When we encounter something frightening, such as the sound of someone in your house at 3am, your nervous system releases nor-epinephrine. Once tired, you’ll suddenly feel the need to spring into action! Your heart starts to pound and hearing and vision become extremely acute while muscles tighten for attack.
