In case you didn’t know I’ve been running a 21-day challenge through my Facebook group which has been going brilliantly – well apart from one or two technical challenges!!
We started off on day one, talking about getting in the right mindset. It’s crucial to be in the right mindset to be able to deal with the unusual circumstances that we’re going through at the moment.
One thing that can really help with our mindset is reducing the amount of negativity that we are surrounded by. And I would say that 90% of the negativity that surrounds us is on social media.
So, here’s a little tip for something that I would like you to do today.
Go to your social media channels. I personally use Facebook for most of my social media. And so that was my focus.
Start to scroll down through your newsfeed and identify the repeat offenders who consistently post out negative chatter. These can be the people who constantly post and share scaremongering stories, conspiracy theories, political diatribe or just moan and groan.
Pick out every single post you see where you feel your energy instantly drain from you, or even just by seeing a particular person’s name, you feel your energy drain.
Remove the negativity
Now, do one of two things.
- If this is someone that you really do not care whether you ever see or speak to them again in your life, I suggest that you simply go and unfriend them.
- However, if it’s someone that you feel you would like to keep in contact with for the future just unfollow them. They won’t know that you’ve done this, they will stay as your friend, but you will stop seeing the negative chatter popping up on your newsfeed, day after day.
You can follow this procedure with groups you are in where all you see is negativity and arguing. Simply unfollow.
Surround yourself with positivity
The next thing to do is to go back through your newsfeed and look at the people that when you see their name you instantly feel your energy being lifted, whether because they’ve who’s such positivity, or whether it’s because they make you laugh.
Now select those to pop up in your newsfeed first. You want to be filling yourself with these positive-minded people to help you stay in a positive mindset.
Honestly, I promise you if you do this, you will feel so much better.
Get rid of the mood Hoover’s those people that suck the energy out of you. And fill your life with people who make you feel good.
