Modern day life style has high exposure to anger, hate, fear and other negative emotions. Normally, any life threatening situation triggers off the STRESS RESPONSE. This response enables a person to act quickly and survive intense, short- term challenges, which require less brains and fast reflexes. This is possibly the survival response inherited from our pre-civilisation days. But today the same response is triggered in traffic jams, work related irritations, family squabbles and many such situations- meaning that with any petty problem, we end up being an insecure individual and an unstable society.
