The Brain’s Response to Negative Emotions: A Biological Symphony
In the face of negative emotional states, our brain enters a state of high alert. It readies our body for a ‚fight-or-flight‘ response, a primal reaction honed through our evolution. During this state, adrenaline surges, muscles tense, and various physiological parameters, including blood pressure, heart rate, and blood sugar levels, all spike. This biological symphony equips us with the energy to confront challenges head-on.
However, the human experience has evolved, and today, many of our ‚fight-or-flight‘ responses are internally triggered. These internal battles stem from negative memories, emotions, or conditioned learning, often rooted in our formative years. When these responses persist, they can lead to an array of physical and emotional ailments, revealing the intricate connection between our mental and physical well-being.
