Life in today’s society can pull people in a thousand different directions daily. Meeting the demands of work, home, family, and personal life can make it easy to forget about other people, and the impact your positive or negative energy can have on their day. Your positivity or negativity can impact not only one person but everyone they also come in contact with – thus causing a ripple effect.
More specifically, when our moods are positive three times more than they are negative, or if our positive-to-negative ratio is three-to-one, we reach a tipping point where we experience an “upward spiral” of positivity and everything appears to fall into place for our moods and performance. Who doesn’t want that?
5 Simple Tips to tip the scale in favour of Positive Energy:
1: Smile! Smiling is not only a part of our universal language, but an effective way to lift your mood and the mood of those around you. And not only does smiling look good on you, it’s contagious!
2: Compliment someone: You never know what kind of day someone may be having. A simple compliment may improve their mood.
3: Practice Gratitude Daily: On waking lists 5 things you are grateful for to set your day up in a positive way. Many Personal Development Gurus will tell you that “What we think about – We bring about” so make sure you focus on being grateful for what you have so you can bring more of that into your life.
4: Count Your Wins: At the end of every day – count your wins – no matter how big or small – don’t beat yourself up for what you didn’t achieve during the day – only focus on what you did achieve and allow yourself to feel good about that.
5: Meditate. Mediation allows you to dissolve negative energy, you don’t need to go all zen – just take 5 minutes to calm your mind – replace any negative thoughts immediately with positive ones – the positive energy you have access to will put you in a more positive place to allow you to share positive energy.
