Emotions are not just in your head

This is brilliant.

Finally some news about the relationship between the mind and body in regards to emotions.

You find references for this relationship all throughout Eastern healing, self-help, psychiatry, and even motivation.

I believe even William James wrote about this back in the late 1800′s. (I’m working from memory, though.)

 

The fascinating finding here is the similarity across cultures. Which is ironic, given that we sometimes go out of our way to distinguish ourselves from others.

 

Maybe we’re more alike than we think. Or, more accurately, maybe we’re more alike BECAUSE we FEEL.
