We all know that Endorphins make us happy. It is a naturally occurring chemical neurotransmitter produced in the human brain.
The name is derived from two words: endogenous (from within) and morphine (a pain-killer).
Since endorphins block the pain receptors, they are also called as “happy chemicals” of the human body. When endorphins are released in the body of a person, he or she confronts a feeling of bliss, flow or euphoria. They are often produced and released when a person eats certain foods such as chocolate or spicy peppers, exercises strenuously, listens to music, and is in love.
This is one of the main reasons why people are addicted to the things they enjoy, as the release of endorphins makes them feel joyous.
I am addicted to endorphins and determine to get endorphins rush every day through exercise and healthy lifestyle. How about you?
