What are emotions and feelings?
It may sound confusing so let’s understand a bit better the difference between these 2!
I found a great article on the website of Wake Forest University called The Difference Between Feelings and Emotions.
It makes the distinction like this:
Feelings. Both emotional experiences and physical sensations — such as hunger or pain — bring about feelings, according to Psychology Today. Feelings are a conscious experience.
Emotions. According to Psychology Today, an emotion “can only ever be felt…through the emotional experiences it gives rise to, even though it might be discovered through its associated thoughts, beliefs, desires, and actions.” Emotions are not conscious but instead manifest in the unconscious mind. These emotions can be brought to the surface of the conscious state.
So, we can see that feelings are more happening in the conscious mind and emotions are rising from the unconscious mind.
What a fascinating topic, right? 🙂
Also, there are 6 “main” emotions that are recognized by scientists, and that are:
They are the 6 “main” emotions because scientists discovered that these 6 facial expressions were identified as universal in all people in all cultures.
Amazing, right? 🙂
For today, let’s focus on the emotions list PDF so you can understand what you’re feeling a bit better! 🙂
This part was more about feelings vs emotions.
Why emotions and feelings are important?
Just as I described it in my post & podcast episode 6 Steps To Mastering Your Emotions [Infographic], emotions and feelings are the real goal of any action we are taking.
No matter what we are doing, no matter the hour, the day, we are doing it because it will make us feel a certain way.
And if we are not doing something, it’s because we don’t want to feel a certain way.
Think about anything that you want to do, a result that you want to get, for example, eating healthier.
Why do you want to eat healthier? So you can FEEL better.
The opposite is true too! Why don’t you want to start that conversation with this stranger, it’s because you’re maybe afraid of feeling rejected or ignored.
No matter what we are doing, it’s because we think that it will make us feel a certain way (or avoid to feel a certain way).
Basically, we have to learn what emotions exist, which ones we feel on a daily basis, and if they are really helping us in getting results that we want or not.
Believe it or not, WE and only WE have control over the way we feel! 🙂
This is actually amazing news! 🙂

Why a list of emotions and feelings?
So, I really think that if I’m asking you how do you usually feel on a daily basis, you’ll come up with a few emotions if you’re inspired enough.
I think that it’s very sad that we are using a few emotions only to describe the amazing and fascinating world of the way we FEEL in our life!
Down the line, this is THE REAL LIFE! What we are feeling and how we want to feel! All the feelings!
This is why I came up with this list, to make sure that you improve your emotional vocabulary, so you can get to know yourself better and know what emotions you actually DO want to feel every day of your life.
Also and keep in mind this point: When you know exactly what emotion you’re experiencing, you’re going to be more comfortable with what you’re feeling. You’re going to feel more in control!
Let’s have a look at this feeling words list.

There is the first part, the ones we called “positive emotions” and that are the ones that we feel when our needs are being met.
They are also called sometimes happy emotions or also types of feelings.
The second list is the emotions that we feel when our needs aren’t being met…
So many different emotions! They are also sometimes called sad emotions.
Now, you understand that there are a few more words to really describe the way you’re feeling, right? 🙂
You can express anything you want from this moods list. They are all amazing words to describe feelings.
What are some examples of feelings?
As I said before, examples of feelings or examples of emotions can be the same.
Emotions are more experienced in the unconscious mind when feelings are more happening in the conscious mind.
So, have a look at the list above, it can already help you a lot! 🙂
The most important here is to understand that no matter the emotion or the feeling, you HAVE CONTROL OVER IT.
You can choose how to feel! 🙂
How to do this? By paying attention to the way YOU THINK.
Remember: Your thoughts create your feelings.
Be comfortable with ANY kind of emotions!
With the infographic that I shared in the post 6 Steps To Mastering Your Emotions [Infographic], you can really learn how to feel any kind of emotions that come your way.
What is amazing is that you won’t be afraid to do anything anymore, because you know that you will be okay no matter what!
You know that you absolutely CAN deal with any emotion.
You can do this by playing with an emotion!
What do I mean by that?
For example, I used to hate having the emotion of feeling overwhelmed
When you know that you have tons of things to do and you’re not sure where to start, what’s important or not!
And actually, I started by feeling this emotion on purpose. How did I do that?
By having thoughts that make me feel overwhelmed such as:
- What is my next task?
- What will I do with that project?
- Is there anything more urgent that I need to do?
First, I’m feeling this feeling with the 6 steps previously mentioned:
And then, I’m focusing on the solutions instead.
I accepted the emotion of overwhelming.
Now, what do I want to feel instead? Maybe I want to feel committed, determined, and persistent!
What do I need to think to make me feel this way?
- I can do this even if it’s hard!
- One day at a time…
- It’s the small steps and habits that bring the biggest results.
- Others managed to do it, I can too!
These examples of empowering thoughts are really helping me in changing my thoughts and then, the way that I’m feeling.
Fun & empowering game for you: practice your feelings!
You do something because of the way it will make you feel!
As I always say, emotions are the reasons why we do everything we do and why we DO NOT do something!
No matter what we are doing, it’s because we think that we’re going to feel a certain way!
And the funny thing is that we want to feel positive emotions all the time, but we are not actually really willing to feel negative emotions.
The thing is, living in a human body means that we will feel 50% of the time negative emotions and 50% of the time positive ones. And that’s fine!
When something is outrageous or annoying us, you will want to feel sad or annoyed!
It’s the whole point of being a human being: Feeling emotions, positive and negative ones!
Also, we need to be more willing to feel our emotions, positive or negative ones! 🙂
How to do that?
Try this super easy and simple trick:
1. Think of a moment recently in your life that you liked.
It can be as simple as reading a book, going for a walk, hanging out with someone else (or with yourself actually!).
Picture yourself there, completely.
Close your eyes and think about that moment.
How do you feel? What’s the emotion? Name the emotion and describe it: Where it is, what color it is, what’s the size of it and how does it feel in your body.
Take your time to really feel that moment and that emotion in your body.
Open your eyes.
2. Now think of something that is annoying you!
A problem that you have to solve, something that’s been on your mind recently.
And here it’s not going to be that easy so stay with me! 🙂
Simply close your eyes and think about that issue.
Then, switch and imagine that you are out of your head into your body.
Look at what you’re thinking as the observer/the watcher!
From that point of view, describe the emotions that you’re feeling.
Name it, is it anxiety? Frustration? Worryness?
Define where it is in your body.
Where it is, what color it is, what’s the size of it and how does it feel in your body?
Then open your eyes.
This is how you truly feel an emotion! 🙂
Positive or negative feelings are there to be felt!
All emotions are completely valid!
And you can allow any emotions that you may be feeling: positive and negative ones.
You can develop that gentle awareness to experience negative emotions.
If you are willing to allow any kind of emotions, nothing can stop you!
Because remind yourself: the only reason why we don’t take action is that we are afraid of feeling a negative emotion!
But emotions cannot hurt us.
The worst thing that can happen is a negative emotion.
You can tell yourself this:
“This is “name of the emotion” emotion and it’s ok to feel it.”
Nothing has gone wrong, this is part of the human being’s experience! 🙂
Dealing with emotions = building your self-confidence!
When you learn how to deal with any kind of emotions, you are more comfortable with yourself.
Because you know that you have control over your life!
You know that you have your own back and you’re not afraid of any emotion that may come your way.
You’re not afraid of taking actions or of trying something new, because you know that you’ll be okay no matter what, since you know how to deal with any kind of emotions! 🙂

- I can do hard things!
- I succeeded in a lot of things, I can do that too!

It was fascinating!
