Yours Is Bigger Than Mine
Back to the movie I was talking about yesterday….
They have a scene in which the main character gets a brain scan and they find out that his amygdala is very ‘quiet’.
In case you haven’t been exposed to Mind Mapping yet, the amygdala is part of your reptilian brain that is always scanning your environment for threats.
Alex’s amygdala needs an extreme amount of threat to ‘light up’.
Is this nature or nurture?
Probably a bit of both, but I can tell you that I believe I have tamed my amygdala over the years by exposing myself to high risk journeys and practicing meditation.
The more you are exposed to something, the less frightening it is. And meditation helps you become aware of when you are thinking emotionally and irrationally.
Don’t avoid the edge of your comfort zone, learn how to expand your comfort zone.
If you are always living at capacity, any little thing can make your amygdala sound the alarms. In this case, it’s not good to have a ‘bigger’ one (more active:)).
