Dopamine, Endorphin, Oxytocin and Serotonin { What is happiness? }

From "Habits Of A Happy Brain" by: Loretta Graziano Breuning:

The feeling we call “happiness” comes from four special brain chemicals: dopamine, endorphin, oxytocin, and serotonin. These “happy chemicals” turn on when your brain sees something good for your survival (‬see #X below). Then they turn off, so they’re ready to activate again when something good crosses your path.

Each happy chemical triggers a different good feeling:

Dopamine produces the joy of finding things that meet your needs—the “Eureka! I got it!” feeling.

Endorphin produces oblivion that masks pain—often called euphoria.

Oxytocin produces the feeling of being safe with others—now called bonding.

Serotonin produces the feeling of being respected by others—pride.

(#X) Your brain is inherited from people who survived. This may seem obvious, but when you look closer at the huge survival challenges of the past, it seems like a miracle that all of your direct ancestors kept their genes alive. You have inherited a brain that is focused on survival. You may not think you are focused on survival, but when you worry about being late for a meeting or eating the wrong food, your survival brain is at work. When you worry about being invited to a party or having a bad hair day, your survival brain sees the risk of social exclusion, which was a very real threat to your ancestors. Once you’re safe from immediate threats like hunger, cold, and predators, your brain scans for other potential threats. It’s not easy being a survivor!
