“Attract” or “Avoid”: the language of the Emotional (Limbic Brain)

The human brain has been evolving for more than two hundred thousand years. In that time the Limbic System, also coined the “Emotional Brain” has evolved to help protect us from threat to our survival.

It speaks in a well developed code that can be simplified as “Attract” or “Avoid”. Said differently could sound like, “Move towards” or “Move away from”.

This, among other systems of the Brain and body help us distinguish our likes and dislikes. What turns us on and what turns us off.

Sometimes our Emotional Brain can run amuck and create many stress related responses in the mind and body.

Becoming more in tune with your Emotional/Limbic Brain can help you defuse that trouble and get back to having more good days.
