The stress hormone cortisol can interfere with neurotransmitter release, including endorphins, oxytocin, and dopamine. Anxiety and mood issues may result from this. However, the relationship is reciprocal, so mood and emotional well-being are positively impacted by activities that increase these feel-good brain chemicals. Nutritionist Marina Wright wrote that it can serve as a protective barrier against the damaging effects of stress by regulating cortisol levels.
Dopamine might be released when we pursue interests and participate in activities that make us feel accomplished. 
Increased serotonin results from mindfulness practices, exposure to natural light, and time spent in the great outdoors. 
The release of oxytocin can be aided by engaging in social activities, meeting cheerful individuals, and performing random acts of kindness. 
Recreational and enjoyable activities as well as physical activity might increase endorphin release.
