Positive Spaces: A Guide to Eliminating the Negative Energy In & Around You

Close your eyes, take a deep breath, and as you exhale imagine you are breathing out all the negativity around you. 

How do you feel now? Lighter? Happier? Full of positive energy?

What if there was a way of getting rid of negative energy and creating positive energy in your life every day?

Lucky for you, there is!

If you feel like you are surrounded by negative energy and you want to replace it with positive vibes, look no further. This guide will provide you with all the information you need to live a more positive life.

Getting Rid of Negative Energy

While it is hard to define negative energy, we have all felt it before. Whether you feel it in a given space, or as a result of another person's emotions, negative energy can be toxic.

It's not enough to just think positive thoughts. You have to be able to rid yourself of the bad energy to make room for the positive energy.

How do you do that? Simple! Try some of these tips on ridding yourself of negative energy.

1. Meditation

Meditation is an ancient practice that helps clear your mind, reduce your anxiety, and clear your mind and space of negative energy.

If you are new to meditation, research and try a few techniques and decide which one might be right for you.

As with many other skills, meditation takes devotion and practice to experience the benefits. Try a short meditation every day for a week and notice the negative energy melting away.

2. Clean and Declutter 

If you aim to cleanse your mind and energy, start with cleaning your environment. A cluttered office or living room may be preventing you from removing negative energy in your body and mind.

Commit to cleaning your space and reflect on how you now feel in that space. 

3. Fresh Air

Getting fresh air is an easy way to reduce your negative energy. A ray of sunlight on your face, a gentle breeze, or the sound of birds has a naturally calming effect that can jump-start the process of replacing negative energy with positive energy.

Even the opening of curtains and windows can make a difference! Let some natural light and air into your home. You can even try a house plant to bring nature inside!

4. Take A Bath

Never underestimate the power of a luxurious bath. Using essential oils or scented bubble bath can release the tension and anxiety caused by negative energy.

If you don't have access to a bathtub, try lighting a scented candle or smudging sage to use your olfactory senses to get rid of negativity around you.

5. Sip A Cup of Tea

If you find yourself full of negative energy, you may be tempted to reach for comfort food. Instead of indulging in food that will only make you feel worse in an hour, try a cup of herbal tea.

As you sip your tea, focus on the moment you are currently in, and let go of the negative energy that plagues you.

And if you want to go above and beyond, try sipping your tea from a motivational tumbler.

Creating Positive Spaces

Once you have successfully purged of the negativity, it is time to create a positive space instead. 

Ready? Let's go!

1. A Token of Positivity

A token of positivity is a physical reminder of your desire to create positivity in your life. It represents the desire to cultivate a positive, happy space

Try using something like a bracelet or a necklace to remind yourself of your commitment to a more positive lifestyle. When you look at this item it will remind you to shift your outlook to a more positive one.

2 Surround Yourself With Positivity

The people you spend time with can have a huge impact on your energy and even your emotional health. 

Think carefully about the people that you spend the most time with. Are they all mostly positive influences in your life? Or are there some of them that consistently bring negativity?

If someone specific comes to mind, consider reducing the time you spend with them or ending the relationship altogether. They may be impacting your ability to harness the good and eliminate the bad.

3. Gratitude 

Stop! Before you go any further, take a minute to think about 3 things you are grateful for.

How do you feel? 

Practicing gratitude is a great way to focus on the positive and rid yourself of the negative. If you take the time to write down a few things you are grateful for every day you will notice a difference in positive energy.

4. Move Your Body

One of the best natural ways to enhance your mood is to move your body! It can be a traditional form of exercise, like spin class or resistance training, but it can also be something fun! Gardening, dancing, taking a walk with friends are all acceptable choices!

Moving more will give your body and you mind a sense of positivity and even give you more energy.

5. A Relaxing Routine

Whether you are a morning bird or a night owl, establishing a healthy routine can create positivity by eliminating stress and anxiety. 

If you take the time to establish a routine, there will be less room for unknown situations that cause you to let the negativity in. 

Try to set your alarm and your bedtime consistently to ensure you are getting enough sleep. Then, list a few activities that you think you can put into your routine every day. Make sure that these are the types of activities that bring you joy and relaxation rather than focusing on productivity.

You Can Do This!

Transforming your life to be more positive is not an easy task. Prepare to work hard and reap all the rewards!

Getting rid of negative energy can be good for your physical, mental, and emotional health. It can help you remain more focused and allow you to spend time on the things that bring you joy.
