I unfortunately have to concede.
While serotonin and dopamine can be increased through goal-oriented behavior, which was going to be my main argument, I learned that oxytocin can easily be increased simply by cuddling with someone, hugging, or nursing your baby.
Sorry for the super short debate and wasting con's time.
waive this round of course
I win lel
Just wanted to say one thing that I learned about goals and happiness. It is smarter to break large goals down into smaller, even tiny ones, so you get multiple "shots" of those feel-good chemicals like serotonin and dopamine. This might be helpful for depressed people.
