Ever noticed how easy it is to catch other people’s negative emotions? If you want to protect yourself from an emotional contagion, try this:
– When someone is being negative, change the subject. Or if you can, walk away or minimise your interactions with them.
– Emotionally detach yourself from other people’s negative emotions and release any negativity you’ve absorbed.
– Strengthen your emotional resilience by doing things that boost your positivity. Then, you can start a positive emotional contagion.
