Training for happiness

(16 comments)

Today my interest focuses on ways to self improve. I almost always strive to improve, through simple repetition and training it's possible to shape one's own behavior to get better at life.

Below is a list of chemical naturally present and produced in the brain. Training and focusing on associated behaviors will improve your life.

Dopamine - Rewarding

Dopamine is the reward mechanism of the brain, this is great to leverage when building good habits.

Typically dopamine is released:

  • Upon completing a task (todo list)
  • During self care activities (meditation)
  • Eating (cooking)
  • Playing video games

How to leverage dopamine ?

The first two are especially useful to put to use when researching productivity improvements.

The last two can lead to somewhat negative behaviors such as over-eating and video game addiction.

Oxytocine - Love

This is the love hormone, secreted when practicing relaxing activities

  • Playing with a pet or baby
  • Physical contact holding hands, hugs
  • Give and receive compliments

From this short list it's easy to understand why this is important. Remember those activities are free and mutually beneficial.
