Inner thoughts can be defined as the conscious experience of an individual regarded as flowing and an on-going series of ideas and images running through the mind. Feelings can be described as the sensation or experience through touch; or an affective state of consciousness resulting from desires, sentiments, or emotions. Motivations are defined as the reason or reasons one acts or behaves in a particular way. Motivations are a willingness or general desire of someone to do something. Emotions are a natural instinctive state of mind that emanate from a person’s relationships with others, their mood, or current or past circumstances. Emotions are feelings that generally have both cognitive (mind) and physiological (body) elements and can be highly influential as it relates to behavior. Emotions can spontaneously arise within a person’s cognitive state, rather than through conscious effort, and is often accompanied by physical manifestations of the emotion that is expressed. Emotions can be very strong feelings that compel a person to act in unexpected ways, or emotions can be subtle and cause no outward physiological action. Emotions run the gamut and it’s important to understand when our emotions are the root cause of behavior; particularly when the behavior is counterproductive. When a person’s emotions are negative, the immediate reaction by most is to dismiss them. However, the cognitive dismissal of negative emotions does not necessarily cause the body to dismiss the negative feelings. Negative emotions can cause an increase in heart rate, blood pressure, and cause headaches for some. When positive emotions are felt, the body reacts in a more favorable way; for example, heart rates decrease, and breathing becomes more relaxed.
