Energy, both positive as well as negative, is literally everywhere. We pick on the energy from people, things and even the environment subconsciously. Positive energy can boost your health and well-being, while bad energy can impact your mood, mental health and even your life.

Sometimes you may feel very low and sad after meeting a friend, who shared with you about his illness or hardship in life. This is because you have picked up negative energy from him, as energy is contagious. What you think or feel may impact others around you. It's OK to be sad or feel low at times. That's natural, but when these negative emotions continue for a longer period and recur frequently, it means that you're storing up negative energy, which can harm your body and mind. When you are affected by negative energy, you may experience headaches, stomachaches, breathlessness, anxiety, depression, pain, restlessness, and confusion.

So, it is important to clear negative energy from your life and bring in positive energy to optimize your holistic well-being. Here are 7 ways to get rid of negative energy in your body and mind.
