If your high in Seritonin, you’re positive, confident, flexible, and easy going.

If you’re sinking in Seritonin, you’ll tend to become negative, obsessive, worried irritable, ad sleepless.

If you’re high in Catecholamines (norepinephrin, dopamine, and adrenalin are in this group), you’re energized, upbeat, and alert.

If your Catecholamines have crashed, you can sink into a flat, lethargic funk.

If you’re high in GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), you’re relaxed and stress-free.

If there’s a gap in your GABA, you’ll be wired, stressed, and overwhelmed.

If you’re high in Endorphins, you’re full of cozy feelings of comfort, pleasure, and euphoria.

If you’re near the end of your Endorphins, you may be crying during commercials and overly sensative to hurt.
