What is happiness?

Happiness is the byproduct of an increase in one of four types of Happiness Hormones: Endorphins, Serotonin, Dopamine and Oxytocin.

Each of these hormones, when elevated, increase the sensation we call happiness.

The pursuit of happiness, therefore, is really the pursuit of activities which elevate one or more of the Happiness Hormones.
