Our Thoughts Do Control Our Emotions and Actions:

It is evident that our thoughts lead us into our state of emotions and then proceeds with the actions that follow based on our positive or negative emotional state.

Depending on your conscious and unconscious emotional state of appearance, this determines your actions therefore, for some can lead into possible anxiety, depression and in some cases suicide.

Lead experts in neuroscience have confirmed that neurotransmitters and axons in our brain do connect with the fear centres in the brain and do create synaptic charges which can release chemical endorphins and have proven evidence on how the charges and connections between the axons and neuron transmitters are effecting the brain when negative thoughts and fears are evident.

The brain doesn’t understand positive thoughts and when unforeseen tragic events occur in our lives, the brain automatically goes into survival mode and protection mode, just like an animal would if they were hunting for food or protecting their babies.

Decisions that we make and actions that we take promptly determine our daily thoughts, feelings emotions and motions.

When we make decisions consciously and you are certain of its outcome then we are confident within ourselves to proceed and act on that decision. However, when we aren’t aware of the outcomes based on our decision we become uncertain of the response therefore, the thought and emotions behind our actions impact us on so many different levels. Further to this, is if we suddenly experience tragedy of some sort and we react with emotions and thoughts that begin to consume us with negativity energies and thoughts, this is where thoughts become confusing and we allow our state of emotions to take over our actions that usually result to mental health risk to some degree.

For some this could lead into anxiety disorders, obsessive compulsive disorders and in some cases suicide.

Some consider these mental state to be people who are attention seekers however, consider if one of these people are a family member, a friend or someone that you may know who displays negativity thoughts, emotions and motions on an ongoing basis. What would you do to help and support this person? What can you do?

Well, there are many things you can do. The first thing is to notice the changes in the behaviours of these people experiencing or displaying such unusual actions and outcomes.

The next step is to notice them enough and to care enough and to reach out and ask them if they are O.K? Even though they may say yes, and you know something is not quite right, then this is also cause for formal action that you would need to follow up.

You can support someone simply by telling someone else in the know. Someone who is qualified and can support them in creating changes and making differences in their lives and aiming to return to some sense of worth for self and for others around them.

Mind Ahead tips;

  • Begin to notice what you wouldn’t normally notice.

  • Create change by supporting someone by simply asking if they are OK.
