Increase your self-esteem by understanding the 3 inner systems of feelings (1 minute read)
This post “Increase your self-esteem by understanding the 3 inner systems of feelings” continues with how you can increase your self-esteem by paying attention to your feelings.
Increase your self-esteem by understanding the 3 inner systems of feelings:
Feelings correspond to behavioural and motivational impulses that are important for our survival and for signaling our human needs to us.
Panksepp has based on research identified three types of major emotional systems with different functions:
1 The dominating ‘threat and self-protection’-system to ensure survival by detecting and responding to threats, both physical and mental
2 The incentive and resource-seeking, ‘drive-excitement’-system which stimulates positive feelings that encourage us to explore our world and enrich our lives
3 The soothing, ‘contentment and safeness’-system to recover, experience harmony and get peace of mind
I suggest that you during the holidays observe yourself to see in which system you spend time during the days and what makes you shift among the systems.
