Are Emotions and Feelings the Same? (Video) – Episode 33 of Your Weekly Dose of Life-Work Balance
In this week’s video, I talked about the differences between emotions and feelings, something that my clients often mix up because they don’t really know what is causing them fear or tension and what they can do to get unstuck. Watch below!
The words “emotions” and “feelings” are often used interchangeably but they are not the same. And when you learn about them and the effects they can have, you can modify your behavior and make better decisions, living – and working – better.
How do emotions happen? How do feelings happen? And how can they influence our thoughts?
Watch the video to understand the differences so that you can become more aware of how you feel, why you feel that way, and take the appropriate action that can make a difference in your life. I also shared some useful tips.
When I work with my clients, they learn that there are no good or bad emotions; they’re just a way that their body reacts to the environment around them. The best solution is to control the reactions to their emotions, that is their feelings. They stop inhibiting, ignoring, or blaming their emotions for how they live. They listen to their bodies, they accept their emotions, they become compassionate, they understand, they reframe, and they thrive. The process is not easy, and it doesn’t happen quickly, but working with a coach like me can help them make progress, day after day.
If you think you need help with gaining more control of your emotions and feelings, you may be interested in my program REFRAME & THRIVE, focused entirely on stress, anxiety, and burnout. It’s a 6-week program that will help you:
