Benefits of habit “Stop spending time with negative people”

✓ Reduces anxiety and stress
✓ Improves self-esteem
✓ Improves sense of optimism

First step:

Stop meeting 1 negative person


1. This week, say no to meeting 1 person you know is always negative about one thing or another – or everything for that matter.
2. Next week, do the same to 2 people.
3. Week by week, stop seeing all negative people in your life.

Helpful tips to make it a habit:

✓ Trigger your mind. This may sound brutal, but best way to trigger your mind to say no to meeting ANY negative people is to have a little comment about them in the call list of your phone. That way, whenever they’re trying to contact you, you will be reminded of your ultimate goal – staying positive.
✓ Let the app help. Every time you either fail to say no or have no choice, mark the even of meeting the negative person in the calendar of this app. You will see your progress best this way.
✓ Reward yourself. Once you’ve gone a full month of not meeting the negative people in your life, reward yourself by looking for and inviting positive people into your life instead. Now you have time for them – use it well!

Tips for beginners:

✓ People and energy. You may often feel drained after spending time with someone who’s constantly complaining, deriding you for the way you look or just generally is grumpy. Although we all have our days of negativity, constant bad attitude can be tiring. Remember that by spending time with such people, the worst off is you – they will feed on every ounce of positivity you have.
✓ Look after yourself. After you have eliminated as many negative people from your life as you can (sometimes relatives are not an option), watch out. When you look for someone new to establish relations with, make sure they’re not secretly cut from the same cloth.
✓ Optimism is not a sin. The worst thing that negative people do is bash you for your positive outlook. If you’re looking forward to some event, they will make sure to tell you it’s not going to be as glamorous as you think. If you get a new item, they will always tell you they’ve seen better quality/price/color/etc. REMEMBER: optimism is not a sin. Optimism is healthy and keeps you focused and productive. Don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise.
