Protect Your EnergyπŸ§˜πŸ”‹βœ¨

Being tapped into our energy and the energy of those around us can be beneficial. If you are someone who is sensitive to the emotions of those around you or someone who is easily influenced by the energies and opinions of others, this blogpost may be helpful. If you are an empath or highly sensitive person, soaking up negative energy of those around you can leave you feeling drained and exhausted. If someone or something is mentally draining you, you are going to feel terrible. Protecting your energy is important for your mental and physical health and determines your overall happiness. 🧘

Below are some ways you can protect your emotional energy and inner peace

  • Tune into how you are feeling
  • Trust in yourself
  • Be less reactive, or non-reactive
  • Learn to say No to people who drain you. Do you often say β€œyes” to things you don’t feel like doing, just to be polite, or because you feel like you have to?
  • Please yourself before pleasing others, your needs are important as anybody else’s. Being a people-pleaser can take a toll on your wellbeing
  • Set healthy boundaries and establish healthy relationships
  • Be aware of who or what changes your energy.
  • Let go of things you cannot control
  • Repeat positive affirmations
  • Avoid gossiping
  • Avoid comparing yourself to others
  • Speak kindly to yourself and to others
  • Practice Meditation
  • Spend time in nature
  • Spend some time alone every now and then
  • Use crystals
  • Use essential oils
  • Visualise a bubble of protection around you

It is no secret that toxic people are skilled at draining the life out of you. Cutting energy vampires out of your life or consciously avoiding these leeches will cause a drastic improvement in your psychological wellbeing, happiness and quality of life. Nobody is obliged to stay in a toxic environment or be around these types of people.

The science of body language🀝

‘Kinesics’. A person’s demeanour and their behaviours can tell you a lot about them and their personality. You do not have to know the person and you may have never spoken to them. Body language can be subtle or blatantly obvious and can reveal a lot about a person’s true feelings.

Positive body language: Politeness, handshaking, holding hands, hugs, smiling, positive greetings, waving ;

Portray feelings of happiness, wellness, genuiness, trust, warmth, compassion, openness, love, positivity, authenticity

Negative body language: Arms folded, eyes covered, lack of eye contact, frown, clenched fists, smirk, faced away, talking fast, poor stance, hands in pockets;

Portray feelings of stress, anger, lies, secrecy, arrogance, disappointment, rage, hostility, frustration, hate, boredom, impatience, nervousness

Crossed legs can indicate a variety of one’s intent, depending on the context; engagement in conversation, relaxed mood, unfamiliarity, dominance, not receptive to open communication.

The list goes on and there is a lot of research done on thisπŸ§πŸ”¬
