Happy Hormones- Happy Mumma

H. Happy Hormones-Happy Mumma

Hormones are the chemicals that are produced by glands present in the body. It affects our body in over one way like it affects our mood, lifestyle, and relationships, etc.


A new mother has to deal with many things like breastfeeding, recovering, and taking care of the baby. She might get frustrated in between following all the chaos. It's equally important to keep your hormones happy while dealing with every task and not pressurizing too much on yourself.


There Are 4 Types of hormones that make us happy. If we focus on those well. Then, we’ll not feel sad or dull. We’re going to discuss those hormones which can keep a mother or anyone happy.

1.  Dopamine

This hormone is related to the brain reward system. Anything that makes you happy from inside and outside, activates dopamine. For eg, a minor change in your environment, a change in lifestyle, adopting healthy eating habits, etc. A mother can create a happy environment around her baby that slight change will make her feel happy too.

2.  Oxytocin

It is known as the ‘love hormone. The relations that we maintain with our kids activates it and the spouse etc. for eg, during breastfeeding, a mother feels happy that her child is taking breastfeed. It signals her mind and activates oxytocin which helps a mother to produce more milk naturally. 

3.  Serotonin

This hormone is more related to our eating habits. We should eat rich foods like omega-3, nuts, ghee, and lentils to ensure healthy levels of serotonin hormones. Don’t go for unhealthy products but add more protein and iron-rich foods to your diet to enhance your mood. A new mother should take care of her diet well to have enough energy to take care of herself and the baby.


4.  Endorphins

We know it to reduce stress and pain. A new mother can do this by meditating, journaling, socializing, etc. These activities help her boost her self-esteem. You can try laughing more, spending some quality time with yourself, heal yourself, etc. to ensure healthy levels of endorphins.

 You can try Mandala coloring, listening to songs, and anything that makes your soul happy. 

If a Mumma is happy, she will raise a cheerful kid.
