How to choose and anchor your emotional state
Updated: May 26
Emotional resilience is not something we are all born with, but it is something we can develop with some simple habits and techniques.
Have you ever had a day when you have woken up feeling happy and vibrant only to find that it disappears after a few moments in the office? Or perhaps after a few moments talking to your mother on the phone? Our emotions can feel like changeable things that are at the behest of others and our situation. But that is only a story we tell ourselves. We often believe that our emotions are something that we have very little control over, yet when we consciously choose to be calm, happy and peaceful, we find that this will remain the case for as long as we make that our choice. In this short video, I demonstrate a simple technique to enable you to anchor your emotional state. It’s very quick and easy and allows you to have an immediate and quick way of reconnecting to your chosen emotional state, rather having one imposed on you by circumstances. Give it a go and see what you think.
