Well, we’ve all read about the #dopamine pathways involved in #habit formation and #serotonin swings associated with changing #moods, but my favorite is Oxytocin.
Why? I’ll tell you. Released by the pituitary gland, #Oxytocin is affectionately called the “Love hormone”. Human beings have a neurochemical signature associated with social bonds, creating #trust and forming #relationships. This is the hormone responsible for that.
The MRI image below showcases an image captured of a mother kissing her child. See how the brain lights up with Oxy? And fathers out there, please don’t worry – we can secrete exactly the same amount of Oxy as mums can!
I just love it when science comes alive in front of us to help us #growbetter and achieve a higher level of #performance.
If you’d like to more about the biology of #happiness and how to #hack your brain, then message me today. Let’s talk!
