Why do we have emotions and why are they necessary for our survival? In this brand new series well-known Swedish TV host Eva Funck explains emotions like anxiety, anger, joy and shame, and how we as humans can handle them better.
- I believe we don´t talk enough about emotions. The idea of this series is to help children finding tools and giving them practical tips on how to deal with emotions. And I’m sure that adults can learn a lot from this series too, says Eva Funck.
In the series we get to know how our emotions and feelings work, and why we experience them. What happens in brain parts like the amygdala, hippocampus and cortex when we feel something? How does it affect our body? How is it that emotions can be helpful but also create problems? And how do we deal with them in our everyday lives?
- Our emotions are necessary tools for survival, since they serve as both alarm bells and airbags, as well as giving guidance. For instance, without fear we would have been eaten long ago and without shame we couldn’t function in groups, which is necessary for survival, explains Eva Funck.
Emotions with Eva is aimed at children 6-12 years old and their parents.
