Vlog 4 Living Through Adversity: A Simple Yet Powerful Practice to Change Your Emotional State

Written By Millen Livis

Today I want to share with you a simple yet powerful practice you can use to change your emotional state…

Last week I spoke with a smart professional woman who wanted to know my opinion about her plans to invest in the stock market…

After just a few minutes into the conversation, I realized that she is NOT in a position to make sound financial decisions…of any kind right now.

The worst decisions I’ve ever made were those made from a place of fear.

This woman was so deeply affected by her fears triggered by the pandemic that it was clouding her thinking…making her consider unwise choices.

This conversation and my own experiences living through adversities made me choose the topic for today’s Vlog.

You know that fear is a natural human reaction to threat.

Our reptilian brain, the oldest of the three brains (the reptilian, limbic and neocortex), controls our body’s vital functions such as heart rate, breathing, body temperature, balance, etc.

And it also controls our survival instincts – Fight, Flight, or Freeze responses.

When we experience emotions like fear, anxiety, worries, and “what if” thinking – our body and mind get into a state of contraction and stress.

And if we stay in this state of stress and contraction for a prolonged period, we may compromise our immune system, get depressed, or experience other diseases.


Fortunately, we can intentionally control our focus (and energy flow).

We can choose to shift our focus, which will help us shift our body and mind from the state of contraction (caused by fearful emotions) to a state of expansion and peacefulness.

One of the techniques I like to practice is living in a state of radical Appreciation.

So, what exactly does it take to live in this state?

In this Vlog #4, I share 3 aspects of this powerful practice.

Let me know your takeaways… What do YOU use to change your emotional states?

To Your Health, Wealth and Freedom!

P.S. Now that we all have to follow “social distancing” guidelines, being connected to like-minded people and having support and communication is more essential than ever.

If you want to be part of such a community of women who are on their journey to personal freedom and financial independence, I invite you to join my PRIVATE and FREE community Wealth Building for Powerful Women.

It’s an awesome sisterhood of brilliant, caring and committed women.
