The news is on in the background: four commentators are ranting and arguing and you’re getting edgy. Your social media page is laced with opinions and debates and political talk—the talk these days feels more like hate slinging. Your desk is a mess with piles of papers and it’s overwhelming and exhausting just looking at it.
Viral energy is all around you. The atmosphere can feel heavy with tension, anxiety and grief, because it is.
You might have picked it up while watching the women fight with each other on The Real Housewives; from the chaotic noise of horns blasting while stuck in traffic; from the frantic tone of a friend who’s having relationship trouble and called to regurgitate the whole thing on you.
No matter how you experienced the viral energy, simply by being mindful of these toxins all around you, you can make choices to limit your exposure and protect your good energy.
