When we realize any danger, brain reflex changes the body functions. These changes are meant to give big muscles more energy to fight or escape from the crisis. Theses changes in the body are for body movements, to run or to fight but irony is we don’t move our body in that moment. In modern age we can’t escape from danger by physically running from it because danger is not from tiger but from lack of resources. We have to think to solve the problem. In stress, body changes are made for running but we are sitting in the chair thinking about the crisis. This condition is icing over cake which causes many physical diseases.
