YOUR ONE MINUTE with DR. KRISSY DOYLE-THOMAS Neuroscientist and Professor 🧠

How to HACK your HAPPY BRAIN CHEMICALS👇🏽👇🏽

DOPAMINE is our reward brain chemical. We activate dopamine when we complete a task, engage in self-care, reward our progress, or eat our favourite foods.

OXYTOCIN is our love brain chemical. We can activate oxytocin when we socialize, play with a pet, hold hands/ touch someone we love, give a compliment, or show love in some way.

SEROTONIN is our mood stabilizing brain chemical. We can activate serotonin when we meditate or pray, go out into nature or expose ourselves to the sun.

ENDORPHINS are our pain relieving brain chemicals. We activate endorphins when we exercise, move our bodies and laugh.

I hope you find some way to engage your happy brain chemicals today.🤗
