Fear is a feeling induced by perceived danger or threat that occurs in certain types of organisms, which causes a change in metabolic and organ functions and ultimately a change in behavior, such as fleeing, hiding, or freezing from perceived traumatic events.

But is fear a good thing? In this episode we talk about fear being a motivator or destroyer; explore how it factors into anxiety; and share ideas on how to manage it!
