When it comes to eating clean, I crowd out the bad shit to make room for the good.
When it comes to people, I crowd out the gloomy Eeyore’s to make room for the positive Penny’s.
And when it comes to social media, I crowd out the negative to make room for the motivational.
The older I get the more I choose to follow motivational, uplifting people on social media.
So instead of reading negativity on all of these social platforms, I’ve made a strong choice to follow/like/etc. positive role models, gurus, people and magazines. Basically I crowd out angry statuses ( or block them ) so I can focus on things like “Entrepreneur Magazine” or Ghandi quotes or whatever makes me happy.
This could be positive blogs, funny people on Snapchat, a dog’s Instagram page, entrepreneurs on Twitter, a rad charity on Facebook &/or motivational quotes ( << like the ones in this post).
The reason I do this is because I feel like social media is a part of my life so I might as well make it a pleasant experience every time I log on, right?
And the reason I’m telling you guys this is because I want to encourage you to really look at who you’re following/liking/etc. I mean think about it, if you’re on social media for even an hour a day throughout the day, that’s like 3% of each day, 21% of every week…AND about 7665 MINUTES a year.
Way too much to be looking through negative crap. No matter how much you want to stay positive, motivational, happy, etc., if you’re constantly scrolling down negative statuses, updates, etc., it gets exhausting…
Anyway, as you can see, over the past two weeks I’ve screenshotted some quotes ( see above & below ) that I’ve read while scrolling through my daily newsfeed to share with you guys. I see these types of quotes, articles, statuses, every time I log into social media & every time I log out. POSITIVE VIBES.
I swear they’ve made a difference in my personal, business, & overall mindset.
& if you think you’re not paying attention to the negativity on social media, I still encourage you to delete anything that’s not positive. Because maybe, just maybe your subconscious is paying attention.
REALLY, you’d be surprised how effective little changes like this can be in life in general.
It may sound stupid but it works wonders for me.
Even if it’s just social media, surrounding yourself with positive vibes is always the way to go, in my opinion.
OK SO, how do you crowd out the negative, toxic bullshit to make room for the motivational? AS ALWAYS, your tips are welcome!
