Looking for ideas on how to get energized?
Maybe you’ve been staring at the refrigerator, thinking of cleaning it, but just don’t have the mojo.
Maybe you want to get started on a work project, but your spirit is just not there. Here is a quick tip.
When you’re feeling the blah’s, your spirit needs buffing up. Go play!
Giving your self time to play breaks the monotony of the day. When you play your body releases chemicals called endorphins, and you find yourself laughing and feeling pleasure. Hormones are released instantly and your body runs on hormones on wonderful ways.
When you are having fun, your body will reward you by filling your reservoir with Oxytocin, Serotonin, Dopamine.
Oxytocin is referred to as a “love hormone”, and it is a beautiful neurotransmitter that helps you connect to others is a loving way.
Serotonin may be responsible for your mood. It also affects your ability to get a good night’s sleep as well as learning. When you play you gift yourself a booster that can lift depression, so you feel happier and less stressed.
Dopamine is what you get when you play, laughing and having a good time. It’s your own personal reward that increases the more you play. This beautiful hormone is one that will leave you feeling happy.
