Humans experience a variety of emotions, some happiness, the extreme sadness to joy and depression. Each of these emotions creates a different feeling within the body. After all, our body releases different chemicals when we experience several things that make us happy and each chemical works to create a different environment within the body. For example, if the brain releases serotonin, dopamine or oxytocin, you will feel good and happy. Conversely, if your body releases cortisol, while you are stressed, you will have a totally different feeling associated more with the body kick into survival mode.
What happens when we are thinking negative thoughts all the time? Or how about when we are thinking positive thoughts? And when we are not emotionally charged for positive or negative? Let’s explore how they affect our body and life.
Positive vs. Negative
Is there duality in our world? Sure, you could say that there is a degree, but above all who spend time to define and judge what is to be considered as positive and what we consider to be so negative. The brain is a very powerful tool and as we define what something is or should be, we started getting that result is manifest in our world. Have you ever noticed, for example, that someone driving can get cut and lose his cap, angry and suddenly feel negative, down and in a bad mood? While another person can get cut while driving and simply apply the brakes slightly and move on with their day as if nothing had happened. In this case, the same experience however you see it as negative, while the other does not. So it goes for positive and negative nature? Or do we define things as positive and negative?
Cut perceptions as much as possible
After thinking for a moment that you may realize that there is in fact no different positive or negative experiences of what we define as such . Therefore our very perception of an experience or situation has the final say as to how we will feel when it is happening and how it affected our bodies. Although you can always work to move beyond our definitions of each experience and move to a state of mind / consciousness / awareness in which we simply accept every experience of what it is and use it as a source of learning for us , it may not yet exist and so it is important to understand how certain emotions can affect our health.
