Oxytocin – Known as the maternal hormone, but also arises when we have physical contact with another human. 

Serotonin – A mood regulator related to happiness. Lowered levels are noted in people with depression. 

Endorphins – Reduces pain, boosts pleasure and overall gives us a feeling of wellbeing. 

Cortisol – This chemical controls your fight or flight and can leave you feeling fearful and drained if not managed. It also manages blood sugar, metabolism & inflammation.
