A doctor who spends the whole day studying the gray matter inside our head, the brain, proves that only 4 things are needed to be happy.

- You should be grateful to your fate and everything. Feelings and emotions during gratitude increase serotonin and dopamine in the brain. Buprofion and fluoxetine are drugs that increase these, but they can be replaced with gratitude. This simple feeling of gratitude increases the release of serotonin in the frontal lobes of the brain.
- When people talk about negative things, sadness, anxiety, and complaints, they weaken the biological effects of these emotions on the brain. You don't have to tell anyone about it, but most importantly, you need to say it and relax your mind. When participants were shown photographs of people expressing different emotions and measured their brain responses, the first thing they saw was activation of the lymph nodes. was decreasing. In other words, it showed that when the brain was activated by seeing pictures of those emotions, the negative activity caused by the pictures was reduced when those emotions were named.
- It is necessary to make a decision. When a person makes a decision, anxiety and panic disappear. When making a decision, a goal is created, which gives the brain a pleasant feeling and affects, reducing the activity of the striatum that leads to negative emotions.
- During one experiment, people played a ball-throwing game on the computer. However, the act of throwing the thrown ball back was, in fact, not done by a human, but by a computer, but the participants were made to believe that they were playing with someone who had not told them. However, it was observed that the human brain perceives it as pain when the thrown ball is not thrown back. In other words, it means that a person takes rejection as painfully as the pain of a broken leg.
In general, relationships with people are very important in the brain. In this, the doctor said that he has scientifically proved that actions such as hugging, kissing, and liking loved ones have a wonderful effect on the brain.
