What Is The Happy Hormones All About

How It All Started

It all started when two individuals together with our sheer passion for wellness, decided we wanted to make a difference in other people’s lives.

We had the idea of creating a lasting impact on individuals just like you reading this through wellness. It doesn’t matter how big or small of a difference it may be, as long as our actions can create a positive impact on those around us.

A One-Stop Platform For All Things Wellness

The Happy Hormones was created with the aim of simplifying those living in Malaysia who are looking to improve their well-being in terms of the body and mind, alongside helping people find answers, solve problems, and get inspired through our high-quality produced content.

We want to provide a platform of an extensive directory of Wellness business and services providers, tips and advice, along with the many related events happening in Malaysia.

We understand the struggle of finding the nearest gyms, running events, fitness studios, and many more. Thus, we created The Happy Hormones in order to ease everyone living in Malaysia in finding the best health-related services, products, events and places that suit their needs.

If you’re in pursuit of living a healthy lifestyle – we’re in this together!

Why ‘The Happy Hormones’?

Some people may think, in order to be happy, you need to be rich, have a ton of items and luxury goods, but at the end of the day – you can have everything in the world and still not be happy.

Let’s go back to science – in the human body (that’s you!), there are four primary hormones that determine a human’s happiness: endorphins, dopamine, serotonin and oxytocin. We need a daily dose of all these 4 hormones in order to feel good and happy!

All of these 4 hormones are related to wellness.

Hence, ‘The Happy Hormones’!

The 4 Main Happy Hormones


When you exercise, endorphins help to cope with the pain. That’s why we tend to feel good after a great workout session.

Aside from that, put on a comedy show and laugh your butt off!


Sense Of Importance
When you feel important, you'll feel good. This hormone is also the main ingredient in antidepressants.

Helping Others
When we use our precious time to help other people by providing solutions or writing articles and blog posts, naturally, our body releases serotonin.


Achieve Goals
When we achieve goals and accomplish small tasks or after a 20-minute jog, our body releases dopamine.

Eating Nutritious Meals
Eating delicious and nutritious food such as bananas, eggs, fish and chicken also boost dopamine levels in the body.

How is this hormone linked to unhappiness?
Well, if your body is low in dopamine, you tend to procrastinate more and have a sudden increase in self-doubt, including low self-confidence.


Physical Affection
When hugging someone, receiving a compliment, or getting a kiss from your loved one, you’ll feel happy right! Your body produces this hormone after these actions.

Oxytocin is more than just a happy hormone. It is commonly known as the “love hormone”. It helps to increase the threshold of pain, reduces anxiety and stimulates all kinds of positive social interaction.
