Why people get stuck

You’ve most likely heard of the “Fight or Flight” response.

It’s our body’s primary reaction to stress or anxiety, and it gets us ready to fight or run away when we think we are in danger.

But fight and flight have a cousin called, “Freeze”.

Freeze leaves us “frozen with fear”, unable to move or think, just like a rabbit caught in the headlights.

Freeze is being so anxious about the test that you can’t think straight enough to study.

Or being so overwhelmed by a task that you never get started.

Or being so frightened of failing that you never actually try.

Or any number of situations where you find yourself procrastinating.

And that, my friends, is why stress and anxiety so often keeps people stuck.

It doesn’t have to be like that though.

To get yourself defrosted and moving again, all you have to do is book a session.
