Episode #3 – Combatting Negativity


Episode #3 – Combatting Negativity

In this third episode of Spreading The Good Stuff we talk about where negativity exists, how the human brain has a negativity bias, and how we can all attempt to combat it.

We also take a good hard look at gossip, and how we can ALL get caught up, reasons why and our own personal experiences on how we deal with it, while maintaining our own integrity and positivity.

Finally, we share how we approach each and every day to ensure we are best placed to combat negativity, including tools that have worked well for us along the way.

A quick note here: it’s a work in progress for all of us!

A take away from this episode is to challenge yourself to better recognise negativity in your own life and become more aware that you DO have options.

Finally, we share some personal tips on how to remain positive, in an increasingly negative world, and remind ourselves to focus on the good!

We hope you enjoy this episode and would love to hear your thoughts via our Facebook or Instagram pages, as well as any suggestions for future episode topics.
