I read recently that researchers have determined that prozac makes lobsters happier. When exposed to antidepressants, the serotonin level improves in lobsters - the lobsters exhibit more confidence and happy lobster behaviour. Among other things the lobsters stand up taller, waive their claws in a confident and ready to take on all challengers way, and are less likely to hide under a rock. The book argues that as thinking beings, we can change brain chemistry by our actions, act confident, and your brain chemistry will follow - or change the brain chemistry and your physical actions will change. The author argues that to some limited extent, brain chemistry and physical manifestation of happiness are a two way street.
Stand tall, shoulders back, smile, fake till you make it.
