There’s no overstating the need to keep your vibe high. As Einstein put it, “Everything in life is vibration.”
Change your vibration on the inside and you will attract what you want on the outside. When you elevate your vibe everything that is out of alignment will leave your life.
How do you do it?
Stop playing the same old heavy song. Take responsibility for your energy. Create harmony with and within yourself. And start singing a new tune.
The last year has made keeping your vibe high challenging. The fatigue of what you’ve been through may be hitting you hard. Honor your body’s needs, and the needs of your energy field. You’ve changed and grown. As spring approaches and the world starts to open up, making the shift will enable you to step into a new way of being.
Here are 11 things you can do today to raise your vibe.
1. Eat high vibe foods
Whole Food Plant Based is the one diet that does it all. Not only will this diet elevate your energetic vibration it also will reduce your risk of cancer, heart disease, and arthritis. This anti aging diet can also help reduce anxiety the most common mental illness in the United States.
Adding more fruits and veggies to your day and it’s easier than you think. Have a smoothie for breakfast, a salad for lunch, and a plant based burger (Impossible Burgers and Beyond Burger are great) for dinner. Instead of chips or cookies for snacks have veggies and hummus or cut up apples with a tablespoons of peanut butter.
2. Use essential oils
Diffuse or apply topically. Some of my favorites are rose, lavender, and peppermint.
3. Think positively
Shed the heavy thoughts. Replace them with lighter, brighter ones. Doing this on a regular basis will increase the number of positive emotions over negative ones. According to psychologist Barbara Fredrickson’s Broaden-and-Build Theory of Positive Emotions, more positive emotions will create an upward spiral that will spark more joy and the urge to play and explore.
4. Hang out with high vibe people
Ditch those Eeyores and find yourself a Tigger or two. Yes, it can be hard to let go of people you are close to, especially at midlife when we have so many tight connections, but trust me the Universe abhors a vacuum and new, positive people will show up.
You are 60% water so make sure to drink at least ½ your body weight in ounces of water daily. For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, drink at least 75 ounces of water.
6. Move your body
Walk, run, dance, stretch, swim… just do it. Exercise is nature’s Prozac. It generates mood boosting chemicals and can also help you lose or maintain your weight.
7. Savor the good
When something great happens pause and take it in. Recalling a powerful memory is also another way to savor the good.
8. Spend time in nature
Research shows this will boost your mood and immune system.
