For example, our frontal lobes comprise 20 percent of our brain; a cat’s frontal lobes, by contrast, comprise only 3 percent of its brain. That alone says a lot about the difference between our species. Cats don’t think about anxiety or read books about it. When they become anxious around someone, it’s extraordinarily hard for them to learn not to be anxious around that person. Humans can make such changes more quickly. That’s because our frontal lobes decide what to do, how to stay positive, and how to appreciate the larger picture of life.

Your left frontal lobe and your orbital frontal cortex can shut down the HPA axis and the fight-or-flight response. This happens when you activate your left frontal lobe by labeling a situation from a realistic perspective, then take action by doing something positive.

Using this system, you can learn to tame your amygdala.
