These evolving theories are not unexpected because the field is continuously learning how feelings affect perception, reasoning, problem solving abilities and the ways in which people adapt to life events. The current research offers the biological explanations for the health psychology position; these human emotions are biological, psychological and sociological in nature.

An old tale slightly revised

The young businessman was attempting to relax using his favorite meditation method and laying on his couch becoming more and more relaxed.

All of a sudden he noticed a fly landing on his nose and picked up the book lying next to him and swatted it. He resumed his exercises until he noticed that there were two flies on his face, swatting again, resuming his meditation. He almost immediately noticed 4 flies on his face, then 8, then 16, then 32 frantically swatting again and again.

Pretty soon the whole room was infested with thousands of flies & the poor guy suddenly had a new idea and just laid back once again to just focus on his original task "to become relaxed" .

He ignored all the flies buzzing around the room & within minutes they all disappeared.

Have a good week-end! (I don't remember where the budda story originated ....feel free to give credit in the comment section)

☯ Gaslighting is when a person, entity or company (in order to gain more power), makes a victim question their reality.

1. They tell blatant lies.
2. They deny they ever said something, even though you have proof.
3. They use what is near and dear to you as ammunition.
4. They wear you down over time.
5. Their actions do not match their words.
6. They throw in positive reinforcement to confuse you.
7. They know confusion weakens people.
8. They project.
9. They try to align people against you.
10. They tell you or others that you are crazy.
11. They tell you everyone else is a liar.

A good article and will write about it "someday". However, we are just too busy working on other projects right now....and am just beginning to learn "pop sci" terms.
