Yes there is a nice correlation.
Positive thinking can help our body naturally release endorphins, giving us that euphoric feeling, the same way opiates do, but without the harmful side effects.
Even feeling positive about things, or believing something to be positive…or will work, does the same thing. Just like a placebo…where you believe it will help you, your body produces endorphins, and you feel better.
Along with positive thinking, other things that will produce endorphins are exercise, laughter and a little sunshine.
So maybe plan on taking a nice run on a sunny beach, while thinking positive thoughts and laughing…and you’re good to go!
