We all recognize how much our environment plays a huge role on how much motivation we have everyday. Emotions are just as contagious as many viruses. Those who you work with and your home life greatly affect your daily routine. What and who is around you affect your mood as well as your actions. Now let me flip the script on you, are you motivating to others around you? Are you affecting their mood and actions? Don’t forget that you are a part of someone’s environment everyday. You have the ability to cheer someone up and pass on your positive mood. Watch how you interact with them and be careful about any negativity. Staying positive not only will help affect your mood, but also the mood of those around you. Choose your company wisely and be sure to identify any changes in mood that is a result of your environment. If we are able to identify these triggers we can help avoid spreading the emotional “virus” to others around us. You may be the only ray of sunshine in someones day.
