Biological Basis for Happiness?

Biological basis for happiness?

This is speculation, but it seems likely that happiness may be something naturally selected for.
For example we feel happy after we eat, after sex, around newborn babies and cute kids, etc.
That would support eating enough food, procreating, and raising children.

    Just as we have feel good rewards for biological healthy behavior, we have feel bad fight/flight for negative biological healthy behavior. That seems logical, but it may be startling in that it connects our fight/flight and sadness with a biological basis.
