#5 What Are Emotions & Feelings?

In this Episode, Clare discusses her personal experience with skin cancer surgery and the emotional challenges that she faced. We highlight the importance of acknowledging and working through emotions and critically how to do that. We explore the intricate relationship between emotions and thinking, emphasising the need to recognise and interpret emotions to avoid negative ‘mind-loops’ that can have a destructive impact on behaviour, outcomes, relationships, health challenges, and overall sense of reality. We discuss the societal pressure on men to suppress emotions, leading to negative consequences including mental health issues. Finally, we offer practical advice on how to handle conflicts and emotional feelings in a constructive manner.
