    Happiness Is Not In Chemistry: How Hormones Affect A Person’s Mood

    Happiness Is Not In Chemistry: How Hormones Affect A Person’s Mood

    The word "hormone" itself comes from the Greek root, meaning "to induce", not without reason is the notion that these substances act in the same way on the body as the gas pedal - on the car engine. Meanwhile, hormones can affect the functions of the body, or they can simply reflect them. If, in a good mood, the concentration of a substance in the blood increases, this does not mean that it creates positive emotions. And even if it really stimulates a certain function, this effect is usually more complicated than the simple dependence “more hormone - stronger psychological reaction”.

    Spirituality & medication is such a divisive topic nowadays, even though it needn’t be. It is a sad fact that there are people out there who so staunchly refuse to accept that the two can mix in such a way that you CAN be spiritual whilst being on some form of medication. Now in this article, the medication we will be talking about in general includes all aspects of health - from physical to mental and emotional.

    The power of the number 10 to combat panic attacks and anxiety

    The power of the number 10 to combat panic attacks and anxiety

    Most everyone has probably heard someone say that when you are angry count to 10 before you react. Certain exercises are done in sets of 10 repetitions and both the Bible and numerology indicate that 10 is a number of completion. Antibiotics are often given in a 10 day supply and things are often judged on a scale of one to 10. This number can also be beneficial when trying to prevent your body from responding to stress.
