Your walking through the forest, and all of the sudden...
You stop not knowing what's going to happen .
A bear stops in your path and stands up.
You turn around and bolt, but why?
This is the Fight-or-Flight response
“...Up until the recent severe social and political instability we are now experiencing, there was really no danger (or excuse) for the explosion of stress-related diseases in modern history...our stress responses into thinking that there is danger, when in fact there is not.”
”The fight or flight response is part of a comprehensive set of mechanisms that allow us to adapt to whatever demands the environment throws at us,” described by Mary Wingo, Ph. D.
A very modern example of a dangerous case of the acute stress response is PTSD. People with PTSD are always in a state of the fight-or-flight response. Living in a constant state of fear, stress, and anxiety.
