- Can you think of a time when your body went into flight-or-flight mode?
- How did your body react? Did your response have a positive or a negative outcome?
- How do you want to respond in the similar situation in the future?
Each time you sense danger, your body automatically tries to protect you by releasing into your bloodstream adrenaline, a chemical that gives you a quick rush of energy. Your pupils dilate, your heart rate accelerates, your blood pressure rises, and your breathing speeds up. You become alert and highly sensitive to your environment. In this “fight or flight” state you are ready to either fight the source of threat or run away from it. When you you’re your body going into this mode you can react positively or negatively. And how you react to this response can either improve the situation or make it worse.
