Thoughts and Emotions according to Marian Rojas Etapé
Thoughts and Emotions, how the brain works
We live in the information age, but curiously, we still do not understand one of the most crucial aspects of our existence: the interaction between our thoughts and emotions. In her recent conference, the renowned Doctor and Psychiatrist Marian Rojas Estapé offers us a deep introspection on the inner workings of our brain.
The Link between Thoughts and Emotions
It all starts with a simple thought. These thoughts, when held in our mind, trigger emotions. These emotions, in turn, dictate our moods and ultimately guide our actions. This chain of events is fundamental in cognitive behavioral psychology, also known as the psychology of thought. Although this relationship may seem basic at first glance, its understanding and application can be extremely complex.
Lack of Emotional Education
Despite advances in education and technology, one crucial aspect has been overlooked in most contemporary societies: emotional education. We are not taught how to manage our emotions or how to discern and direct our thoughts. This lack of self-knowledge and self-management is reflected in a society plagued by ailments, both physical and mental, caused by poor emotional management.
Estapé highlights an alarming problem: the constant state of stress that many experience due to worries about future events that, in many cases, will never happen. Such behavior results in the continuous production of cortisol in our brain, a response to unfounded fears and erroneous beliefs. This persistent release of cortisol due to negative emotions has significant repercussions on our physical and mental well-being.
The Awakening of Self-Knowledge
“Know thyself” is not just an old adage, but a contemporary solution to many of our current problems. Knowing our mind, understanding how we process thoughts and emotions, is essential to leading a conscious, healthy and ultimately more fulfilling life.
Dr. Rojas Estapé invites us to take control, to observe ourselves, to understand and manage our emotions and thoughts. Only through this journey of self-knowledge and self-reflection can we hope to change our trajectory, reduce unnecessary stress and embrace a life of true wellness and fulfillment.
Conclusion: The relationship between thoughts and emotions not only defines our actions, but also plays a crucial role in our overall health and well-being. Taking the time to understand, educate oneself and manage this relationship is essential for a balanced and fulfilling life.
