Do you love fall most of all?
There’s a good reason why….
Anthropologist Dr. Helen Fisher says there is a uniqueness about fall, that comes from the cooler weather, the changing leaves, and the rituals of carving pumpkins or trick-or-treating.
These “novelties” have been shown to trigger the feel-good chemical dopamine in our brain. Dopamine is the same chemical that gets released when we eat chocolate, win money, or fall in love. And that increased dopamine gives us more energy, motivation, and optimism.
