fight-or-flight adjective ˈfīt-ər-ˈflīt
: relating to, being, or causing physiological changes in the body (such as an increase in heart rate or dilation of bronchi) in response to stress
Back in the cave days, fight-or-flight was a survival response to physical threats in the wild. It has evolved into an overactive reaction to perceived threats. Think cognitive stress, not physical danger. The body goes into overdrive to escape or fight our daily stressors.
This response is only helpful when the process ends with the body at rest, aka we survived! Unfortunately, chronic stress prevents that from happening - not being at ease. Fight-or-flight causes anxiety, panic attacks, tunnel vision, fatigue, headaches, & increased heart rate.
