Must be the Serotonin

I'm thinking that I must be experiencing higher levels than normal Serotonin. Why you ask? Because, for the last 3 days I have looked at my butt and not though "UGH it's so big!" Yep, I actually have liked my butt. I wore my short shorts on Wednesday, a cute, short summer dress on Thursday, and although I call them my "fat shorts" I did wear them today, only because they are more work appropriate. I'm thinking this is a pretty big positive deal. Now, although it doesn't really matter all that much because one should love one's body no matter what size they are, I know I really shouldn't ever complain about mine. I am not a big girl by any means. Most would consider me to be tiny. I, on the other hand, usually do not. I consider myself "average" and I do not want to be "average." Damn you entertainment industry for making us all feel inferior!!!!

So back to the serotonin. I really don't know much about this hormone at all, but I do know it's produced during the day. I am going to say that I produce more on sunny days, and thus making me feel happier and prettier. Also, all this sun has been doing wonders for my skin! I love that once summer hits I have fewer breakouts!

It's proven that when someone does a simple act of kindness, not only do their serotonin levels increase, but so does the person who is receiving the act of kindness AND anyone who happened to witness the act. Yep, that's a lot of happiness from one simple act. So everyone, enjoy the sunshine where ever you are, and do something nice for someone.


  1. You have a very nice bum :P so there haha. And your body does indeed produce more serotonin on sunny days:

  2. Good to know! On both accounts :) I kinda figured about the sunny days as during the winter my mom always tells me to spend some time in the sun when it comes out in order to keep the "winter blues" away.

  3. Great post! Thanks for the serotonin information!
