How To Protect Your Energy – And Stay Spiritually Grounded – 8 Simple But Effective Ways!
When it comes to our energy, we want to be very careful.
Too much energy and it can lead to negative thinking and feelings of anxiety.
Too little energy and it can lead to feelings of hopelessness and anxiety.
Sometimes we don’t know how to control our energy.
We let it out in unhealthy ways like working out for hours on end or using technology all the time.
Or we let our emotions control us instead of trusting our intuition.
The solution is?
We need to find ways to protect our energy and stay spiritually grounded.
Here are 8 simple but effective ways to do this!
● 1 – Surround yourself with positive people
Life is a marathon and not a sprint.
You are only as good as the company you keep.
Surround yourself with positive people that support you and want to see you succeed.
They will help keep you motivated when things get tough and lift you up when you’re feeling down.
Even if you are an introvert, make time for social outings with friends who have a positive outlook on life.
Having strong friendships will result in having stronger bonds with co-workers.
Spending time with family members can be rewarding.
But if they are negative all the time, leave them at home (with permission of course).
Spending time with them can be enlightening however, it can also be draining.
Make sure that the people around you are focused on improving themselves every day.
And not just looking to vent their frustrations.
Or problems with others, which could spread negativity into your life.
If possible, avoid the negative influences in your life.
And be selective of whom you spend your time with, it’s a small world after all.
● 2 – Be aware of the things you say
Be aware of the things you say.
It’s easy to pick up bad habits and say something hurtful without thinking about it.
If you’ve been feeling down, you may be more likely to take it out on others.
Trying to be as positive as possible can help.
Remind yourself that the smallest things may make a big difference to someone else.
Every little bit helps.
When someone does say something mean, try not to let it get to you.
You’re probably not alone in dealing with mean people.
So you have plenty of company and support on your side.
Focus on your friends and family who do understand and care about you.
And don’t let anyone bring you down.
Even if someone is being mean for no reason, try not to be too hard on yourself.
Think about what they’re saying and why they’re saying it.
Try to find meaning in it even if there isn’t any.”
● 3 – Take a break from social media
Social media is a great tool for connecting with your loved ones.
But it can sometimes be overwhelming or stressful.
You don’t have to delete your accounts or get rid of your phone.
But taking a break from social media can help you find your focus again.
Treat yourself. Spending time away from technology is a good way to relax and do something nice for yourself.
If you find yourself checking social media when you want to take a break from work.
Try going for a walk or listening to music instead.
It’s important to live in the moment instead of trying to document everything that happens in your life online.
Put away your phone and enjoy time with friends and family.
Without having to worry about getting the perfect picture or hashtag.
Spend time with your friends offline. Social media makes it easy to keep up with friends.
But it can also make you feel like you’re always plugged in.
Try spending more time with people face-to-face.
If you’re worried about missing any updates while you unplug.
Make sure they know they can contact you by text message or email if something important comes up.
● 4 – Be kind to yourself spiritauly
There are so many things that we can do to improve our spiritual well-being.
From practicing meditation and mindfulness to reading scripture and spending time in nature, there are many ways to improve our spiritual well-being.
However, it’s important to be kind to ourselves first.
We need to be careful not to put too much pressure on ourselves, and we need to be gentle with ourselves when we’re feeling down.
It’s easy to get wrapped up in our own thoughts and emotions.
But it’s also important to remember that we are all made in the image of God.
That means that we have a divine quality, and we should treat other people the way we want to be treated.
The world is full of pain and suffering.
We read about it in the news, see it in our friends and family, and even feel it ourselves when we’re struggling with a difficult situation.
But what if there was a way to avoid this pain and suffering?
What if we could find peace and love within ourselves?
This is where being kind to ourselves comes in.
Being kind is the ability to find compassion for ourselves, others, and the world around us.
It’s a process of learning to let go of our hurt, anger, and sadness so that we can live in more harmony and peace.
And the best way to do this is by spending time in nature, surrounded by beautiful things.
When we’re in nature, we can get lost in the scenery and find our own peace.
This will help us feel connected to ourselves and learn how to be kind to others.
● 5 – Set your boundaries to conserve energy
When you’re setting boundaries, it’s useful to ask yourself three questions.
How much do I really need to get through this day?
How much sleep does my body need?
What does my spirit need?
A good way to begin is by looking at your daily schedule.
Before you make any commitments, ask yourself what you’re realistically able to accomplish and then schedule some downtime.
If you plan, for example, to go out with friends one evening and work into the wee hours the next morning on your latest project.
Then you are setting yourself up for failure, you’ll be exhausted and not very productive.
So take a look at your schedule and see if you can change things around so that you leave time for rest or relaxation.
Which is necessary for good health, so that you’re able to meet the demands of your day without wearing yourself out.
The other thing you need to remember is that boundaries are a means to an end.
They don’t exist in order to frustrate or stifle you; they exist so that your life will be better and more enjoyable.
So relax, feel confident about doing what’s best for you, and enjoy the freedom of living a balanced life!
● 6 – Stop giving away your energy to people
There are two types of people in the world, givers and takers.
Which one are you?
Takers will use your energy to get what they want, but they won’t give anything back to you.
If you keep giving them your energy, you’ll end up feeling drained and resentful.
If someone is using your emotional energy without giving anything back, it’s time to stop.
Do you have a friend who always wants things from you, but never seems to do anything for you?
Do they use guilt or anxiety to manipulate you into doing things for them?
Do they drain your energy by complaining about their problems and asking you for advice?
Are they always asking you to go out with them, but never offering to pay any of the expenses?
This is a classic sign of a taker.
When someone is using your emotional energy without giving anything back, it’s time to stop.
Ask yourself: “Is this person willing to reciprocate?”
If the answer is no, then it’s time for a heart-to-heart talk with them.
Tell them that their behavior is draining your emotional energy and that if they’re going to continue being in your life, they need to give something back
● 7 – Clean your physical and mental spaces.
There is a lot of wisdom in the old saying,
“A place for everything, and everything in its place.”
Tidy spaces help keep us mentally organized and physically healthy.
You may be surprised at how much better you sleep in a clean, uncluttered bedroom.
Conversely, living in an untidy space can have a negative impact on your health.
Tidying up isn’t just about appearances.
There are many physical and mental benefits to keeping your home clean and organized.
In addition to helping you get more done every day, here are some of the reasons why keeping a clean space can be good for your health.
It makes it easier to focus on the task at hand, your home is your personal sanctuary a place where you can relax.
Clutter not only takes away from that feeling of cleanness,
but it can also keep you from doing what you need to do because it’s hard to find what you’re looking for.
Whether it’s cleaning or fixing something around the house.
Getting lost in clutter can take hours away from other activities that are important to your health.
Like working out or spending time with friends and family.
● 8 – Use mindfulness to limit your exposure to negativity
The mind is a powerful tool that can be used to achieve incredible things.
However, it also has its limitations, and one of them is the fact that we can only focus on so many things at once.
In psychology, this is called attentional bias.
But what exactly does attentional bias mean?
Essentially, our brain has a limited amount of cognitive resources that it can use to process information.
And whenever you’re trying to focus on something, you’re taking up these limited resources.
This means there’s less cognitive firepower left to pay attention to everything else around you.
In other words, you are filtering out certain aspects of reality in order to make sense of your surroundings.
If you’re not careful about how you allocate your attention, then there’s a good chance that negative experiences.
Will come swooping in and steal your happiness from right under your nose.
In fact, according to research from Harvard, negative events have three times as much impact on our happiness than positive ones!
Intentionally practicing mindfulness and accepting negative experiences for what they are, i.e., neutral events with no inherent meaning.
We can limit the amount of time we spend dwelling on negativity in our daily lives.
This will allow us to spend more time focusing on the positive things
