84. Fear is excitement without the breath

By 23. Dezember 2019No Comments

The word „fear“ translated from Indo-European means „that which belongs to the tightness“.

Our whole body functions fundamentally on our nervous system – the brake and accelerator pedal of our lives. Everything that is new, surprising and different excites our nervous system. We get ready for action or flight. Blood pressure is rising. The heartbeat increases. The chest becomes tight.

When your heart throbs up your neck and you are about to piss your pants, remember: Fear is only excitement without the breath. Maybe it’s enough to just take a breath and go forward courageously.

Fun is excitement plus oxygen.
