A day at the SPA is one of the most relaxing things in the world. We all love applying facial masks, getting massages, getting our nails done… It isn’t a coincidence that all these activities make us feel good. The truth is that self-care is scientifically proven to make us feel happy. Just like taking care of ourselves, other types of activities also have that power. Here is how you can keep getting happy hormones every day.

Dopamine, the reward chemical, can be triggered by many different activities – including taking care of yourself. Completing tasks and celebrating little wins are great ways to keep your dopamine up, as well as eating tasty food.

Oxytocin, the love hormone, is another chemical in our brains that makes us feel good. It can be obtained by holding hands and hugging the people we love, playing with babies and dogs, and even giving other people compliments.
