Can we train ourselves to be happy?

A ‘DOSE’ of happiness can come from the neurotransmitters DOPAMINE, OXYTOCIN, SEROTONIN AND ENDORPHINS

How does happy happen? 

Can we train ourselves to be happy?

Yes... by MEDITATION you can. But understand the SCIENTIFIC reason


It’s all in the brain.
The release of four chemicals in the brain is the reason behind your happiness.

1.
Happiness is a broad term for many feelings and emotions. It can be pleasure, contentment, joy, feeling meaningful etc. You can call dopamine the ‘reward chemical’.
Next is oxytocin - you can call it the ‘cuddle chemical’.
We all love feeling confident and important. 

But before you thank your partner for your good mood, thank serotonin first! It’s the ‘confidence chemical’.
Finally, there are endorphins - the ‘pain killer’.

Science does say that we can take control of our happiness. We can train ourselves to be happy by knowing what makes us feel good and what will release these chemicals.

We do have the capacity to turn bad into good.


The possibility of getting a reward triggers a dopamine release and you feel good. And then again there’s a pleasure kick when you actually win the reward.

Say you’re playing a video game, you’re charged and excited to go to the next level, which is the reward and then you’re doubly excited when you win.

2.

It’s the feeling of trust, closeness and intimacy you have with people you share a good bond with. Two people giggling in love, a baby playing with a dog, a parent with their child - all of that releases oxytocin and makes you feel that cuddly happiness that makes you go aww.

Oxytocin is a neurotransmitter and a hormone that is produced in the hypothalamus. Concentrate on hypothalamus during meditation exercise.

3.

It’s released when you feel significant and worthy. And a lack of serotonin makes you feel lonely and depressed.

4.

Endorphin is the body’s natural morphine. It’s released when we feel physical exertion.

Can We Train Ourselves to be Happy?

That means you focus on positive events in life to feel good.

We’re all trying to find and chase happiness, but at the end of the day science says - it’s more or less in your hands!

In conclusion: You might not have a money tree, but you can have a happiness tree. DOPAMINE, OXYTOCIN, SEROTONIN AND ENDORPHINS hormones are responsible for your happiness. 

Many situations can trigger these neurotransmitters, but instead of being in the passenger seat, there are ways you can intentionally cause them to flow.

Practice Meditation....Concentrate on various psychic-centres and visualise bright colours....Feel good...Enjoy the peace within.

About  the book - The Enigma of the Universe:
Critical Studies and Research in the Metaphysical, Epistemological, Cosmological, Cosmogonical and Mathematical Aspects of the Universe in Jain Philosophy in the Light of Modern Scientific Theories and Western Philosophy.

About the author: Muni Mahendra Kumar holds a distinguished place of honour amongst such scholar-gems. On one hand he has made a deep study of modern science, and on other hand he is an expert of philosophy. He has the same expertise in both the Jain doctrine of syādvāda and the Einsteinian theory of relativity. While presenting the critical discussion of the present-day scientific theories and their philosophical interpretations, the author has elucidated vividly and wonderfully the doctrines of the Jain philosophy regarding the cosmos. 

His scientific and mathematical genius is as sharp as his philosophical insight. For example, he has explicitly shown that finiteness of universe is possible only in infinity of space.

The Enigma of the Universe is published by Jain Vishwa Bharati Ladnun (2010).
