We are living in hectic times in 2018. There has been so many problems and controversies brought up recently that it’s easy to find yourself in a very low and negative space. Even in your personal life, all of our experiences create an emotional reaction in our bodies. We’re either on the positive end of it, or the negative.
These days, we have to find ways to protect what positivity we do have, and find ways to show it in our everyday lives. Between social media, politics, work, school, parenting, marriage and any other responsibility in this world, negativity can somehow creep it’s way into any of these aspects of your life.
Allowing negative energy into your life can cause a lot of emotional draining, negative self-talk, and an overall decline in mood. The key to protecting your positive energy is combatting those negative responses to the negativity, and putting that much more focus on emitting those positive responses and spreading more positive energy (if your positive is greater than your negative, the positive wins, right?
Now more than ever, we have to learn how to make our positive energy more abundantly present in our lives, because negativity comes in all forms. Here are four ways to protect your positive energy when negative tries to enter your space:
* Saying no to negative people- sometimes the best remedy to negativity is simply telling yourself “no” to keeping those negative people around you. If they do not mean well, then they need to be removed from your atmosphere.
* Giving yourself room for error- Nobody in life is perfect, and sometimes negative energy can be self-inflicted. Do not put yourself on an unattainable pedastal. We all have flaws and we all mess up in life. Give yourself a little room for error and room for positive correction.
* Laugh or cry sometimes- sometimes, you need a moment to let out a healthy, hearty laugh; or have a good cry over things. That’s ok. Never let negative energy build up. If you need to, find healthy ways to deal with that type of energy; laughing, crying or even talking to someone can help eliminate those types of emotions lying dormant in your mind.
* Self-awareness- Being aware of the things you like and don’t like, or having an idea about the energy you’re projecting will allow you to understand how to release negative energy and protect your positive energy.
Adopting these four ways to protect your energy will be key to giving yourself the much needed tools to deal with the negativity, and bring forth more of your “feel-good” emotions. The overall goal is to not allow negativity to live within you; always let your positive attitude prevail!
