Emotions And The Chemistry Behind

Every time you feel something your body initiates a physiological change, a chemical release and a behavioural response. This process involves multiple processes working together, including your major organs, neurotransmitters and the limbic system. Your limbic system is the most primordial part of your brain. It’s filled with ancient neural pathways that activate our emotions in response to stimuli and controls our fight-or-flight response through the autonomic nervous system.

This response evolved from a need to make decisions based on our emotions. The biological sensations in our bodies in response to emotions can feel very similar to one another. Imagine your palms sweating, feeling your cheek warm as they flush red, and your heart pounding jn your chest. You could feel this because you are sitting nervously in the dentist’s waiting room, or you could be excited as you wait to see your loved ones after they return from a holiday- the physiological reaction is the same.

Now that you have understood about the physiological part of it. Let me tell you that your emotions depend upon fluctuations in the neurotransmitters. It further activates the different parts in your brain responsible for different moods.

Adrenaline
Released by the adrenaline glands that sit on the top of the kidney, adrenaline increases the blood flow in muscles, raises heart rate & dilates pupils. It has a crucial role to play in the flight-fight survival response.

Dopamine
This one is an addictive reward chemical in your brain. Gives you the motivation to seek out things that you need for your survival.

Oxytocin
Aka “cuddle hormone” , often released when you are close to another person. Essential in developing social bonds, & a key part in why we want to trust people.

GABA
Regulates muscle tone. Regulates communication between brain cells. Can bring calming effects by slowing down neurons firing.

Glutamate
Most abundant neurotransmitter in the vertebral nervous system. Glutamate is used by nerve cells. But excess of it can cause cognitive impairments.

Serotonin
It is linked to our wellbeing and happiness. Our levels of it is affected by exercise and exposure to sunlight. It helps to regulate our mood balance , sleep cycle and digestion.

Endorphins
Triggered by the sensation of pain. It works on inhibiting the transmission of the pain signals. It is capable of producing euphoria. Some studies suggest that it may be stimulated by laughter.

Now, when you feel a certain way. You will know what inside mechanism working.

The Gestalt Prayer – Fritz Perls

I do my thing
and you do your thing.
I am not in this world
to live up to your expectations
And you are not in this world
to live up to mine.
You are you and I am I.
And if by chance
we find each other,it’s beautiful,
If not, it can’t be helped.I do my thing
and you do your thing.
I am not in this world
to live up to your expectations
And you are not in this world
to live up to mine.
You are you and I am I.
And if by chance
we find each other,it’s beautiful,
If not, it can’t be helped.
Fritz Perls (1893-1970)
Gestalt Therapy pioneer

For The New Decade

I take my learnings from the past,

And pack my bags to move ahead,

I allow myself to discover the new,

And rediscover the old.

I stand.

I breathe.

I move ahead.

This new decade is mine and so is yours.

As I am me and you are you.

I begin at my own pace and you begin at yours.

Let’s believe that under the same sky we can be who we want to be.

Let’s hope that we can fall in love again with different things at a different time.

Let’s not look down upon but appreciate the individual differences.

While I like the stars and you like the moon.

With all the affection, I welcome 2020.
