"Yo voy a sentir bien" está mal expresado, la oración escrita correctamente es "Voy a sentirme bien" o "Me voy a sentir bien". En definición es lo mismo pero debes conjugar el verbo [sentir] para que sea correcto: Sentirse: tercera persona Sentirme: primera persona *Sentir: sin conjugar. Quita el pronombre "yo" y conjuga "sentir" a pretérito imperfecto- [Voy a sentirme bien] traducción: "i am going to feel good"

Yo voy a sentir bien = I am going to feel good (you are talking about some other object that you will feel, not yourself, Spanish speakers will wonder what you are going to feel)

Me voy a sentir bien = I am going to feel good (myself)

Sentir can be used as a reflexive verb, when it is, 'me' has to be used with it in order to convey that the action of the verb is carried out to myself in this use.
'ir a + infinitive' in this case - voy a sentir, is a simple future tense: I am going to feel
Put it together: Me voy a sentir bien - I am going to feel well (or good.) The other one - 'Yo voy a sentir bien' is not being used as a reflexive verb, while it has the same meaning, there is a subtle difference in use.

But what is that subtle difference? This is a good question! I hope someone can explain the answer.

Hmmm so is if i say "yo voy a sentir bien" how does that sound and what does it mean to a native speaker as opposed to "me voy a sentir bien"?. Is "me voy" how i feel inside? And is "yo voy a sentir" literally feeling with my hands for example?

How you feel 'is' reflexive (sentirSE) What you feel is not. (sentir)
