Meanwhile the very busy and popular Dopamine also increases response to sex , drugs , and rock and roll. Really, dopamine is signalling feedback for predicted rewards.

If you, say, have learned to associate a cue like a crack pipe with a hit of crack, you will start getting increases in dopamine in the nucleus accumbens section of the brain in response to the sight of the pipe, because your brain predicts the reward. It aids the liver,cardiovascular system, muscles, and various elements in the endocrine system.

Sufficient serotonin in the brain allows you to feel calm and optimistic and provides a sense of well-being, while serotonin deficiency has the opposite effect. Low serotonin levels or abnormal serotonin function is the most recognized underlying cause of depression.

Your body makes 5-hydroxy tryptophan, or 5-HTP, from tryptophan, and then converts it into serotonin. Serotonin is also found in mushrooms , fruits and vegetables and especially Yay!! Serotonin release is supposedly triggered by feeling important or significant so it is relevant who you hang out with. Sunshine is pretty helpful as well. Cuddly old mate oxytocin is also very much about your buddies. Both a neuro —transmitter and a hormone it is produced in the hypothalamus and secreted by the pituitary gland at the base of the brain Oxytocin is the reward buzz when you do a good thing and is happily viral even buzzing those that see the good thing happen.

Oxytocin then impacts on group behaviour generally and in a good way including happy group memories and like serotonin social recognition. Unfairly females usually have higher levels of it than guys, this may be simply that their nipples are more sensitive, the stimulation of nipples is known to trigger serotonin release. More likely though is its important role in childbirth and breastfeeding which are pretty fundamental to our future as a species.

That glimpse of immortality is a happy place for me. As bottled happiness Oxytocin is used as a prescription drug under the brand name Pitocin. Giving, at any level is a great trigger for serotonin and receiving even more.

But the best and most available is a great big hug. Just be careful of any resultant testosterone increases fellas, it apparently negates good old oxy. The main activity of endorphins is to inhibit the transmission of pain signals and happily in the process they also produce a high very similar to that produced by other opioids such as morphine. Equally happily for the fitness industry endorphins are currently, now at least, not a controlled substance. Laughter is also a great trigger and currently only banned in North Korea.

The smell of vanilla and lavender has been linked with the production of endorphins and studies have indicate that dark chocolate and spicy foods can lead the brain to release endorphins as do sex and good music. Even alcohol gets a nod but then so does stress and pain which are not high on my happiness barometer. Whilst excess Endorphins are linked with schizophrenia and manic depression the risks seem pretty much worth it. On the opposite end of the marathon running spectrum it seems doing very little may also be the key.

So much for all those self-improvement books. Tara Brach tends to agree. As a good Buddhist however, she takes it one step further. I am an Alpha male and a little overly driven to external activity.

Inevitably I have come up with yet another to do list, this time detailing some of the bounty from the hunt so far. Be more social- while carefully monitoring the 5 people who I spend the most time with who after all, are the ones I will become the average of. Great stuff, can still remember the smell! Crushing those crystals was sometimes a ritual, sometimes a chore and often cathartic! Used for giving some grip on slippery floors but you had to get the ratio just right.

Also good when crushed finely and mixed with a judicious amount of spit, you could glue your shoes to the back of your heel! Those babies were never coming off!

Downside, well, sticky and powdery and got into everything. When combined with the dust and dirt that accumulates on a floor it left a residue on your shoes that would morph into a blob that could swallow a small dancer alive! I was reminded of this today when speaking to a client about a chronically slippery floor.

They had cleaned the floor very well, still slippery. Had used Rozzie, still slippery in spots. I had an instant flashback of all the stuff I used to schlep about everywhere I went! Along with the usual assortment of various style of dance shoes, tights, leos, leg warmers, jumpers, bun nets, hair pins and hair elastics, band aids, toe pads, strapping tape, pain killers and anti inflammatories! If you left it too long you had to use a Stanley knife to lift the slip inducing layers away.

Clean soles and miracle of miracles, no more slip!! Tip for young players, always check your shoes for loose ribbons, floppy tap plates and accumulated dirt! A force of nature is an overused and consequently devalued term. Another descriptive Tiger Mum is often seen as derogatory.

Angela is in many ways both these things , and came from these things ,but in a totally good way. Today we investigate who she is and why she is. Along the way we discuss why Angela chose not to be an accountant hard Choice there Angela! The energy there has to be felt to be believed and even for that alone Angela we salute you. We will also discuss why sci fi is part of innovation, people , books and mentors that have been important and some of the tools including tech savvy interns that have made an impact.

The Rise of Superman: Gabrielle Gabby Robinson http: After over 50 countries and some pretty rough travel including top to toe Amazon and Nile Rivers. Take as little as possible!!!!! Take several passport-size photos of yourself to attach to visa applications — again, it saves you running around looking for a photo machine at the last minute.

This naturally includes your Mum and Dad but also a list of the numbers of your bank, credit cards etc. Also have copies in your internet email account. A quick way to do this is lay out all your cards and documents face down and take a photo with your cell phone. You can always access this money if funds run super low.

Equally a Berrocca tube with a couple of tablets on top is a slightly larger version of the same. Reinforcing existing straps with fishing braid not Mono will keep it airport security scan friendly.

Any more than medicine than that, see a local doctor or pharmacy, do however take a good supply of any prescription medicines you require and or contraceptives. Asian countries have notoriously small and poorly made condoms. Girls may consider a Diva Cup — a menstrual cup that can be reused throughout your trip. Sunscreen, toothpaste shampoo, soap, disinfectant etc. Good heavy zip lock plastic bags are perfect for these and also for a designated washable cloth. Wash your hands often and well.

A torch is a good idea either a cheap headlight type which equally works by hand or something super bright heavy and expensive which doubles for self-defence. A Swiss army knife or Leatherman is a great thing but if you are all about carry-on luggage the ultimate goal then you are better to buy a cheap utility knife on the ground and chuck it when you board a plane.

The same with a cup or bowl. They make sense for hygiene in not too sanitary eating places. A water bottle- Nalgene is a good brand. Be very fussy about what goes into it. I got so used to the taste of Iodine —the cheapest available purifier back in the day that water tasted odd without it.

Remember fruit with its high-water content can easily have the nasties that live in the water-watermelon being an obvious one. A short length of heavy cord such as venetian blind cord makes for a washing line and is generally useful. Luggage padlocks are Ok, zip ties will do the same job as well, but may piss off the customs dude. A padlock though can secure lockers, doors, and your belongings when needed. Make sure you have a suitably rugged case for you cell phone which means it can withstand being dropped and splashed with water.

Otterbox provide some excellent ones, not pretty but tough as. A personal safety alarm is something I have never bothered with, but something to consider particularly for solo girl travellers. They are small and easy to walk around with, and make a very loud noise if you press it in an emergency. Assume the worst of people, including fellow travellers, but not much so that it affects your enjoyment. Avoid those people that are most anxious to be your newest best friend. This saved me in Panama.

Polyester is light, wrinkle-resistant, and dries quickly. Disco dancers and flashpackers dig it.
