Mastering Panic


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Panic is perhaps the most intense and the most challenging of all human emotions.  What is panic, and how can we best understand it?

Panic comes from the "fight-or-flight" response that all of us have and that has been key to our survival as a species.  In prehistoric times, when a saber-toothed tiger or neighboring cannibal tribe wanted to have us for dinner, the fight-or-flight response kicked in.  Instantly, we would have superhuman strength and speed, to either fight or flee.
