TAGP 165: The Fight, Flight Or Freeze Response To Anxiety And Panic

December 24, 2018

“When The Fight, Flight or Freeze Response Hits, You Know Something Threatening Has Been Detected By Your Subconscious.”

There is a massive imbalance in the majority of people walking on this planet today. Their internal alarm systems, meaning their involuntary fight, flight or freeze response is excessively active. This constant activation is rarely truly justified in our modern lives and it can pull us from experiencing the wholeness in anything going on around us.

As the fight, flight or freeze response hits, all the other internal workings of a human stop functioning properly. The attention is moved to survival mode in that moment, and many bodily sensations begin appearing. These sensations can many times become misinterpreted as a serious physical ailment, causing a cycle of health anxiety (in which case this CBT based program can help).

Which Type Are You? Are You More Of A Fighter, Flighter, Or A Free-zer?

Get ready to learn what to do and not to do today regarding the specific type of stress response you engage in the most. To tame the fight, flight or freeze response means to shift the way it sees that current situation. This makes it easier for the person to allow a more neutral response the next time the same situation shows up. Every little piece of evidence gets recorded within the subconscious mind. More safety, more pleasant responses in the future.

I’m also going to share with you how your support person must respond to you having an episode. It’s imperative that the language the anxiety supporter uses is geared towards helping the sufferer tap into their thinking mind. The pre-frontal cortex of the brain is what separates us humans from all the other species. We just never learned how to use it properly, until now.

Today we’ll be focusing on the fight, flight or freeze response as well as:

  • The most common mistakes an anxiety sufferer makes in that vital moment of panic
  • The worst thing you can do as an anxiety supporter
  • How to begin turning your panic volume down starting today
