You aren't at the mercy of your emotions -- your brain creates them

You aren't at the mercy of your emotions -- your brain creates them | Brave and Open Hearts | Scoop.it
The words we use to describe our emotions affect how we feel, says historian Tiffany Watt Smith, and they've often changed (sometimes very dramatically) in response to new cultural expectations and ideas. Take nostalgia, for instance: first defined in 1688 as an illness and considered deadly, today it's seen as a much less serious affliction. In this fascinating talk about the history of emotions, learn more about how the language we use to describe how we feel continues to evolve -- and pick up some new words used in different cultures to capture those fleeting feelings in words.

Atul Gawande: What Matters in the End, by On Being

Atul Gawande: What Matters in the End, by On Being | Brave and Open Hearts | Scoop.it
Atul Gawande practices general and endocrine surgery in Boston, is a professor at Harvard Medical School, a writer for the New Yorker, and author of "Being Mortal." Through his work Dr. Gawande opens a new conversation about what dying has to do with living, and his role as a medical doctor in ensuring not only health and survival, but enabling his patients' well-being. In this interview, Dr. Gawande explores what it means to be human - a physical and spiritual being - noting, "being mortal is about the struggle to cope with the constraints of our biology, with the limits set by genes and cells and flesh and bone."

The New Science of Empathy and Empaths (drjudithorloff.com)

The New Science of Empathy and Empaths (drjudithorloff.com) | Brave and Open Hearts | Scoop.it

Empathy is when we reach our hearts out to others and put ourselves in their shoes. However, being an empath goes even farther. Like many of my patients and myself, empaths are people who’re high on the empathic spectrum and actually feel what is happening in others in their own bodies.

 

As a result, empaths can have incredible compassion for people–but they often get exhausted from feeling “too much” unless they develop strategies to safeguard their sensitivities and develop healthy boundaries.

In my book, “The Empath’s Survival Guide” I discuss the following intriguing scientific explanations of empathy and empaths. These will help us more deeply understand the power of empathy so we can utilize and honor it in our lives.

The ‘Yes-Brain’ Approach to Parenting and Life

The ‘Yes-Brain’ Approach to Parenting and Life | Brave and Open Hearts | Scoop.it
Teach your kids these powerful skills, so they can dynamically engage their world.

 

4. Empathy. This fourth foundation of living with a Yes-Brain approach to life can also be taught to children by their parents. Empathy has at least five facets:

Empathic resonance is how we tune into the emotional state of another and feel, to some degree, their feelings. That’s how we resonate with someone else, and how we join with others, but do not become the other – we remain differentiated even as we are linked.Empathic understanding is how we make sense of another’s inner thoughts and feelings.Perspective-taking is how we try to see from another’s point of view.Empathic joy is how we feel the joy, happiness and thrill in another’s success and well-being.Empathic concern is how we feel another’s suffering and consider how we might be able to compassionately help reduce that person’s pain.

(Self-Empathy) Self-Compassion vs Self-esteem – Dr Kristin Neff.

(Self-Empathy) Self-Compassion vs Self-esteem – Dr Kristin Neff. | Brave and Open Hearts | Scoop.it
In contrast to self-esteem, self-compassion is not based on self-evaluations.

People feel compassion for themselves because all human beings deserve compassion and understanding, not because they possess some particular set of traits (pretty, smart, talented, and so on).

This means that with self-compassion, you don’t have to feel better than others to feel good about yourself.

Can you look at someone's face and know what they're feeling? Does everyone experience happiness, sadness and anxiety the same way? What are emotions anyway? For the past 25 years, psychology professor Lisa Feldman Barrett has mapped facial expressions, scanned brains and analyzed hundreds of physiology studies to understand what emotions really are. She shares the results of her exhaustive research -- and explains how we may have more control over our emotions than we think.
