Emotion is a brief conscious experience characterized by intense mental activity and a high degree of pleasure or displeasure. A Feeling that results in physical and psychological changes that influence our behavior and our adaptation.
Emotions build our reality by showing us the significance of the events around us for us. It is a body reaction to the changes around us. Emotions can also be caused by thoughts. No matter what has caused the emotions they affect our reality as they affect our response to the external environment. In this way, they affect the quality of our lives
