Are you ready to unlock the happiest version of yourself? Then you’re in the right place. We’re passionate about bringing you all the Happy Vibes, and it starts with boosting one important brain chemical: serotonin. So, here are five fun ways to naturally boost serotonin and improve your mood
What is serotonin, and how does it affect your mood?
Humans are always searching for happiness, whether it’s finding the perfect job, lover, or dreaming about holidays. But the cliché is true; happiness IS an inside job. It begins with brain chemicals.
Serotonin is often labelled the ‘happy hormone’. It’s a neurotransmitter that sends messages in the brain and is responsible for maintaining your mood and general wellbeing. When serotonin levels are balanced, you’ll feel calm, happy, and emotionally secure. However, when serotonin levels are low, you might experience mood swings, irritability, and even depression.
Whilst everyone has down days, and it’s not okay to feel happy 100% of the time, there are natural methods for boosting serotonin levels and improving your mood.
5 fun ways to naturally boost serotonin

- Dance it out
Did you know that dancing is one of the best ways of working out for your mood? Studies show that dancing releases feel-good hormones, such as serotonin. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a prima ballerina or have two left feet, just get grooving!
- Pamper yourself… you deserve it!
Massage therapy is a proven way to boost serotonin levels naturally, so show yourself some love with a self-massage. Or create a wellness spa at home for the full-pampering experience. You’ll be glowing AND smiling after your at-home treatments.
- Tasty Treat
What if we told you chocolate is good for you? Would you rush off a grab it as soon as you can? Before you stuff yourself with this much-loved treat, let’s clarify the claim. Dark chocolate is a delicious mood-boosting food as it contains an amino acid called tryptophan that your brain uses to produce, you guessed it, serotonin. Treating yourself to one or two squares of dark chocolate (made better in front of your favourite TV program) can lift your spirits.
- Spread the joy
Giving gifts not only boosts the mood of the recipient but increases your serotonin levels too. Why not spread the joy and gift our Little Box of Happiness to someone you love?
