There are days in your life where you’ll find yourself unhappy and somewhat feeling empty. You’ll see yourself sailing alone in the middle of the sea, or find yourself helpless in the dark, wanted to scream but surprisingly, you just can’t. These are possible because you’re being fed up with negativities and you can’t handle everything anymore. Do you know there are simple ways you can completely eliminate negativity from your life?

We bring you thirteen lesser-known methods to your rescue. Well, you better figure out each of that one by one as you go through reading this article.


1. Tidy up! Tidy up!

Like how you let go of pieces of stuff that remind you of bad memories, you must also learn to let go of the bad memories itself and the people involved in it. In that way, you’re tidying up your mind and conscience from unpleasant memories. This will eventually result in a more peaceful and better mental state – no negativities included just serenity.


2. Put down everything you do and go on a road trip

You can kick-start your journey to a better life by simply going on a road trip. A simple road trip can refresh your mind and give you the space that you probably need.

Turn your back from responsibilities and the city life for the meantime so to have ample time for yourself. And you’ll see, you’ll get better and feel lighter.


3. Formulate a new set of goals

You’re advised to formulate a new set of goals for you to follow through. This is to overcome negativity with the courage to reach your goals.  

Reaching your goals builds up self-confidence and trust. The more you have a goal to focus on, the more opportunity you can take off the thought of all the negativities in your mind.  


4. Identify what doesn’t make you happy and learn to say no

Saying no to things, people, or even a habit that doesn’t deliver happiness on your table is just right. You don’t have to feel bad or sorry for rejecting a person from coming back in your life or saying no to an offer which you aren’t comfortable. It’s your life, it’s your choice, and saying no can help prevent negativity from coming into your life.


5. Accept failures and pick up new lessons

Often times, failures or rejections are two of the major reasons why people think that life is over. It’s obviously not easy but by looking at a brighter context, you’ll realise that every failure comes with life-changing lessons.

So, when you stumbled down, learn to find the lesson in that part of your life, pick it up and bring it with you as you stand up and move forward once more.


6. Look forward to a better and brighter tomorrow

As you go through your downtimes, always overcome it by looking forward to a better and brighter tomorrow. This is to give you hope that the world is still evolving and the game isn’t over yet.

If you’ve had a bad day today, then breathe out the stress and think of the better days coming. You don’t have to put an end to a sentence that only needs a comma in it, right? Well, apply that in your life.


7. Strive to be authentic

Authenticity seems to be a trophy or a reward nowadays. Whereas, people must know that authenticity is one of the cures to healing oneself from negativity. Free yourself and choose anything and anyone that truly inspires and satisfies you.


8. See the beauty of everything you have in life

Life can either be in a calm or a storm part of the sea. And that means that life is unpredictable and forever will be. As a maturing and growing person, you must educate yourself to see the beauty of everything and anyone in your life.


9. Stretch and lay your hands for those who need help

Helping others brings a lot of magic in the world. You might know how sorrowful it gets when you’re on the situation of needing someone’s help. So, if you happen to see someone who needs a helping hand, you better not think twice of providing and doing whatever you can do to help.


10. Treat yourself in a once in a lifetime trip

A once in a lifetime trip can be luxury escapes from reality. Never disregard spending money for your own happiness. Go abroad or go out-of-town and experience the feeling of being free as a bird.

Giving yourself a luxury escape can give you more time to meditate and to move on from such unpleasant situations. You can re-earn your money but never the memories.


11. Practice some social media detox

Social media is truly a tremendous trend right now. It’s slowly becoming part of people’s lifestyle which in a deeper thought isn’t healthy.

Social media can be the source or reason for a great amount of insecurity and envy. So, the best thing you can do is to learn to practice some social media detox.


12. Don’t get stuck in the same emotion

Life can bombard you with too many emotional breakdowns and that’s very disgusting, of course. But you know, you don’t have to get stuck in the same emotion especially the negative ones. Uplift your mood and spirit and walk away from it. Move on and focus on bettering yourself and your life instead.


13. Never let negative people in

Often times, negative people are the reasons for your sadness and stress. Well, shut your door before them and never ever let them in again. Like what has been said in the earlier key point, learn to say no. This kind of people isn’t healthy for your general well-being and that’s more important than anything else.

Truly, negativity is just all around the corner – waiting for its next target. Luckily, you’ve allocated some time reading this article.

Now, you’re armed enough to face and shield yourself from the attack of these negativities roaming around. If you’ve survived a downtime moment in your life, don’t hesitate to inspire people by sharing your story with us.
