You betcha…and the only reason it is a shock, is because we weren’t ready for it.
When we are shocked by a situation, event or even a cold shower, it’s just because we are taken by surprise and have a hard time getting our heads, or our body around what just happened.
And getting shocked simply elevates our internal structures and functions to rise to the occasion.
It’s the “fight or flight” reaction of our body – where our autonomic nervous system shifts to meet the demand – the sympathetic nervous system takes over and the parasympathetic nervous system cools down – all to better help us deal with what we didn’t see coming.
So our body rises to the occasion, and so can we, and sometimes a little shock is what we all need to get us out of “idle”.
