Stress is all around us, it is something that every one of us has to deal with on a daily basis. What makes us who we are is how we handle those stressful situations day in and day out.
Ed Lacheta is with the Shelby County Community Services. He says there is something called the automatic nervous system that will all have and stress has an impact on it.
There is a second part to the automatic nervous system that is supposed to bring you back from the fight or flight experience.
Where people will run into an issue is when the automatic nervous system becomes dysfunctional and it can come from being over stimulated and often people are left in fight or flight more than they should be.
Lacheta appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show live from our downtown Shelbyville studios.
