In our natural state of being, we are cool, calm and collected. When both sides of our brain are functioning, our body temperature is regulated and we may focus on whatever it is that we must do. When our adrenals are activated and consequently fatigued, our corpus callosums (which normally allow our brains to gather information from their right and left sides) shut down, reverting us to our primal instincts. We are forced into ‘fight, flight or freeze’ (adrenal fatigue) and get hot and sweaty as our bodies go on guard, becoming confused. Our breath becomes shallow and fear, anxiety, and stress start to settle in as our thought processes stop and we become scattered. We may then try to reclaim the control we have lost by desperately seeking control over other things or people. By becoming control freaks, we then allow ourselves to procrastinate from the pursuit of our ultimate visions.
