4 Ways to BEAT negativity

Positivity attracts positivity. It helps uplift, form true friendships, allows for love, and just makes the world a better place. Being positive is also EXTREMELY beneficial to your own health and overall wellness, which for me, produces much more creativity in art. Being positive is a choice. Sometimes its easy. Sometimes its hard. In a world that is exponentially growing in dark negativity, be a positive light. Here are 4 ways to help you remain positive

 

Eliminate negative people from your life. Whether it's a friend, a coworker, colleague, or even a family member, eliminate their negativity from your life the best you can. I understand that TOTALLY eliminating some people is impossible, but there are things you can do to limit your own exposure to their negative vibes. Hide or unfollow them from social media. Many people in this modern society vomit negativity freely without filters on their social medias, merely because its readily available and easy. You cannot control what others say, but you CAN control how YOU see it, and react to it. Merely unfollow or hide them. You'd be surprised how much negativity is eliminated! You can also limit the amount of time spent with these negative people, and do not spend time alone with them when possible. People do tend to be less negative in a group setting. If someone is constantly negative or putting others down, thats a BIG red flag, and run away as fast as you can! 

Start being picky about what you follow, listen to, or read. You would be surprised how your overall mood and happiness is effected by what we allow into our minds via reading, music, or television. Be picky about what you allow yourself to be exposed to. Instantly uplift your spirit by reading a positive article, listening to some positive music, or reading an inspiring book.

Surround yourself with positive influences. There is a saying that states "You are what you eat." Similarly, you ARE who you surround yourself with! If you are constantly around negative people and negative influencers, it will drain the happiness right out of you. Negativity feeds off negativity, and positivity multiplies positivity! Find like-minded, encouraging, and uplifting people and surround yourself with them. Learn from them. Grow with them. 

BE a positive influence! Lastly, the best way to receive positive vibes, is to BE positive to the world, and anyone and anyone that crosses your path. Refrain from talking negative, tearing others apart, gossip, and any other negative vomit that can be so easily spewed. If someone upsets you, say something positive about them. If someone is sad, uplift them. If someone bad mouths you, ignore them and move on. Never feed into negativity. Im definitely NOT saying to bury your feelings. Hurt if someone hurts you, be angry if someone angers you....just dont fire right back at them. It may FEEL like the right thing to do, but it just makes you look terrible. Take the high road. The more you strive toward being an overall positive person, the more happy and at peace with the world you will become. And the more positivity you will attract into your life.

Much love...and positive vibes,
