Fight-or-flight response is an evolutionary survival mechanism that’s wreaking havoc in our lives today, and most of us don’t even realize it! It is a primitive reaction that triggers the release of hormones and other chemicals in the body to help us respond to a perceived threat, whether real or imagined. Basically, it’s genetic instructions that tell us to run when we can and fight only as a last resort. What’s troubling is that this crude mechanism, though still applicable in today’s settings, is causing us more harm than good. Because we’re not meant to simply survive...we all NEED to THRIVE! Here’s where it gets tricky: it seems like most of us will keep running away from living a healthy lifestyle until they no longer can, at which point, “fighting” is no longer an option. Why run from healthy living? It’s because most of us have grown accustomed and comfortable with eating junk food, drinking alcohol, and getting little to no sleep – to the point where real food, water and sleep have become “threatening” to a “way of life”. Here’s some news to get things into perspective… Not getting your dose of sugary treats or your buzz from booze or missing an episode of your fave sitcom aren’t threats… Poor health and obesity are the REAL THREATS! And we keep running towards ‘em every darn time! This has GOT TO CHANGE! And part of that change is creating a mindset where the fight-or-flight response serves our purpose (and not the other way around). Today, let’s talk about harnessing this powerful mechanism, learning to stand and fight, and moving from a state of survival to a state where we all can thrive! Tune in to this week's episode to learn more about creating a mindset that unconditionally fights for the healthy life we deserve! ------------ I am speaking at Keto Con happening in July in Austin Texas.  Please come join me.  Grab your ticket at https://ketocon.org CodeRed10 for 10% off your ticket --------------- Have you seen our new app?  Even when your other social platforms are unavailable we are here for you on the Code Red App www.coderedlifestyle.com/app Lose your first, next, or last 10 pounds with absolutely NO pills, powders, shakes, or exercise required.  Click Below to join the challenge! http://bit.ly/10lbtakedown Be sure to grab your copy of my book, The Code Red Revolution here.  http://bit.ly/coderedbook Grab your very own Code Red water bottle today.  The link is below! https://bit.ly/crwaterbottle Connect with Cristy: Facebook http://bit.ly/cristycoderedfb Instagram http://bit.ly/cristycoderedIG LinkedIn http://bit.ly/cristycoderedLI YouTube
