Most of us measure happiness as a product of various components such as health, wealth and success. So, this means that if we are healthy, we must be happy. Why do we suffer from dissatisfaction and futility despite having succeeded in our work and efforts? Psychologists and biologists now believe that our biochemistry has a greater scale in determining how happy we are and how happy we can be. As Yuval Noah Harari in his book "Sapiens" said that happy happiness comes only from serotonin, dopamine and oxytosin.
Women on average are twice as likely to suffer from male depression. Their feelings and memory centers are stronger and bigger than men. If they understand how their brains respond to external stimuli, they can receive their emotions and feelings before they respond unreasonably. Being aware of how your brain works can help you keep in mind what's happening in your head and think common sense without making emotions prevent you. In the following paragraphs, we explain the biochemical factors fed with female unhappiness.
It's a brain center for fear and emotion. The Amygdala woman is more easily activated with emotional shades. Its amygdala reacts strongly to stressful situations or fun. These amygdala answers turn on the hippo campus, which is a memory center for memory storage, to mark information about this situation that allows her to remember this particular situation for quite some time.
2. Emotional Mirroring
Women can find more body sensation than men. This means physical pain or feelings that they consider are more intense. This body sensation helps them to monitor and feel painful emotions. Just by observing someone in an emotional state, a similar brain pattern is activated in a brainwoman and stresses the situation that is not even her. This is called emotional reflection.
3. Estrogen and Progesterone
Estrogen is an emotional brain material and progesterone is relaxed and lazy & # 39; hormone. Ovarian women who receive estrogen and progesterone that are most resistant to stress because the brain secretes more serotonin substances that make you feel relaxed and at ease. Serotonin changes in the body can cause frequent fluctuations in mood. Women tend to produce a small amount of serotonin than men. Serotonin deficiency can cause mental health problems most noticeable depression and anxiety.
4. Gut feelings
The insula area of the intestinal brain is larger in women. Since a woman's brain can easily monitor body sensation, her abdominal pain is also high. She gives a lot of attention to the gut, thinking about it for a somewhat longer period than you would, on average.
5. Sexual Gratification
Female gratification creates feelings of threat and trust towards affiliates. It increases electrochemical activity in the body and releases emotional substances like dopamine, endorphin and oxytocin. The nerve in the clitoris interacts directly with the satisfaction of women in the brain. If these nerves are stimulated, they will burst out of emotional substances, but if her allergies are not susceptible enough or if fear or guilty interfere with the stimulation stage, there will be no satisfaction. A woman's brain must be turned off to turn on sexually. If she is stressed or angry or her amygdala is at high levels, she would have trouble achieving an orgasm.
6. High cortisol level
Cortisol, stress hormone helps to control blood sugar levels and control metabolism. However, high doses of cortisol can cause menstrual changes and cause anxiety and depression. Mood fluctuations and changes in skin are also associated with it. Cortisol is made in adrenal glands and adrenal glands may increase cortisol levels in the body.
There are also other psychological factors related to dissatisfaction.
• Further maternity pregnancy, which does not provide adequate parental care, are more likely to be stressed and feared as adults. They are more likely to suffer from anxiety disorder than those who receive more care for children.
• Communication – Females have larger centers in the brain than men. Mental communication is of the utmost importance for a woman in connection. Connection through communication activates pleasure centers in female brain, increased dopamine release (emotional content).
• Conflict – conflict prevents negative reaction in a healthy woman. It creates stress and fear. Therefore, women are avoiding any conflict at all costs. The psychological stress of the conflict is silent for women.
• Depression after birth – 1 in 10 women will be stressed after birth within a year. It may be due to lack of emotional support, home conflict or previous depression.
Our biochemical system determines our happiness. It has evolved in such a way to keep happiness stable, either too sad or too happy. We could find instant pleasure, but it's coming soon and we're back to be like we were before. But we all have different biochemical systems. People born with a cheerful biochemical system are blessed with great happiness. They may lose everything and everyone, going through many persecutions but they will be happy. People born with dark biochemistry will find it hard to be happy, even if their lives are perfect. It is difficult for us to break our biologically specific limitations. If we can change our biochemical system, we can change our happiness levels.
