Chapter 7 

The emotions of stress 

Why not? 

This is a statement this can be ominous if you have pessimistically negative thought in your emotions. It can be a question that causes stress and doubt to form in 10 emotions of vocal and body language. The body/brain barrier of psychosocial plasticity that you have built your life on in your decision-making you have taken via the prefrontal cortex. You can find courage and empower your decision-making to achieve new goals in your life. Cognitive reframing and meditative mindfulness can give you a new psychosocial empowerment and motivation. 

Emotional experiences constantly shape our daily lives. Emotions are decision-making body/brain notions that cause us to react in the way we do with your life lessons of plasticity. 

It is not a matter of what happens to us. Rather, it is how we respond to what happens that causes the results that are psychosocially experienced. This is how the biological emotional chemistry is built. The way you respond is a direct influence in how you decide. Psychosocial is that, in which you interpret the circumstances and events of your life story from others. This emotional response building stems from your abilities to manage the effects your emotions have on you. This is in ways that allow the emotions to assist and serve your requirements in obtaining results that should be positive outcomes. 

Before we can reach an explanation to emotions, it is important to gain understanding that emotional responses are signally to your consciousness that something is happening within your biological chemistry and therefore a change might be needed. They can be considered to be an essence of a call to action that directs you to acting specifically to alleviate something, if it causes worry, stress or discomfort. 

All the emotions we will discuss involve getting yourself stuck in a rut. This rut is the patterns of your own plasticity responses to circumstances, events and people. All these have their own physiological state of responses of psychosocial tonal words and phrases. This is an interpretation of psychosocial, where the self remains as a separate identity from others. It is via the prefrontal cortex of decision-making.. 

These emotions are the essence of how we seek to gain comfort mechanisms. These we use when things do not go as the way we planned, or as you expected them to go psychosocially. 

We will now discuss a breakdown of the 10 emotional mindful states that create a negative state of stress, doubt and worrying thoughts. These emotions form from the questioning thought of: 

Why not? 

If you are a pessimist why not? is daunting. If you can get through these emotional negative emotions then optimism will charge you with empowerment, courage and a stress-free life. These emotions drain courage and empowerment taking away your self-motivation. So, ask yourself this: 

Can I do all of this? 

If not, why not?! 

Use mindfulness and optimistic positivism by vocally using these empowering statements. Take charge of your life and empower yourself with cognitive retraining in your prefrontal cortex of decision-making to ask and answer this question and change these 10 emotional mindsets to a new self-motivated you that can achieve new goals in life. 


Fear is often an emotion that debilitates. It leads to the conditions of anxiety, indecision and worry. The reason you suffer fear emotions is because your decision-making prefrontal cortex interprets a situation or circumstance in specific ways. That leads towards feelings or cortisol stressors that trigger the amygdala. The feeling that fear brings quite often is the result from an emotional reaction towards thoughts or actions that lead to a future event. That is if the specific decision-making or specific action is nor resolved. This is a natural response to stressors, but if the emotional thoughts are not based on factual things then further thoughts occur that lead to resolution or worry and fear. Fear and the resultant worry often run side by side, if the facts that have been thought through, are a convex of inaccuracy. That then confuse you into a vicious cycle of worry. 

So, the first thing that must be done to stop stress of notions building from fear is to sort through the imagined to the true real facts. Fear is a very valuable emotion. That is because it protects you from the harm of your fright situations like a large angry dog that has got free from its leash. However, in this day and age fear is actually nothing more than an interference. This is because it stops us from achieving things and inhibits our goals. 

The two methods that need to be put into action over fear are: firstly, clarifying the situation. Secondly, preparing fully with mindful meditative actions that will be needed to achieve a positive outcome. The second has the key action of motivation to physically act, rather than think it through illogically with worry. These vital steps are needed because our fears create worry. That worrying, doubtful fear is based on a lack of knowledge via a lack of preparing for action. If you carry these two steps out, you will have the keys to overcome the worrying, doubtful fear. Worrying is more the modern age interpretation of fear. When fear occurs, it is a worded term used to interpret the biological body/brain response of rats! This fear response is really based on animal experimentation, where worrying and doubt causes the same biological response in a modern-day human. 


This debilitating physiological emotion can cause constant negative thoughts of sadness and stagnation. 

The experience of loneliness is because you have entered a world of thought. That is a lens that separates you from everything and everyone that lies outside of you. It is absolutely no way of living your life if you wish to gain empowerment. Take courage and start to see the opportunities that are out there for you. Get motivated if you suffer loneliness. 

You need to reconnect to others with common goals, reconnect to a new emotional environment of society and career. Perhaps you need to change a new view of your life now and aim for a higher cause that will motivate you to feel more fulfilled, have a passion for people, places and about your life goals. 

Loneliness grows in the heart and can dull senses of wanting to achieve something with your life. When we are lonely, we can tend to forget the things we should feel grateful to have in our lives. If you start to feel gratitude it will help to restore the motivation and balance of the things you should desire and miss. You do not miss and desire them because loneliness has caused you to stagnate. Gratitude will help you to open your heart to others and that will cause you an empowerment with new revitalising courage. 


The uncomfortable emotion of discomfort, often becomes distress, embarrassment or impatience. By interpreting a set of circumstances or a situation via a specific method, this leads you to biological reactions of feeling discomfort. Distress is a prequal to fearful worry. By taking a different approach to something the results might change, alleviating this emotion. If you find you cannot change the situation, then you need to rethink your perspective. In either of these methods you should be able to sort through to find something that will be of help. In this way you will able to get yourself out of the uncomfortable emotion. 


Anger can cause us to become out of control and quite often leads to resentfulness. Anger is a condition directed at ourselves because of irrational fear of doubt and worry. That causes the thought process to become resentful of ourselves. 

Before you embrace the notions of anger, it is vital that you understand, anger quite often arises in you because one or more of our beliefs have been broken. And because of this we develop the anger emotion because we have no logical reasons that make us feel in control of the argument or discussion, situation or circumstance. In some instances, we can be rid of the feeling quite quickly, by re-evaluating our sets of self-belief. This anger is a 'rest and digest'' response. It should in fact be the response opposition of this parasympathetic nervous systems of 'ignorance'. This is where the brain shuts off from notions of discussion on the subject. This is achieved by blinking in a fast method. Also, being self-aware and mindful that the thumbs are pointing down to signify body language of incorrect. The body is significant in allowing the thoughts not to react to the situation as 'fight or flight' in thoughtfulness. 

An alternative that causes anger to come is because you have interpreted something wrongly. Interpretation about circumstances and a person's intentions.  In this example you need to question whether you may have misinterpreted the situation with high emotional reactions. You might also have misinterpreted the other's intentions. If this is the case you need to form self-awareness of compassion and fascinated wander and look for self-interpreted alternatives. By being open and flexible you will provide yourself with the appropriate answer that you are after. 


Hurt is an emotion that can leave us powerless. It often leads to senses of jealousy and a sense of loss. When the feeling of hurt is felt it could be resulting from not having communicated your requirements effectively towards others. As such, what you need to do, is begin immediately by using communication of what is needed from the relationship in a clear and not in a threatening way. 

If you discuss your needs with the other and it does not work, then take your own considerations of your expectations. Your expectation may not actually be reasonable, maybe your expectation needs reviewing, maybe they have changed over the course of time, or that they no longer apply to the relationship. Therefore, re-evaluate the situation. 

Hurt can sometimes be feelings that are resultant from lacking an understanding about a relationship or about circumstances. In this instance, it can help immensely by replacing the hurt with expressions, words and thoughts that are showing curiosity and fascination.  

If you show emotions of curiosity, you will start be beginning with better questions. This will expand the way you are thinking. It leads to possibilities and answers that may never have been considered by you before. Fascination opens you up to the emotion of happy interest. 


Guilt is an emotion that can leave us feeling deflated and can quite often lead to emotional feelings of regret. You are feeling guilt, it might be because of interpretation of circumstances or situations of a specific way of thinking that leads you to feel body notions of guilt. The longer you hold onto guilty emotions and feelings the worse it will get as it grows and festers inside your body brain barrier.  

When you experience guilty notions what to remember is that the experience of guilt is in the way you interpret what you did or even failed to do. This reflects in your thoughts as stressors of the psychosocial impact it has on you and others. By seeing moments of the circumstances or events in a unique or different way, in that moment guilty notions take a sudden change of aspect. It turns to empower and motivate you into taking positive actions. 

Realising the impact that your actions may not be as they seem. In these instances, it is necessary to review your beliefs about why you feel guilty. You may find you need to re-evaluate your beliefs.  

Guilty notions are quite often resolved if you are able to make up with yourself. In this way, you can make yourself and with any people involved gain peace. This emotion can lead to feeling of hurt and depression. Even worry if you feel you have hurt someone. 


This is one of those emotions that cause a love/hate relationship. This is because the feelings it gives is that you feel as though you are so close, yet so far from achieving your goals. Within us is the feelings and where the answer lies in become mindful. Self-awareness is catching your breath shuddering in a worried stressor of body language of not achieving that goal. You have maybe become frustrated because of the interpretation notions that you do not seem to be getting anywhere, or the results you desire. It is like something is holding you back. Much like a thought that is on the tip of your tongue, but will not emerge. 

You must instead try to control the situation. This key is by beginning to think outside the box. Think in terms of ideas and possible solutions and new possibilities. This might help you very well by solving the frustration you are feeling. Sometimes by looking at new information is all that is required of you. This could cause you to become insightful, but also give you a more optimistic attitude, where failure is just a matter of: try, try again, but something new. In these circumstances all it takes is trying some that have not considered before, even something new. If you remember the optimist losing their job, their positive thoughts revolved around this. Determination, curiosity and having a flexible approach is the key factor that you need to be looking for. This viewpoint builds plasticity to a new you via cognitive reframing away from negative thinking that frustration causes. 


This hormonal emotion can leave you with feelings in your decision-making of feeling unworthy and make you display psychosocially behaviour that is miserable looking and moody. Much like the pessimist losing their job negative thoughts like inadequacy will leave feelings like you have hit rock bottom with no way out. It can be a very debilitating feeling and is in part a frustration at circumstances. 

If you had high expectations of something, not having the experience, skills or knowledge can be overcome. This is where positivism is needed of the frustration that will creep in with inadequate negativity stressors. 

By beating the frustration of inadequacy, you do this by reasserting your expectation about yourself and your abilities to gain what is necessary for a positive outcome. 

Within inadequacy you might be experiencing you might simply be undermining your own strengths with pessimistic negative thoughts about your abilities. If this is the case try to get a second opinion by discussion. Get yourself out there by getting some feedback from a work colleague, family member or friend.  Start by asking for an honest opinion from them, it will only ease the frustration and by talking you will not dwell inside with feeling of inadequate negative thoughts. They might even give you a new perspective or surprising insights that brighten you from inadequacy. By talking to someone you are relieving yourself as well. This is by showing yourself that you are not inadequate, but doing something positive about the emotional feelings. 

A lack of confidence can often stem from inadequacy. By doing what I said in the previous paragraph you are only causing yourself to renegotiate your plasticity of hormones. This into a more confident, positive person. An optimist that is not afraid to get out there and achieve your goals, even if they do not work out at first. So, take your time to actually build confidence that will show through as a new psychosocial positive you. You will find that through cognitive reframing, you gain more self-belief, so making you feel better about yourself and consider new prospects as a positive thinker. This will all also alleviate negative impact body language, where you will start to left your head in front of the hierarchy. You may even find the boss saying good morning to you and smiling as well. That is how cognitive reframing builds a new psychosocial you as plasticity. 


The motional feeling of disappointment of not achieving or getting what you want stems from the sense of being defeated by worrying thoughtfulness. Instead looking for ways to answers and solutions your thoughts are a pit full of unfulfilled objectives, goals and dreams that leave you feeling negative about your reality.  

When you feel disappointed with your lifestyle, you will be thinking that things could have been different. No matter what you think and how you try getting around it, negative thoughts revolve in the past disappointments. This is plasticity at work, but we can change the past in a positive way. 

If you wallow in disappointment, you need to choose to learn instead from the disappointing experiences, so as you can better yourself for the future. Thoughts of the future that are inadequate are a negative pessimistic explanatory type of thought. Instead of using pessimism it is worthwhile to start looking for opportunities that might become available. These opportunities are available by learning from experience and staying optimistic. 

Disappointment may be the result of your expectations being set to high. They may be set and stuck in an unrealistic thought zone of exotic holidays, being rich from winning the lottery. These can almost never be realised. If this is the case you will need to lower your expectations to a level where disappointment does not develop into a negativity of sadness and depression. By lowering your expectations, you will dig yourself out of this pit of thoughtful negative despair. 

Disappointment can be regret that a certain goal in your life was never achieved. Perhaps you have a desire to do something. Nothing is unachievable if you want to do something within your power to do so. Do not give in to disappointment, but also do not set your thoughts to something that is unrealistic. 


To be overwhelmed with negative emotion can creep over you over time. Before you realise feelings suddenly overwhelm to the debilitating negative emotions of depression and grief. 

If you are overwhelmed it could be because you have taken on too much that is making you feel stressed and worried, or you simply find that you are unable to take control of some aspects in your life. In these circumstances your negative thoughts may cause them to become out of control and what you say and do with others is negative. That causes looks of worry and stress to form in your body language that psychosocial people will notice. 

The solution to being overwhelmed is to slowly take control of your life to change your decision-making in the prefrontal cortex. Changing one piece or aspect at a time via, gaining a focus of your negativity.  This means to take parts of your thoughts that can easily to changed first, so as you can successfully build towards a positive attitude for the larger objectives. It will also require letting go of unnecessary commitment and obligation that weighs of your thinking. Either that or reschedule your commitments to meditative relaxing by not committing so much time in this negative attitude. Some overcoming the thought that overwhelm you is a lesson in productivity. 

Transforming your emotions. 

Understanding what emotions really mean is good for finding positivism, but when we get caught in a moment the first response is quite often vital. The first emotional response has the tendency to react against yourself, rather than it working for us, if you have negative tendencies. In these circumstances you need to be aware of the transformation process of the emotional state.  

When you first try achieving this move consciously through each of these following steps. In this way it will become a natural part of your bodily mindful reactions. You will find that you no longer need to have to think through each step and will find that you are able to respond to each emotional reaction out of habit. In a way that requires you no thought and conscious effort when you are in discussion with others. 

Here is the step-by-step process for you to firstly think about, before you can move to a natural processing of this emotional state transformation process. 

Identifying to your emotions. 

Firstly, you need to understand and identify your emotions you are experiencing. It is an important step to recognise what your body and facial expression is displaying when you negatively think or communicate. If you cannot find the kind of emotion you have when in discussion or thought, then you will always struggle to respond to others or your self-expression with a new positive attitude. 

To get yourself used to exploring your first emotional response, ask yourself these two questions when in a mindfulness state of meditation. 

What do I feel in my body and facial expressions right now? 

Do I really feel like this, or was, or is there something more? Something I missed? 

The more clarity you have to an emotional state before and after these questions, the more you will have to work on as you go through this process. 

Find appreciation in your emotions. 

It is vital in this early stage that whatever type of emotions you display, that you do not resit them. If they are disbelief or confounding, give yourself a surprised knowing smile. 

Resisting your emotion of the initial reaction will only cause uncertainty. Thus, preventing you from making the desired changes in your initial emotion. If necessary open your eyes to bring yourself out of the meditative state and retry. This time work with what you discovered as you move forward again. 

It is of importance that you openly acknowledge to yourself, the initial emotion you experienced. Especially if it was negative worry, sorrow, doubt or disbelief, dismay or scepticism. You need to search and experience it for personal significance and meanings in the situation that you discover within yourself. 

For instance, as you progress through your thoughts from the initial questions you might suddenly find fear in your expression. You may even find that your body has become tense. Instead of resisting and fighting yourself, you need to acknowledge the feeling to yourself that you are feeling fearful or tense. Then you can explore further why you had these feelings. 

Only if you acknowledge and explore your feelings of emotion, can you find yourself moving towards a lesser of negative emotions. Acceptance is a key where forgiveness and forgetting can be experienced. Once you have opened up to the emotion you can then start to move forward, to analysing further in your newly positive forming path. 

Analysing emotions. 

By creating curiosity as an expression of pursing the lips smiling and lifting the eyelids will be a stage where you naturally analyse your thoughts and emotions. Curiosity can open the door to new opportunity and perspective. This can help you to gain insightfulness into your emotions, when you are naturally conversing with someone, or thinking about something. 

This set of questions that follow will help you to become more curious about emotions that you display: 

What is this emotional state offering me? 

What is it that I feel? And what desires can I fulfil from these feelings? 

How do I learn from this? Learning that will cause me to do better in future in my emotional expression, so why not learn? 

What do I do to make things better? 

In what way does this emotional display serve me? 

What do I have to do to get the outcome that I want? 

What is the true value of my emotion I feel with this question? 

What you need to remember is that the emotions you express are there to serve you in some way. They are there to teach you about yourself. They are valuable lessons in what you are. If they are negative emotions that you have when you are conversing, then think through those conversations and try to imagine and feel your way through the emotional expressions as you are bodily mindful. 

Be open with yourself to find the necessary emotional answers that you need to gain for a positive attitude. You will gain the insights required to overcome the emotions that roadblock you when you are communicating and thinking negatively. 

Become more confident that you can find positive emotions through reshaping your expressions. 

Go through the 10 emotional states in the earlier part and find questions within yourself should you feel any of these negative emotions. Determine the steps that you will be taking to help you to take charge of your emotional feeling and expressions. 

It is a time where you can gain certainty of these negative emotions. You need to choose consciously by exploring the expressions you want to really experience to move forward. By thinking through conversations, you have had and expressing yourself with a mode of certainty will reframe you. 

To help with this process, it can be worth your while to recall from your past times where you handled situations of emotion with success and turned it towards an advantage. Memories like this can be a foundation where you honestly look at the emotional responses you express. Responses that will help pave your way towards a future you deserve. A future where you are no longer overpowered by negative emotions and thoughts when conversing. And rather, consciously respond to others with positivism and communication that they will find proactive and helpful. 

Taking action. 

You now have all the information and knowledge that you require for responses and gaining them. You will find as you think your past and present conversations and thoughts that you can find a better, healthier and more constructive manner of positive emotional expressions. It is time for you to take a set of proactive actions that cause a transformation process in your emotional state. A state of positivism is within you and finding it is for the better.
