Lol, yeah the awareness thing might make one a little tired.
Here is one of the training scenerio we've used as a basic in understanding and dealing with this reaction....mind you this is a version and anyone can do it any way they choose or create the same goal and choose a different way of obtaining that goal.
We have a tree which is cut down out back, (a long tree), then at the end of the tree we have 2 large stumps in the ground about 5 feet away from each other, and after that we have a smaller thinner tree which is suspended up off the ground a little by some bricks on each end. Making a long obsticle course.
At the first tree, there are 2-3 students with staffs standing beside the tree, on both sides. The stumps, there are two students standing beside each, and on the last thin tree, there is a student standing upon it.
The goal is to get to the other side without falling off the trees or the stumps as effectively as possible. (if you fall off you have to start again, and again, and again until you finish the task) As you walk the first tree, the students with the staff tries to push, or strike you off and basically you have to get past them. On the stumps, the students try to knock you off again, and on the last tree...the person tries to do the same.
Now...this is basic training for dealing with the stress and trying to reach an outcome which you have set for yourself. This is one of many ways we've trained to deal with the Fight or Flight response....anyone else have any others or anything?
