How We Naturally Relieve Stress
Exercise has often been touted—accurately, we might add— as an extremely effective means of relieving stress. And small wonder!
Thousands of years of evolution have conditioned our bodies to respond to stress with action.
This is so because the earliest human beings lived in a hazardous, terrifying world.
One in which only those who reacted swiftly and decisively to the threats around them survived to pass on their genes to later generations.
Can you imagine, for example, how stressful your life would be if, like a primitive hunter, you had to take down a huge, aggressive animal with a slender wooden spear or a stone-tipped arrow, or face the prospect of starvation if you failed?
Or if your only refuge from the winter cold was a dark, dank cave, which other predators such as bears and wolves might also wish to inhabit?
Well, our distant biological ancestors faced these kinds of challenges every day.
From them, we have inherited an elaborate internal alarm system that not only alerts us to menacing situations but also physically prepares us to respond by either combating or fleeing the perceived threat, this is called the fight or flight response.
