ll talk about nine brain molecules linked to happiness and efficient ways to boost them.
