Wellness Shot: The Real Reason We Like To Be Scared

A lot of us enjoy getting scared and I wanted to look up why??

It turns out the same chemicals flow through your body when you get scared that happen when you feel really good like endorphins, dopamine, oxytocin, and serotonin. They focus us on immediate action which really is an escape from our everyday worries. 

Sociologists say when you are on a roller coaster or in a haunted house you aren't thinking about your bills or your job, you are in the moment and afterward, you feel like you've overcome a challenge. Physiologically it's very similar to our minds so we can get those triumphant feelings.
