Feel better by avoiding daily toxins (Thinkstock)

This article was originally published on NewsOne on January 24, 2014.

How can you be as positive as possible in everyday life?

When we think of toxins, one of the first things that comes to mind is something we may accidentally digest or inhale something that isn’t fit for our bodies, such as cleaning products or dangerous gases.  While many of us try to stay away from those hazardous materials on a daily basis, there are three deadly toxins we come in contact with everyday that we don’t do enough to avoid – or at least try harder to keep under control.

Toxin 1: Gossip

An old saying goes, “a lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get it’s pants on.”  In today’s society, it’s very easy to buy into the “he said/she said” type of discussions without first figuring out if the issue even warrants your opinion. Gossip is a toxin that poisons relationships and a successful life. Stop spreading this toxin by going to the source.

Toxin 2: Negativity

Negativity is dangerous. Why?  Because when negativity takes hold, it doesn’t want to let go. Fight this deadly toxin by doing two things:

  • Think before you speak. If it’s not a positive comment or constructive criticism, then figure out if you even need to say it.
  • Be thankful for all that you have. Simply being more grateful puts you in a perspective to be more positive.

Toxin 3: Complaining/Criticism

Stop this far too familiar toxin by thinking about why you’re complaining in the first place, and then objectively deciding if complaining or criticizing will really help resolve a problem in an optimal way. Instead of complaining or criticizing, which can often lead to hurt feelings, a failure to succeed in goals, and increased negativity, try to figure out a more constructive way to solve whatever issue or problem you’re facing.
