Protecting your energy is one of the most important self-care techniques you can use daily.
But what does this mean?
Controlling how you think and feel rather than allowing outside factors to control your ideas and emotions is how you protect your energy.
It means that regardless of what is happening in the outside world, you can build a beautiful inner world via your thinking, beliefs, and actions.
And it entails being genuine to yourself and not hiding or rejecting any aspect of yourself for anything or anyone.
Finally, it requires you to hold yourself accountable. For example, if you’re in a group gossiping about someone you know, you can either participate in the conversation or walk away.
In every situation, you can ask yourself, what action best serves my positive energy? These little things start the whole process of keeping just good vibes.
Benefits of Protecting Your Energy
There are numerous advantages to protecting your energy. It can help you in remaining balanced and engaged with yourself. It can also assist you in remaining calm and concentrating on your own inner voice. You can also use energy protection to keep yourself from receiving other people’s negative energy and emotions. You can shield yourself from harmful people or situations while yet maintaining your own health.
Steps to Protecting Your Energy
There are different steps you can take to have just good energy. Here are some of the most effective ones:
1. Social Media Breaks
It’s also easy to get caught up in the myth that likes and followers influence your worth (which is completely false).
Even if you just follow positive accounts, you may begin to believe that you are expected to be a cheerful, upbeat person all of the time, which is also untrue.
Regular social media breaks are required to safeguard your long-term vitality. As previously stated, I believe social media has many positive qualities, and in most circumstances, I do not believe it is necessary to eliminate it.
However, I do encourage integrating social media breaks into your day. Take unscheduled breaks when you feel like social media is draining your energy rather than restoring it.
And what if you have an account that makes you feel inferior to others or gives you bad or toxic energy?
Choose to design your social media feeds mindfully to benefit your mind, body, and soul.
2. Practice Self-Care
Self-care is critical for saving energy. This entails setting aside time for yourself to unwind and refresh. Make time for yourself to accomplish things that will nurture your soul. You can go for a long walk, meditate, or socialize with friends. Make time for self-care, whatever it may be. It is impossible to make objectives for oneself while practicing self-care. When setting goals, be sure they are consistent with your values and purpose.
Controlling your ego is another thing you can do.
Your ego is at work when you respond to harmful energy, worry about looking as nice as someone else, or try to “fix” someone’s perception of you. How much effort do you waste responding to bad influences and wasting it on things that don’t matter?
Be honest about how much you worry about that perfect Instagram life or how quickly you get caught in a gossip-fueled discussion. Pause before reacting. Don’t let your ego control your words or your energies. Consider whether this topic is even worth your time and effort. Most likely, it isn’t.
3. Take Breaks (Literally)
Taking pauses is also crucial for saving and protecting your energy. This entails taking pauses from demoralizing individuals and situations. This will assist you in recharging and protecting your energy.
Life is full of situations that might leave us overwhelmed, agitated, and reactive. These triggers might disrupt your peace of mind and every mood. Every emotion we experience is represented in our aura. Anger depletes and weakens our aura, but love and happiness increase it. This easy breathing method is beneficial because it instantly restores equilibrium to the mind, physique, and spiritual energy.
Simply seal your mouth and take slow, deep breaths through your nose. Allow your focus to flow in and out of your body with your breath. Try to be aware of how your chest rises and falls. Allow your shoulders to drop and your jaw to relax while concentrating on your breathing. Even five slow, deliberate breaths in and out of work can help!
When you feel like you’re surrounded by negative energy, visualization can be a powerful tool for replacing it with optimism, safety, and love.
While you may identify visualization exercises with meditation, you may practice visualization at any time.
Assume you’re at work, and the energy of your coworkers, employees, and/or customers is particularly bad today. The air around you is irritant, and that tension enters your mind, body, and soul. People are agitated and blame each other for their errors.
Take a step back from the outside world. Close your eyes for a moment. Assume a magnificent glow surrounds your entire body. This light could be white, gold, purple, or any other color you find appealing. See how that light shields your body from any negative external energy that tries to enter. Consider yourself traveling through your day, shielded at all times by this light.
5. Monitoring Your Paystubs
Finally, monitoring your paystubs is important for protecting your energy. This means being informed of where your money goes and ensuring it is consistent with your goals. Check your pay stubs and pay attention to how you spend your money. This will help you stay aligned with yourself and be in charge of your energy.
Protecting your energy is essential for sensitive people and empaths. It’s important to take care of your energy and maintain your well-being. Create boundaries, visualize, monitor your time and activities, practice self-care, take breaks, and pay attention to your emotions and energy levels to stay balanced and protect your energy.
Finally, pay attention to your paystubs and make sure to monitor where your money is going. Following these five tips can boost your energy and help you stay balanced.
