What you get with meditation

You can expect these “happy hormones” from a meditation:

  • Dopamine. Also known as the “feel-good” hormone, dopamine is a hormone (and neurotransmitter) that’s an essential part of your brain’s reward system. Dopamine is associated with pleasurable sensations, along with learning, memory, motor system function, and more.

  • Serotonin. This hormone (and neurotransmitter) helps regulate your mood as well as your sleep, appetite, digestion, learning ability, and memory.

  • Oxytocin. Often called the “love hormone,” oxytocin is essential for childbirth, breastfeeding, and strong parent-child bonding. This hormone can also help promote trust, empathy, and bonding in relationships. Oxytocin levels generally increase with physical affection like kissing, cuddling, and sex.

  • Endorphins. Endorphins are your body’s natural pain reliever, which your body produces in response to stress or discomfort. Endorphin levels also increase when you engage in reward-producing activities, such as eating, working out, or having sex.
