Happiness chemistry

The chemistry of happiness is composed of endorphins, oxytocin, dopamine, and serotonin. Endorphins are neurotransmitters that make us feel happy and are also inhibitors of pain, both physical and emotional. It is accompanied by oxytocin or better known as the love hormone. Dopamine joins them, and it is responsible for motivation and pleasure. And finally, serotonin, which helps us to feel calm and relaxed.
