I strongly believe that being in a bad mood and bad vibes are somehow contagious. 
This is one of the reasons why I prefer to spend my time with people who are often in a good mood and who can stay positive and motivated even in bad situations. Negative people can somehow be toxic, for themselves and for their environment.

You don't believe me? Ok, let me try to explain better what I mean with an example about being negative.
What do you do when you are sad or angry or frustrated, if you are being negative?

Most of times you keep thinking about how sad or angry or frustrated you are. And you talk to people to say how sad or angry or frustrated you are. And then you recall other situations that made you sad or angry or frustrated in the past. You complain about the situations, about you, about other people. 
Someone or something has to be guilty! Finding the guilty one slowly becomes the most important thing. Meanwhile every minute you become even more sad or angry or frustrated.

Your bad feelings are in the air, floating somewhere between you and people around you, like the proverbial little black cloud of negativeness.
Does this "black" negative energy make you feel better? Does it improve your life? Does it change the situation or solve your problems? Does it bring joy or happiness to people around you?

I bet it don´t.

Would you like to try a little game?
Starting immediately, you can think and say something negative, if you want, anytime you want. But you have to think and say something positive first. Deal?

Try the game for a week and let me know your thoughts in the comments!

Ich bin voller Ãœberzeugung, dass schlechte Laune und negative Ausstrahlung auf irgendeine Art ansteckend sind.
Das ist einer der Gründe weswegen ich lieber meine Zeit zusammen mit Leuten verbringe, die oft gut gelaunt sind und die auch in schwierigen Situationen positiv und motiviert bleiben können. Leute, die eine negative Einstellung haben, können verhältnismäßig giftig, für sich selbst und für ihren Umgebung, sein.

Glaubt Ihr mir nicht so ganz? Ok, ich versuche diese negative Einstellung mit einem Beispiel besser zu erklären.
Was macht Ihr, wenn Ihr entweder traurig oder zornig oder frustriert seid, wenn Ihr schlecht drauf seid?

In den meisten Fällen denkt Ihr weiter daran, wie traurig, zornig oder frustriert Ihr seid. Und Ihr redet mit anderen Leuten darüber, um ihnen mitzuteilen, wie traurig, zornig oder frustriert Ihr seid. Dann ruft Ihr Euch wieder andere Situationen ins Bewusstsein zurück, die Euch traurig, zornig oder frustriert gemacht haben. Ihr klagt über die Situationen, über Euch selbst oder über andere Leute. Jemand oder etwas muss schuld sein! Das Herausfinden, wer die Schuld hat, wird langsam das Wichtigste. Mittlerweile seid Ihr jede Minute trauriger, zorniger oder frustrierter.

Eure schlechten Gefühle liegen in der Luft, irgendwo schwebend zwischen Euch und den Leuten neben Euch, wie die sprichwörtlich gewordene kleine schwarze Wolke der schlechten Laune.
Geht es Euch durch diese "schwarze" negative Energie besser? Macht sie Euer Leben besser? Ändert sie die Situation oder löst sie Eure Probleme? Bringt sie Freude oder Glück den Leuten Euch gegenüber?

Ich bezweifle es.

Habt Ihr Lust auf ein Spielchen?
Ab jetzt dürft Ihr etwas Negatives denken und sagen, wann Ihr wollt, jederzeit wenn Euch danach ist. Ihr musst aber erst etwas Positives denken und sagen. Alles klar?

Spielt bitte das Spiel eine Woche lang und lass mich Eure Meinung in den Kommentaren wissen!

Sono fermamente convinta che essere di cattivo umore e avere pensieri negativi sia in qualche modo contagioso.
Si tratta di una delle ragioni per cui preferisco trascorrere il mio tempo con persone che sono spesso di buonumore e che sono in grado di rimanere positive e motivate anche in situazioni difficili. Le persone negative possono rivelarsi "inquinanti", per se stesse e per chi sta loro intorno.

Non mi credete? Ok, provo a chiarire meglio quello che intendo dire con un esempio sull'essere negativi.
Cosa fate quando siete tristi, arrabbiati o frustrati, se state vedendo tutto nero?

Nella maggior parte dei casi continuate a pensare a quanto siete tristi o arrabbiati o frustrati. Parlate con le persone di quanto siete tristi o arrabbiati o frustrati. E cominciate a richiamare alla mente altre situazioni che vi hanno reso tristi o arrabbiati o frustrati. Vi lamentate delle situazioni, di voi stessi, di altre persone. 
Qualcuno o qualcosa dev'essere il colpevole! Trovare il colpevole diventa così la cosa più importante. E nel frattempo diventate ogni minuto più tristi o arrabbiati o frustrati.

I vostri pensieri negativi sono nell'aria, aleggiano indistinti tra voi e le persone che vi circondano, come la proverbiale nuvoletta nera della negatività.
Questa energia "dark" e negativa vi fa stare meglio? Rende la vostra vita migliore? Aiuta a cambiare le cose o risolve i vostri problemi? Regala gioia o felicità alle persone che vi sono vicine?

Scommetto che la risposta è no.

Che ne dite di un nuovo gioco?
A partire da questo momento potete pensare e dire qualcosa di negativo, se vi va, ogni volta che ne avete voglia. Ma prima di farlo dovete pensare e dire qualcosa di positivo. Affare fatto?

Provate il giochino per una settimana e fatemi sapere nei commenti cosa ne pensate!
