We can only radiate positive energy when we are truly in a positive place of well-being. When we are centered, are naturally smiling, feeling well taken care of, giving back to our communities, and showing grace towards others we radiate positive energy.
“Love the moment, and the energy of the moment will spread beyond all boundaries.”
Center Yourself. We all have things that allow us to center and settle into ourselves. The ways we quiet the rest of the world, find a peaceful mind, and calm our bodies are the ways we center ourselves. Some of the methods could be meditation, journaling, prayer, reading inspirational or devotional materials, or creative expression. When we have centered ourselves we release into the world a positive and calming energy.
Smile. Just as you put on your clothes before going out, put on your smile. There is an energy and kindness that radiates from a smile. Even when we are talking to someone on the phone you can hear a smile or a scowl. Right? Put on your smile and watch the smile spread to others you interact with today.
Fill Your Cup. Positive energy is something we share with others, however, if we are only taking care of others and not taking exceptional care of ourselves we eventually feel drained and even drain the energy of others. Take exceptional care of you, especially if others count on you throughout the day.
Give Back. One of the best ways to recharge a smile is to volunteer and give back to society in a positive and needed way. Passing along your skills and talents to those who need you will result in a positive energy double whammy. An internal feeling and knowledge of being valued and the gratitude from others will boost the positive energy you radiate.
Show Grace towards Others. I choose to believe that we are all performing at the highest level we can at any given moment. Sure there are times we all fall short of our own standards and regrettably reveal our humanity, but when someone does this it is rarely our place to point out their short comings. It is our place to forgive them (for our own sake) and show them grace. We radiate a positive energy when we empathize with others and, if appropriate; gently remind them of the qualities we adore in them.
Today’s Simple Smile Igniter is to Radiate Positive Energy. There are days when we naturally radiate positive energy and have a positive impact on those we interact with and other days when we feel off and disconnected from those around us. Today consider the above 5 factors, which ones are thriving in your life and which ones are lacking? For the factors lacking make a plan to get them back on track and today take inspired action. As you read this, you felt something tugging at you. This is the inspiration that now just needs some action put towards it. If you felt a deep need to take time out for a bubble bath, you probably are feeling a need to fill your proverbial cup, take time out and give yourself a soak.
