Emotional Decisions Explained

Every day of our lives we are involved in an emotional warfare that often times require of us to make a reset.   

Where do emotions come from?   How do we get a hold of them?  Listen to today’s episode as Jake explains how emotions make decisions in our stead and how to change our decision-making process.

Here’s what’s been covered in a nutshell

From a physiological point of view, our emotions come from 4 very specific areas of our limbic system:

  1. The thalamus (responsible for what you hear, feel, see); absorbing information;
  2. The oblongata (responsible for anger, fear, anxiety);
  3. The hippocampus (it helps form new memories and convert short term memory into long term memory – most of our feelings come from here);
  4. The amygdala (regulates “the fight or flight” response).

How do you respond to a life stressor or to an attack?  The sympathetic nervous system is responsible for the fight - flight response.   The parasympathetic  system is responsible for the rest and digest function and state.

The body shuts down things to prepare for the battle and to get rid of danger, real or perceived.    

In order to be prepared for the unknown “act as if…” get trained for life’s unexpected events.  Also, get a hold of your feelings and emotions so that you can move in the right direction.   And remember that what you express on the outside reflects what you live on the inside.
