The Stress Response - Good or Bad?
The stress response or fight, flight and freeze - The primitive, automatic response to perceived harm, danger or threat.
When our brain perceives that we in some kind of mortal danger, it triggers a chain of physical changes that will help to save us. Chemicals and hormones flood our system that prepare us to fight or flee.
So, for acute, real danger, the stress response or fight, flight and freeze is great - it is just what we need to get us out of danger but, it is not what we need for chronic or long term, non life threatening situations - or when we are overwhelmed, worried, stressed or anxious.
What we need is something that can switch off the stress response, and return our body to normal, healthy function.
The Relaxation Response .. How can that help us?
The relaxation response is the polar opposite of the stress response - it reverses the physical changes caused by stress and, helps to return the body to a healthy state.
Relaxation is not a luxury ~ Relaxation is an essential tool in strengthening our personal resilience!
