How can you protect yourself from negative energy?


Dear reader,

It has been a while since my last blog, so it was time for a new one. Today I like to cover the topic of “negative energy”, because this is unfortunately something we all have to deal with every day and it can affect our day more than we think.

Later in this blog, I will share some tips that I myself apply to shut myself off from this, but first; what consequences does it actually have when you are regularly exposed to negativity? For instance, it can directly lower your own energy levels, we all know the feeling that other people can “drain” you, so to speak, by taking you along with them in their negativity. By consciously strengthen yourself against these negative influences, you can, for example, build an “imaginary wall” that will help you maintain your sense of inner balance and positivity when faced with it.

But what exactly is negative energy?

Negative energy is something invisible and disrupts your peace, balance, positivity and overall well-being. It can come from various sources, such as friendship or love relationships, stressful environments or even from a “stranger” at the supermarket, bakery or in traffic 😉. When we encounter negative energy, we can feel exhausted, anxious, irritable and overwhelmed.

My tricks to protect yourself from negative energy 😊

  • Smile and radiate positivity

This is a very important one for me, often you notice that negative energy from others is a reflection of how this particular person is feeling  at that moment. By smiling and radiating kindness and positive energy, you not only “rejoice” your own mind, but also create a “shield” of positive vibes around you. Negative energy often thrives on bringing others down, but by radiating positivity, you create a barrier that helps deflect this energy. This can also have a contagious effect on those around you, spreading positivity.

I regularly smile at other people who on the other hand do not treat me with respect, however, I smile largely for myself, because I do not want to allow this particular person to take me into his/her negative energy, it is simply not worth it to me. And if, at the same time, I can thereby give that other person a little bit of positivity, it’s a win-win!

  • State your boundaries clearly

Saying ‘no’ can sometimes be tricky, and believe me I know, I am not very good at it after all, but setting clear and healthy boundaries is crucial for maintaining a positive emotional and mental state. If you overdo it, hang out with negative people or undertake activities that drain your energy, it can have a negative effect on your state of mind. However, by setting boundaries, you set guidelines for what you will and will not tolerate in terms of negative energy.Of course, in doing so, it is very important that you start analysing which situations or people you feel uncomfortable or even exhausted with. When you have a clear picture of this, indicate your boundaries in these situations and/or with these people in a respectful but clear manner. Let others know what you feel comfortable with and what goes too far for you, and build the inner strength to indicate your boundaries and prioritise your own mental and emotional health.

  • Surround yourself with positive people

This is also so important for me, as there are people who give me so much positive energy and at the same time there are people who do the opposite. The company we are in obviously has a huge impact on our energy levels and overall well-being. It is important to choose wisely how your daily life affects it.

Surround yourself with people who uplift and inspire you. Seek out friends, acquaintances, sports communities etc that “breath” positivity and encourage personal growth. Seek out people who have a strong sense of self-awareness and are committed to their own personal development. And above all, look for people who encourage you, rather than put you down.

On the other hand, limit interaction with people who constantly have bad attitudes or emit negative vibes. Toxic people suck away your energy and make you feel exhausted and discouraged. It can be difficult and painful to cut ties with negative influences, especially if they are close friends or family members, but this temporary discomfort will pave the way for long-term peace and positivity in your life.

Easier said than done…

Of course, I realise that these tips are not always easy to put into practice, and believe me, there are days when I can’t manage this either. And at the same time, I notice that one of the advantages of “getting older” is that you care less about what other people think of you. You start to realise more every day that you can’t please everyone after all, and that’s not what’s important. Choose for yourself and for your loved ones.

Finally, I would like to ask you, as we have come to the end of this blog, put a big smile on your face and analyse what this is doing (mentally and physically) to you, feels good right? Keep this feeling for as long as possible and protect yourself from negative influences😊!!!

Thanks for reading along and until next time, looking forward to it!
