Reactions / Responses.


“When we get hurt, our bodies immediately start trying to heal that hurt. This works for emotions as well.”

Vironika Tugaleva

Your brains networks is always primed ready to react to any threats to your survival. And respond by selecting the appropriate weapon to eliminate or minimise the threat.

1️⃣ Reaction

If one of your five senses detects a threat, your brain reacts by releasing whatever stress chemicals are necessary to deal with the danger to you.

Your survival depends on your brain being able to react to a threat as quickly as possible. So although you may think your reaction to danger is conscious. This is not always the case.

It is your instinctive reaction to ’fake’ threats that can cause your reaction ‘on-off button’ to wear and become stuck in the ‘on’ position. Where ‘on’ is always associated with danger.
