Meet Your Happy Chemicals: Dopamine, Endorphin, Oxytocin, Serotonin

You can feel good more often by stimulating the brain chemicals that cause happiness. It would be nice if they just spurted all the time, but they were not designed for that. They evolved for survival, though your brain defines survival in a quirky way. The experiences of youth and the survival of your genes are important to our mammal brain. That's why we do quirky things to stimulate our dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin and endorphin, despite our best intentions. You can build new neural pathways to turn them on in new ways. It starts with knowing the job they were meant to do. Dopamine is the good feeling of approaching a reward. Serotonin is the feeling of getting respect. Endorphin is a euphoria that masks physical pain, and oxytocin is the feeling of trust. All mammals have the same basic happy chemicals managed by the same basic brain structures. They are powerfully motivating…for a short time. Then they droop, and you have to do more to get more. If you run from these droops, bad habits will result. Accept these droops and your bad habits ease. It's not easy being a mammal. Managing your quirky brain is the challenge that comes with the gift of life. Your ups and downs will make sense once you read this book.

Your cortex sees the world as a chaos of raw detail until your limbic system labels things as good for you or bad for you.

The electricity in your brain flows like water. It finds the path of least resistance. Electricity doesn’t flow easily along neurons you’ve never activated before. Each time a neural pathway is activated, electricity flows more easily. Repetition develops a neural trail slowly, the way a dirt path hardens from years of use. But neurochemicals develop a neural trail instantly, the way asphalt paves a dirt road. Your neural network grew from things you experienced repeatedly and things you experience neurochemically

This wires us to survive in the world we actually live in rather than the world of our ancestors.
