Energies Are Contagious: Be Mindful Who You Flock With

energies are contagious

You've probably scrolled past numerous quotes on Instagram telling you to protect your energy, and that energies are contagious. But what does it all really mean? If you've ever cut a toxic person out of your life, you'll likely already resonate with these sayings more than most. Your vibe attracts your tribe and vice versa. I encircle myself with an unbelievable group of friends because they support me and inspire me to live my best life.

Energies Are Contagious: Be Mindful Who You Flock With

Negative, toxic people are the thieves of joy. They infiltrate your life and affect all of the blessings and opportunities that the universe sends your way. If they moan about everything and have a negative outlook on every aspect of life, that habit will start rubbing off on you when you spend time around them. Negative people are draining. They literally suck the life out of you. They're the people who subtly tell you in their own manipulative ways that you're not good enough to get where you want to go. It could even be one of your closest 'friends' who is so insecure that they tell you the dress that shows all of your flaws looks better on you than the one you know accentuates your fabulous curves. You don't need people like that around you. No matter how much you may love them, love them from afar and save yourself!

If you have people in your life you've started suspecting are toxic, try this exercise. Distance yourself from this person (or persons) over a week or two. Evaluate how you feel when you're not around them. If you feel happier, more energized and more positive, it's time to cut the cord.

Surround yourself with people who elevate you, cheer you on and make you excited about life. After only a day around people who inspire you, you'll realize just how contagious energies are. Be mindful who you flock with!
