In this video you will learn about how emotions work, the two-dimensional model of emotional experience, how anger, happiness, and depression affect health, and about the connection of stress, the nervous system, and chronic stress.
Stress can be defined as the process by which you perceive and respond to certain events, or stressors, that you view as challenging or threatening. Stress isn’t technically an emotion, but it is more a reaction to difficult emotions like fear or anger.
Emotions and stress aren’t just psychological, they also affect our body and health, both in positive and negative ways. Understanding the connection between your emotions, stress, and physical health can help you to appreciate your emotions instead of letting them run your life.
