When we encounter a life-threatening situation, a surge of stress hormones prepares us to fight or to flee, an automatic fight-or-flight response of the sympathetic nervous system. It used to happen in caveman times when there was an immediate danger. But now, we activate this fight-or-flight response every day, several times a day, not because of real danger, but in reaction to situations that are not life-threatening. To everyday stressors.
