I observerd myself and I can identify two different types of "happines".
First - called by me - After Pleasure :
Occurs AFTER (and last long) long activity that require from me engagement focus and effort for example :
- running 16KM
- learning for an hour things that I think are worthwhile
- reading book
- generally any mental or physical activity
Second - called by me - During Pleasure
Occurs DURING (and last short time) activity that DON'T require any engagement, focus or effort, for example :
- eating sweets
- eating tasty things in general
- having hot bathing time
- watching funny videos/TV
I wonder is there any scientific distinction between those two states of my body and mind. And assuming that endorphins are the hormones are responsible for the "oh-good" state, are different kind of endorphins are released while taking this 2 different activities (like studying for 1hour and masturbation) ?
Thanks for an answer in advance.
