(From the article): As it turns out, restricting our use of our gadgets in the evening hours is probably a pretty smart move, and makes sense on a bunch of different levels. It may be time to take the workday back, at least in part, and when it comes to responding to a colleague at some ungodly hour, to just say “no.” Or at least, “I’ll get back to you during business hours.”

"Fight or Flight" Theory Debunked: Stress Makes Men More Sociable and Cooperative

"Fight or Flight" Theory Debunked: Stress Makes Men More Sociable and Cooperative | Serving and Leadership | Scoop.it
Rather than succumbing to the primitive “fight or flight” instinct, men actually become more sociable and cooperative when under stress, according to new psychological study.

 

Researchers from the University of Freiburg, Germany said that their latest findings debunk “a nearly 100-year-old doctrine,” that while women showed an alternate "tend-and-befriend" response to stress and became more protective and more sociable, and men became more aggressive.

 

Rather than succumbing to the primitive “fight or flight” instinct, when under stress men actually become more sociable and cooperative, according to new psychological study.

My thoughts:

I have noticed that i am stressed often. This is really no fun, i hate being stressed. This article informed me of some ways i can cope with it. I need to find someone i can talk to about myself. Keeping thoughts in will just cause more stress that i dont need. Also eating healthier will reduce stress. Taking a breather and maybe even doing yoga will help me deal with my stress. Stress is very bad for you it can actually affect your health and being this young i shouldnt even need to stress about anything.
