Euphoria is medically recognized as an emotional and mental state defined as a sense of great elation and well-being. Technically, euphoria is an effect,[1] but the term is often colloquially used to define emotion as an intense, transcendent happiness combined with an overwhelming sense of well-being. The word derives from Greek Template:Polytonic, "power of enduring easily, fertility".[2][3] Euphoria is generally considered to be an exaggerated state, resulting from psychological or pharmacological stressors and not typically achieved during the normal course of human experience, although some natural behaviors, such as activities resulting in orgasm or the triumph of an athlete, can induce brief states of euphoria.[1] Euphoria has also been cited during certain religious or spiritual rituals and meditation.[4]
