Happiness is not for everyone and not for nothing


Another good way to increase oxytocin is grooming, that is, self-care: cleaning feathers, licking wool, bathing. Virtually all animals in incomprehensible situations begin to wash. In animals with a developed brain, such as chimpanzees, mutual wool shuffling plays an important role in maintaining social relations (there is even a hypothesis that human speech arose to replace strokes with kind words and thus save a lot of time when trying to maintain friendship with the whole big flock). In January 2013, an article was published, the authors of which measured the level of oxytocin in the urine of chimpanzees after grooming13. It turned out that any shuffling of wool to each other raises the level of oxytocin among the participants, but it grows especially strongly if you are touched by not just anyone, but your close friend, with whom you always cooperate and spend a lot of time together. The applied conclusion is simple: in order to better endure stresses, more often lick yourself and each other. Pick in the nose and in the navel. Brush your hair. Do hair removal. Sleep around embracing someone good. Massage each other and scrub each other behind the ear. Smear each other with cream, lotion, scrub and what else the global cosmetic industry has invented. In extreme cases, get a dog or cat: interspecific grooming is better than no grooming at all.
And one more thing. Not all stress is bad. Sometimes everything is completely the opposite: it is stress that serves as the most effective prevention of depression. It works if it is controlled, not very strong and not caused by unpleasant events. Stress, I recall, was originally intended to help us fight or run. From the point of view of the brain, if you run somewhere, then you probably get away from the tiger. You need help by running a stress reaction: improve blood supply to the muscles, raise blood sugar levels and also (most importantly for our task) increase the level of endorphins, so that if the tiger bites off your leg, you will not die from pain shock. And if you really just run around in the park and the tiger does not catch up with you, then all these unclaimed endorphins are spent on euphoria - it turns out such a small and safe heroin high.
In the same way, the brain, just in case, releases endorphins in other stressful situations: in the bath, on the roller coaster, in the hole. And a generous portion of endorphins serves as a reward for blood donation - especially the first few times, until the brain has realized that this blood loss is not caused by trauma and it is not necessary to anesthetize it. Of course, the intensity of positive emotions from the blood flow is different for everyone. Someone jumps and hugs with everyone, someone then walks all day in a helmet and smiles, someone doesn’t feel anything special (I have a suspicion not supported by research that it depends on the intensity of the contrast between the previous mood and the new portion of endorphins - that is, unfortunate people receive much better reinforcement from their blood flow than happy ones. But for me personally, for example, this is the most effective way to become an impenetrable happy person for a couple of days - and this is not about altruistic motives (although it is certainly necessary to donate blood, it is always not enough), but in a banal and primitive brain physiology.
The point is always in her.

Happiness is not for everyone and not for nothing

  1. Statins for everyone?
    Familiarity with the latest reports on the use of statins causes shock. Not only did doctors begin to prescribe these medicines to all patients with elevated cholesterol, not trying to lower it with natural means, but now they are prescribed to patients with low cholesterol as a preventive measure, as statins help reduce the intensity of inflammatory

  3. Happiness
    Your happiness, freedom, justice, health and joy should be all yours. Health or freedom received from others is a debt that must be returned sooner or later if you do not want to become a slave or a thief.

    When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but we often do not notice it, staring at the locked door.

The rest are very close, we all know them, but for some reason “female happiness” in their everyday life,
  5. Production of happiness
    The amount of serotonin produced is highly dependent on nutrition. Like everything in the body, serotonin is synthesized from substances derived from food. The building blocks for it are certain amino acids, especially tryptophan, which comes with foods that contain large amounts of protein. In the modern diet, tryptophan content is extremely low. Our ancestors who ate wild meat

Please help me understand my feelings. It is quite obvious that you are afraid to fall in love again. This is because most of all you are afraid of the likelihood of new losses. These circumstances help you realize
  7. Could not the refusal of the spouses of mutual responsibility for happiness and failure lead to the emergence and development of a certain independence and irresponsibility of each of them and even indifference in the relations between them?
    Not taking responsibility for the welfare of others and being indifferent to others are completely different things. Not the mutual dependence of the spouses, but the desire of each of them for independence has a positive effect on the atmosphere in the family. You are clearly frightened by indifference or, as you write, irresponsibility in family relations. Irresponsibility is absolute indifference to feelings.

  17. What does the sacrament of marriage mean to you?
    In my understanding, marriage symbolizes the decision of a person to fulfill his innermost desire - to achieve harmony between the two principles of his essence, male and female. Consciously or unconsciously, we all strive for this harmony. Only with the harmonious combination of these two of our beginnings do we feel happy. We say that we are looking for happiness, but most of all we want to be loved. We only then
