Someone will call calmness only the absence of excitement, and someone adds to this satisfaction and a feeling of light joy of being.

Calmness is a state of balance in which feelings are in balance, there are no outbursts of emotions, and the mind becomes clear. In this state, a person is balanced and possesses himself. He can adequately assess situations and solve difficulties, but at the same time he will not be indifferent to those involved just enough to be creative and make well-thought-out decisions with a norm of self-care and a fairly empathic attitude and assertive behavior towards others.

If joy and anger are the excitement of the nervous system, then calmness is the balancing of the whole organism, and the first substance to be honored as an emotional mood stabilizer is Gamma-aminobutyric acid.

Gamma-aminobutyric acid, or GABA, is an essential inhibitory neurotransmitter that affects concentration and composure. It regulates the activity of neurons associated with fear or anxiety, allowing a person not to be distracted from tasks.

Another privilege of the chemistry of the dominant state of a calm, balanced person is restful sleep. This is also facilitated by the high level of GABA.

As a confident regulator that neutralizes the excitation signals of nerve fibers, GABA affects the normalization of muscle tone, emotions and reactions.

The next hormone that gives calmness a positive coloration is



OXYTOCIN is a hormone responsible for our social connections, a sense of belonging and belonging to something greater. When Oxytocin is normal, a person feels pleasant warmth and calm, akin to being in a mother’s arms. This is a note of security in the concept of calmness.

Oxytocin sharpens the perception of positive social stimuli. That is, if a person has a sufficient amount of this hormone, he will be more understandable and close to the positive aspects and concepts of life, and from the entire palette of social manifestations, his attention will be drawn to the good.

Oxytocin is strongly released from pleasant contact with loved ones, hugs and massage. As soon as you felt a wave of warmth from the confiding gaze of another person, or you yourself began to feel a warm feeling – at the level of body chemistry, you experienced a surge of oxytocin.

Oxytocin lowers levels of cortisol, a stress hormone, making a person less at risk of stress.

Staying in a state of calm, it is easier to work, perceive new information and communicate, adequately assess the world around you and yourself. All meditative and bodily spiritual practices, prayers, and austerities are dedicated to the tranquility of the soul.
