The stress response is often only defined as Flight or Flight – the muscles are fGrief 2illed with blood to enable these two primal responses to danger.

We often forget the third primal response to  danger: Freeze!

These images are here to jolt you, to remind you of what’s in the background for you.

Your best line of thought is clarity.  Being aware of your current state is critical.

If you are grieving, grieve.

At least admit you are grieving.

Then you have a fighting chance of thinking clearly.
