The Fight-or-Flight Response

By December 31, 2012

Follow me on:

The fight-or-flight response, or stress reaction, can play an important role in panic disorder and agoraphobia. Although thought to have been helpful for our ancestors, the fight-or-flight response is not as necessary for modern day life. This reaction can lead to frequent feelings of stress, chronic anxiety, and intense panic attacks. However, there are ways to help tame the fight-or-flight response and start feeling more relaxed.
