The phrase “gut-feeling” became popular in the 1970’s, but its heritage is quite ancient. The way we now refer to the “heart” as the place where emotions reside, was originally believed (by the Greeks and many others) to have existed in the human gut, and really, that makes more sense.
We hear “follow your gut”, “gut-reaction” and “gut-feeling” because our gut is actually our second brain. Typically, it is telling us how we are feeling before the thought has even formulated in our minds. It’s the place where emotions manifest physically AND where your diet is digested for nutrients and distributed to the body. If you think about it, your gut is quite busy and important; so you better learn how to take care of it.
