Yes, we can.
In a place where one’s every move can be recorded and shared with the world in an instant, it is becoming easier and easier to connect with others. Distance is no longer an issue to many.
In the same manner, it has also become easier to be touched by negativity. It is in what we see on the news, in every social media feeds, and of course, life in general.
If there is one thing we don’t want to take with us when progress happens, it is negativity. Why? Not only it affects the way we think, it also greatly affects the way we act towards ourselves and others.
Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. These are the techniques we use to avoid negativity most times, if not all the time:
Stay away from negative people
The first step you need to take is staying away from negative people. It is like pruning your garden; you remove the weeds to give room to flowers and vegetables to grow. The same way with people and the ones we spend a lot of our time with, such as friends and family. We need people who help us be positive and add value to our lives and dreams. The sooner we remove them from our lives, or we remove ourselves from them, the better.
There is no reason to gossip although it seems to be something many people do. We don’t get anything from it, and it does not do any good to anyone either. Remember that whenever you gossip to someone, that same person will most likely gossip about you, too. Not only gossip has a negative impact on the people you are gossiping about, but it also has a negative impact on you. It is also a huge waste of time, and that alone is enough to make us want to stay away from it.
Be thankful for everything you have, even the smallest things, especially the smallest things, because in the end, these are the things that really matter. Life is not as easy as we want it to be but it is still the greatest gift human being has been bestowed. Let us appreciate what we have and never get tired of working on the things we want and don’t have.
Don’t be shy to let the world hear your laughter. It is one of the most beautiful music one could ever make. Smile when you look in the mirror, smile at others, laugh at silly jokes, laugh at yourself. Positivity has no bounds. For example, when we make mistakes, we laugh at ourselves, because it makes us feel better, because being hard on ourselves is not an option. Laugher makes us happy, and when we are happy, negativity will not touch us.
It is easy to inject negativity in life, but it is easier to cling to positivity, isn’t it?
