    Review by Shaun @ Newtown, Sydney
    So it boils down to this. There is a part of your brain called the limbic system (lets call it the feeling brain) that generates the feelings and mood you experience. What the feeling brain decides your mood or feeling will be is based on the information provided to it by other parts of the body such as the 5 senses, the thinking part of your brain, the food you eat, the environment you spend your
    time in in and the life you decide to live. This isn’t a magic bullet to fix all your problems but more like a set of tools you can use to steer or gently influence your mood. Think of it like incentivising and tricking your pet dog into playing nicely instead of being a terror that chews and destroys everything in it’s path. You don’t have total control but if your clever you can get along and have an meaningful relationship with it. Finally this is just 1 of multiple tools that work on the brain there are other ways that do different
    things and should all be combined into an arsenal of knowledge you will use to get thru life. The part of our brain that generates moods and feelings.
    The basic idea
    The limbic system controls your moods and feelings. Consequently it ‘can’ affect your motivation, your interactions and actions and consequently again the consequences of those interactions and actions.
    ● There is evidence to suggest mood and well being can have a bigger impact on length of life than diet and smoking
    ● A good mood helps you be more effective in working towards your goals (good does not mean happy)
    ● Mood affects what you remember and forget (remember a girl you likes name but not someone who’s no use to you, or the time you were robbed on the street)
    ● Actions are tools to generate feelings hence it affects motivation
    ● And all sorts of internal body functions like digestive and immune system functioning
