Releasing Negativity

How do you release negativity so it doesn't reflect back on your reality?


The main thing is to know that what you are releasing the negative feeling, and not reacting or retaliating with negativity to some incident. That is typically how negativity gets perpetuated. If you have some feeling of negativity, such as fear or anger, instead of forming words and actions from that feeling and directing it at someone, take a moment and acknowledge what you are feeling to yourself. Then take 3 full deep breaths where you feel the tension and stress in your body and mind release. If you have a private space, you can make an audible tone to accompany your exhalation that facilitates the expression of your feeling. Some people find that writing out their feelings is an effective way to safely release negative feelings. It can also be helpful to go for a walk in nature or workout in the gym or dance. All of these are good ways to clear charged feelings without hurting anyone or continuing the cycle of hurt.

On the subject of releasing negativity, I am very interested in using your product Endorphinate but would first like to understand why you include, in two versions of the three, a form of b12 called\ncyanocobalamin instead of the methyl version. I would rather consume the latter. Might you reconsider adjusting the ingredients? Please review this critique of the various forms of b12: \n\n\nThank you.

Writing helps, yes. But how do u actually let it go? Taking a deep breath, going for a walk, finding a place where you can be alone, etc., are ways of holing back, stuffing it in, repressing how u really feel only for it to haunt you later in life. If it is not released, it stores itself inside the body and can manifest itself as physical pain later on. How can u release it by ignoring it?

I actually write it out in poetry form_ whatever feelings I have, joy or sorrow _anger or pain, be it even love. I find writing it down, eases and releases cooped up feelings. Its a gateway ,most effective.
