How Do We Get Used to Getting Stressed!
Change is often perceived and experienced as an annoyance or frustration, or as scary, frightening, and dangerous. Change is may be experienced as a threat and this is where the problem arises.
When we are threatened by anything including change, we respond with a typical alarm reaction. It does not matter what the nature of the threat is. As long threat is perceived then this alarm reaction, which is the natural, built-in response of our bodies, will occur. Our bodies only know how to do one thing when confronted with a threat, and this one thing is what they always do. It is what the human body has done since the time of the caveman. When a threat is perceived the body goes into an emergency or stress reaction characterized by a state of heightened physiological arousal. Today, with so much potentially threatening change surrounding us, we often live our lives in an almost continual stress reaction.
As a citizen of modern society it is likely that you are in a mild stress reaction right now and that you do not know it. You might be in a stress reaction and not know it because you have gotten used to it. You have been in such a state of emergency preparedness so long that you now think that this state is normal and no longer notice it. You have "habituated" to the problem of stress.
