Check out this video I did with Natural High (it’s a throwback from 2013). Natural High is a drug prevention nonprofit that inspires and empowers youth to find their natural high and develop the skills and courage to live life well. The latest scientific research shows that when young people find their true passions — those activities that uplift, motivate, and inspire them — and are supported in these choices by family, friends, school, and community, they are more likely to avoid drugs and alcohol.
If you are a “young person” I encourage you to set boundaries and find your natural high. What gets you fired up and stoked? What brings you joy? What are you passionate about? Find it. Follow it. Pursue your passion. Look to examples of people living a life of passion and purpose and ask them about their natural highs.
If you are a “not-so-young person” (haha!) you are never too old to discover your natural highs or talk to people younger than you and help them find theirs.
*Here is a helpful article that goes into more depth about our “happy hormones” dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin, and endorphins…as well as simple ways to tap into these natural high producers like sunlight, exercise, laughter, food, music, meditation, affection, pets, sleep, and massage.
