4 Ways To Stop Absorbing Other People's Negative Energy
When you've let a chronically negative person into your life, it can be hard to evict their toxic energy once they've moved on. These are four useful ways to keep from absorbing that negative energy.
1. Take responsibility for yourself.
The way you feel and the things you do is completely up to you. Maybe we're tested by some of the people who enter our lives, but all things considered, you're the one in charge of how you feel. You simply must make a conscious decision not to be impacted by the energy of negative people. That's step number one.
2. Take some time to breathe.
When I'm surrounded by negative vibes, I just pick up and leave and head to the woods. I spend time in nature because it makes me feel purified in a sense. Like all negativity is washed off of me. Once there, I breathe deeply. I smell the air. I let it revitalize me. When I inhale, I breathe in neutral energy. Once mine, I make it good. When I exhale, I breathe out the negative energy. It's rather therapeutic.
