Loretta Graziano Breuning is founder of the Inner Mammal Institute and author of Habits of a Happy Brain: Retrain Your Brain to Boost Your Serotonin, Dopamine, Oxytocin, & Endorphin Levels.

You can wire yourself to enjoy more happy chemicals and relieve more unhappy chemicals at www.InnerMammalInstitute.org.
