While decluttering our home and work environments promotes and contributes to positive energy, hence happiness, proactively clearing negative energy is equally important.
Energy flows and its impacted by everything and everyone in our lives, including ourselves! As we all know it, positive energy is contagious, but so is the negative energy. Energy also has a multiplier effect. If we are in a positive state of mind, we’re much more likely to remain in this state and the same applies to negative energy. This is why it’s so important to proactively guard ourselves from being sucked into a “vortex” of negativity. In reality, a cycle of negativity happens to nearly everyone, however, we all the power to replace it with positive energy.
Below are some examples of how to recognize and clear negative energy, hence promote positive energy and happiness:
1. Do you find yourself constantly complaining when in a certain situation?
Certain situations can invoke more negative energy than others. Work and home are probably the most common environments where this happens. It can also be in a relationship or while in the company of certain people.
Solution: Get out of the situation as soon as possible and consider what's best for you.
2. Do you find yourself in a consistent feeling of being angry or on-edge?
When anger becomes a persistent emotion, it’s detrimental to our physical and emotional health. The stress caused by feeling angry or on-edge surpasses that of any other emotion. Therefore, it’s important to either eliminate or minimize anger by taking actions.
Solution: Become emotionally aware. Acknowledge your emotions, whatever, they might be and take actions, instead of ignoring them.
3. Do you find yourself in a persistent feeling of anxiety and depression?
These are among the most two commonly symptoms of living or working in negative and toxic environments. Constantly feeling anxious or depressed is a force of negative energy that needs to be addressed.
Solution: Put aside some time to reflect on your emotions. Write down what’s bothering you and what needs to be done to address the cause of your anxiety and depression. There are steps that we all can take to bring reliefs, don’t hesitate to take them.
4. Do you find interaction with people becoming difficult or exhausting?
When we’re in a negative environment, normal interactions with other people can become physically and emotionally exhausting, because we’re too wrapped up with our own inner thoughts/emotions and by default can't be present.
Solution: No matter how difficult the situation we are in, there is always a solution, which takes times and efforts to identify. In the meantime, by being present and actively listening to others, not only it will serve as a great distraction, but also we might learn something new to help our situation.
5. Do you find yourself increasingly seeking isolation more frequently?
When caught up in a negative energy cycle, some people have the tendency to isolate themselves from others and specially their loved ones. While some alone time is healthy, it’s not healthy to experience a sudden desire for seclusion, especially if this was not the case before.
Solution: Know that people care. Don’t be afraid or hesitant to ask for help, instead of trying to fix everything yourself! Take this simple approach: briefly describe the situation to people that you trust and ask: how would you handle this situation or what do you think is the best solution?
We are all capable and intelligent people and it's perfectly okay to ask for help, simply because other people may know of solutions that we had not thought of or considered.
