The teacher wanted to give the students surprise Math Test . He distributed the test on their desk before the students came in.
As they walked in,he announced put away your backpacks bring out your pencils and have your seats.And he distributed the calculators.
They all sat down quietly.One of the students looked at the mathematics and said,”Math,algebra or whatever they call you .My teacher has never taught us this.Immediately
Pupils became dilated due to fear.
He started to tremble.
Heart Rate went up.
His breathing became fast.
His body is ready to respond.
The body ready to respond is been triggered by the release of hormones known as Nor epinephrine and epinephrine, released by
the nervous system and adrenal medulla.
Then the body now prepares to run or stay.And that is; do I take this algebra test
or do go home sick?.
Then here comes the teacher, Paul you are good at this.Remember last time you were helping other students.
Paul then relax did not run but stayed and took the algebra test.
My message here is that everyone needs help sometime.And that sometimes might be now. Give someone support.It could be a colleague that is about to take a test ,start saline lock,first day at work.Simply call them by their first Name and say “you can do this and I am here, if you need me”. By saying that, is sending catalyst that will make a difference. Minimise Flight and Fight reaction for your colleagues or friends.
