Do you think before you do?

We all know about the flight or flight reaction, the automatic reaction that the brain uses to protect you. The problem is that it sometimes kicks in when it is not needed. An example of this could be that someone steals an idea of yours at work. We know that we can’t fight them or just run off. Getting into the habit of just pausing for 90 seconds, can calm this fight or flight reaction down. It will also get your thinking from the emotional part of your brain to the logical side. This is crucial for our decision making and reactions to emotional situations.

“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms – to choose one’s attitude in any given circumstances, to choose one’s own way. When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.” Viktor Frankl

So let’s all take a pause before we react.
