Being Naturally Happy

Updated: Apr 23

Being naturally happy, is helping your body get into a happy state naturally. A lot of the times we are given certain things to help produce this state, for example, medication we tend to gravitate to social media or TV. There are different holistic modalities that one can use, but one needs to always practise them in the correct way, because sometimes there can be outcomes that are not always, what we want and can cause more harm then good. So, always be sure of what you are doing, where you are receiving your information and is it correct. Always, by rule of thumb, ask the questions!.

We are going to start with endorphins, here are some of the top ways to help your body create endorphins naturally.

Endorphins are: chemicals (hormones) your body releases when it feels pain or stress. Endorphins are released by the hypothalamus and pituitary gland in response to pain or stress, this group of peptide hormones both relieves pain and creates a general feeling of well-being. The name of these hormones comes from the term "endogenous morphine." "Endogenous" because they're produced in our bodies.

So the First couple of things you can do, to create endorphins are:

  1. Exercise

  2. Playing Music

  3. Dancing

  4. Being Intimate / Massage and then there is number 5 which is:

"HUMMING" yip that's right, humming.  These natural opiates are generated when we hum. And mostly the times that we catch ourselves humming we are generally in a good mood :) There is data and reference that have shown that actively humming can cause the release of endorphins. However, the theory is still in practice and there may be other causes/factors that contribute to the release of endorphins as well. That said contributing to this idea - The question was put forward does sound reduce pain? And the answer by our Sound "OG" himself  - Johnathan Goldman was "Endorphins". So from the idea that humming can be used to create a distraction that causes our brain to forget about the pain -  we can speculate that perhaps when we make self-created sound we are also somehow able to create a vibration at the site of the pain. 

- So food for thought! and regardless, the fact that you can use humming to make yourself feel better and reduce physical pain is a pretty great benefit.

So I say let's get humming.
