Feelings and Emotions

Posted on: February 19, 2014

Feelings and emotions are the moods and responses we have to internal and external sensations. They are based on outer influences and inner perceptions.

We sense things that elicit our personal reactions. And our responses to what we sense affect us physically.

When you watch a scary movie, your pulse races and your nervous system speeds up. When you listen to relaxing music, your pulse slows and your nervous system is soothed.

When you sit in traffic on your way to an important meeting, you feel “fight or flight” and can do little about it, except to just sit there and wait out the situation.

Are you going to let yourself get stressed out, or are you going to take control of your responses?
