Gut Feeling, The life inside

What is gut feeling? Why is it called that way?


What is the association between the gut and feelings? These might be the questions swimming in your mind when you heard the term gut feeling. This article would explain this phenomenon.

For starters, gut feelings are reflections of your intuition. It happens when the unconscious brain receives subliminal signals in a given situation. In most cases, gut feelings are always right. And this is also why many people follow what their gut is telling them to do.

Now, you might be wondering what the gut has to do with it. As a matter of fact, the gut plays an important role in people's lives. The term gut feeling comes from the fact that the gut or the stomach area is where the second-largest network of interconnected neurons is located. Remember the feeling in your stomach when you're having strong feelings and reactions over something? That is because the gut has its "independent" nervous system. Considered as the second brain, the gut is also full of neurons and microbes that are crucial to one's physical, mental, and emotional health. The gut also has an excellent ability to communicate with the brain. There are studies that found out that changes in gut bacteria can affect a person's mood, behavior, and way of thinking.

Such connection between the gut and the brain gave birth to the term gut feeling. Following your gut is not a bad thing to do even if the obvious circumstance tells you otherwise. In many cases, gut feelings often lead to best decisions.
