Things that make you upset or angry bring negative energy into your life. If you're trying to expel negative energy, consider how the following triggers affect you.
Social Media Is Isolating
Social media was supposed to bring us closer to our friends and family. However, people who use social media actually seem to feel lonelier and more depressed. Psychologists from the University of Leuven in Belgium and the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor studied Facebook use and life satisfaction. Over a two-week span, they found that the more people used Facebook, the lower their levels of life satisfaction were. They theorized that because most people only post accomplishments on Facebook, this leads people to the false conclusion that everyone else has a wonderful life except them.
Too Much or Too Little Sleep Can Lead to Depression
While everyone knows it's difficult to work on too little sleep, Japanese researchers have found that people who slept more than eight hours or less than six hours were actually more likely to suffer from depression. A regular bedtime and wake time, a calm bedroom atmosphere, and no electronic use before bed can help promote good sleep. If you find that worries are keeping you up at night, chat with a psychic online to see if he or she can help you pinpoint the source of your anxiety.
A Poor Diet May Harm Mental Health
While a diet high in fat has negative effects on your physical health, researchers in Australia have also linked a poor diet to feelings of apathy. In a study of 7,114 adolescents, researchers found a correlation between symptoms of depression and the low-quality foods consumed by participants. To help ward off this negative energy and keep your body feeling physically well, stick to fresh fruits, vegetables, fiber, and water.
Anger Damages Your Heart
If you find yourself getting angry easily, you have a higher risk of heart disease. When we get angry, our brains release the stress hormone adrenaline. While an occasional flood of adrenaline is fine, excessive amounts will produce a fatty plaque build up in our arteries called atherosclerosis. In turn, this can lead to heart disease. One study of 12,986 people found that those who experience the highest levels of anger had three times the risk of heart attack and twice the risk of coronary heart disease.
Life Transitions Affect Everyone
Any major upheaval in our lives, such as the death of a loved one or the loss of a job, can exacerbate feelings of anger and depression. While we have no control over these transitions, we can choose how we respond to them. Leaning on friends and family for support and allowing yourself time to grieve can help you cope. Also, if you're having trouble deciding your next path, a clairvoyant reader can show you which direction to take in your life.
By removing these triggers from your life, you can avoid the negative energy they bring with them and be happier.
