The Science of Happiness

Scientist today, teaches us that cells in your body have everything to do with happiness, and how to maintain that state of being. With every cell of your body, you have the inherent ability to manipulate and control the way you feel. However, not many people seem to know this, or even know how this works. Before we begin, you must understand what our bodies are made of. Our bodies are moulded out of 70 trillion cells that are found in the blood, the brain, skin, bone, eyes, hair, and in the reproductive system. Why is this important? Because every cell, no matter where they are located, are working together to make you feel a certain way.

Each cell reacts to electromagnetic waves (signals) and proteins (called neuropeptides) that come from your heart. The heart sends signals and shoots out these proteins in fractions of a second. Every cell is equipped with receptors to read the signal, which tells the cell which protein is allowed to enter, and then the channels (effectors) open up and allow the protein to enter. When the protein enters the cell, it creates the actual behaviour of you. So, are you interested on how do we manifest happiness?

The Human Heart

The human heart beats at 130 times per minute, sending blood, electromagnetic waves, and proteins throughout the entire body. In this process, the heart sends millions of “neuropeptides” to the brain.

Neuropeptides

Neuropeptides are small protein-like molecules that play a key role on how your behaviour functions. Whether you want to experience joy, happiness and love or sadness. Depression and hare, these proteins are the contributing factors to those specific feelings. Imagine each neuropeptides, programmed for feeling a certain way. If you choose the happiness neuropeptide, that is exactly what you’ll get.

The Human Brain

The neuropeptides are sorted in the core centre of the brain, called the Hypothalamus. Depending on which signal your heart is sending, the hypothalamus will release those specific neuropeptides to each cell throughout the entire body. So how does the heart determine which signal to send? Simply, by your perceptions of how life treats you. For example, think of some good thoughts, now imagine someone hitting your car. How do you feel now?

The Human Cell

Order to Operation

  1. The signal is sent from the heart (That acts as the primary signal, or first step, for the cell to react to), then the receptor reads what kind of neuropeptide to accept.
  2. The secondary signal occurs when the signal is received, and then the processor protein joints the receptor and effector together to prime the channel.
  3. When the correct neuropeptide floats near the effector, the channel then open up to accept the incoming flow. If the incorrect neuropeptide floats near the effector, the channel will not open up.
  4. When the neuropeptide enter the cell, they activate human emotions.
  5. The cells receptors behave like the human body does, the more you train it, the more it retains that particular memory like “muscle memory”. So if you send signals from the heart to the receptors to receive depressive neuropeptides, then those cell receptors will remember to receive the same signals from the heart.
  6. So “How do you send happy signals?” You have to believe life is wonderful, no matter what it throws at you. It’s important, because how you look at it, affects the way you feel. Science proves it.
