In a positive environment we thrive. In a negative environment we struggle. Usually, there’s a mix of positive and negative influences in our surroundings. Ideally, we’d do well to expand, imitate, and eventually embody the positive influences and ignore, avoid, and eliminate the negative influences. But we can’t do this effectively unless we selectively filter our environment to let in what serves us and block out what disturbs us.
Consider the places, spaces, and company you spend your time among: which aspects are most beneficial and which are a bother? After you identify these key influences, use your creativity and resourcefulness to create the ideal environment for your purposes out of whatever situation you find yourself in.
Your environmental filter will accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative in your surroundings. You can minimize whatever negative influences manage to get through by consciously focusing your attention elsewhere. The result will be that you find yourself more often than not in surroundings that support your health and happiness.
