How To Undo The Physical Effects of Fear
Fear is functional, but it carries unintended consequences. The good news is, positive emotions can undo the physical effects of stress. In fact, studies have shown that one strategy in particular (eliciting the relaxation response) may enable you to manage stress and fear. That’s because the relaxation response is the opposite of the body’s (fight or flight) response. When we feel positive emotions like happiness, physiologically, our nervous systems calm down. So, if positive emotions can help undo the effects of fear, the question then is how do we stimulate happiness in a time of such fear?
