The body's response to fear: What is the flight or fight response?

Updated: Oct 11, 2019

Perceived fear can trigger our sympathetic nervous system at any time.

Taming our sympathetic nervous system (SNS) and keeping it at bay results in a better ability to act with #cognitive #rationalism. When we are fearful our SNS system forces us to act selfishly and with poor #insight aimed at keeping the perceived physical threat at bay - imagined or real. In turn we become isolated and cut-off and unable to affectively utilise our resources or connect with each other. In this article Timothy B Stokes explores our personal rogues, or what he likes to call our #Amygdala scripts - the source of what triggers us.
