What you consume on a daily basis has a massive effect on your energy and wellbeing. Much bigger than you probably even realise.
Whether it's content you watch on social media, TV, or even just what you absorb from time spent with energy-draining friends and colleagues, it all has the ability to affect your mood and mindset,
This issue came up with a client the other day, when they came to the realisation that their TV habits were affecting their positivity and outlook on life.
Your energy, vibration and mindset have a significant impact your levels of happiness and on what and who you attract, and that's why it's really important to protect them.
Last year, I made a conscious decision to unfollow news accounts on social media, and limit the amount of news I watched on TV.
Media outlets generally report on the most shocking, depressing, negative aspects of humanity, because that's what sells. Humanity craves that morbid curiosity.
I also made a conscious decision to be more mindful of the TV I'm watching. Yes, the serial killer documentaries on Netflix are intriguing in their own way, but again, you are consuming the very worst energy of humanity.
I'm not digging my head in the sand when it comes to the realities of the world. I understand that bad things happen, I make sure to keep up with the most important current affairs that ACTUALLY affect me, but I want to be able to control how much of that stuff I consume, and when.
Here are some tips from me on protecting your energy:
1️⃣ Choose to follow people on social media who you aspire to be like. Those who share positive, authentic and inspiring content that doesn't leave you feeling jealous or comparing yourself to impossible standards.
2️⃣ Spend as much time as possible with people who light you up, encourage you, are happy for your successes, and leave you with that warm glow after you've been around them.
3️⃣ Curate and limit your exposure to sensational media coverage, depressing or dark TV programmes.
4️⃣ Try to avoid being drawn into bitter debates or arguments that are unlikely to have a positive outcome.
