Meaningful Living Through Mindfulness – Part 3


SKU: course-24 Category:


For most people feelings and emotions are very much the same. Naturally, we would perceive them as synonyms; two words with the same meaning. However, even though they are dependent on each other, emotions and feelings are rather different things. Emotions describe conscious physiological states and are generated subconsciously. By contrast, feelings are subjective experiences of emotions and are driven by conscious thoughts and reflections. There are many different types of emotions that have an influence on how we live and interact with others. At times, it may seem as if we are ruled by these emotions. The choices we make, the actions we take, and the perceptions we have are all influenced by the emotions we experience at any given moment. While improving mindfulness is helpful as an intervention between our emotions and our reactions, it won’t and should not prevent us from feeling emotions at times. We need to understand how we feel, why we feel, and what to do with those feelings. This is where mindfulness is a great tool.
