It’s 8 pm you bring your child to bed and are so tired that you either fall asleep with them or seconds later on the couch.

Another normal day — with endless demands and tasks.

You are ‘on’ 24/7.

Fight or flight mode is a genius invention by nature, it helps to mobilize lots of energy when needed to survive — like running away from a tiger.

Cortisol and adrenalin kick in — we run and make it. Yeah!
