MBL Minute: Health Insurance And Emotional Endorphins
The work we love doing is not just a job, it is health insurance. As we reconnect with our authentic selves and develop our emotional intelligence a healthy connection the brain’s pleasure neurotransmitters dopamine, serotonin and oxytocin is established. We experience the joy and rewarding effects of living on purpose. Our unconscious need to steal and control the energy of others comes from our unwillingness to do the emotional labor required to live of purpose. The habit of giving away our energy and stealing the energy of others is the root cause that underlies all drama, chaos and conflict.
Whether it is running in a race or performing some other type of physical challenge, our body has developed the ability to produce chemical endorphins that temporarily mask physical pain. This enables us to continue moving forward toward the achievement of our desired results. In a similar way we can develop our emotional endorphins, through the practice of doing emotional labor. This enables us to move through the stress and anxiety change produces toward our desired results. Taking action that regularly moves us out of our comfort zone helps to reduce the drama, chaos and conflict in our lives. It increases our awareness and focuses our attention on the task at hand while generating positive emotions.
