Out of all the chemicals there are four better known substances that are created in the body that signal i.e. give you the ‘feel good’ feeling. These are called neurochemicals and the most common ‘feel good chemicals’ are Serotonin, Oxytocin, Dopamine ad Endorphins.

Individually, they all play their part in creating the happiness we feel, but the main happy substance is Dopamine. Reduced production in these chemicals has been shown to lead to general feeling of sadness, lack of energy and even depression. In such cases, the doctor will probably rush off to prescribe some big pharma approved drugs to get you back on track.

An example of this are antidepressants, who have been shown to have even worse after – effects and can lead to addiction. There are, however, 6 proven things you can do to up your happiness level naturally and without the use of drugs.

  2. BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN! http://www.BoycottBitches.com I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least. This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.
