Avoid Negative People
It can be very difficult to keep a positive mindset when you are surrounding by negative people and situations. Just watching the news and reading the latest news stories is enough to bring you down. Although it may be difficult to stay away from negative people especially if they are in your family, in Val G’s recent post Keep Your Distance From Drama And Negativity she shares some tips on how to identify negative people and drama.
Val states, “Whether you want to call them, drama queens (and kings), energy vampires or just unhappy people, they’ll leave you emotionally drained, stressed and very unhappy if you don’t have effective strategies to handle them. Often, these people are overly negative, critical, argumentative, intrusive, blames others for their problems, and unnecessarily blow petty issues out of proportion.”
Maintaining a positive mindset has many benefits in all areas of your life including health, success and happiness. Don’t underestimate the power of positivity. Not to mention that it just feels good to come from a place of positive thinking versus constantly feeling annoyed, frustrated and negative.
