Go, manufacture some happiness!! (blog marathon post 23)
So I shared the above photo from Inkology today on my Facebook. The last I checked the abov picture had got 24,000 shares! Which means it has struck a deep chord with most people.
When we spend time with people we love, there are chemical changes that happen in the brain. Our bodies release Oxytocin --feel-good-hormone. When we are in love too, our bodies release vast amounts of oxytocin. From a purely Darwinian point of view, this occurrence has evolved over the years as we need to bond for the survival of the species.
I have just had my one hour dose of oxytocin just now. Had a long long conversation with someone I totally love. And I am going to be seeing him tomorrow after two whole weeks of missing him.
I am waiting. :)
And so is my husband :)
No--am not going to tell you who he is. But he is someone special.
Hope you got your daily dose of happiness today. If you didn't just call up that person you love. Forget 'whose turn' it is to call. Have a nice conversation with them. Call up your parents. Call up your grand-parents if you are fortunate enough to have them.
Go spread some oxytocin around.
The World needs happiness--and yes, you can help manufacture some :)
Buy my books--they are sure to make you feel good :) http://is.gd/preetibooks
