New Delhi, July 19, 2017: Negative energy can take the form of a feeling or a thought that can make us feel that we can’t break free and we’re in a fix. When we say ‘soul’ is an energy then it can be said that the thoughts we create, be it positive or negative- has certain energy or life. One of the factors that contribute to negative energy is fear- this includes both conscious and unconscious fear. This article of health and healthy thoughts will guide you to learn how to identify it, when it makes an attempt to intrude your life and how to beat it by strengthening your thoughts.
One shouldn’t permit any of the following 6 negative energies to obstruct one’s life:
STRESS AND ANXIETY
A strong correlation exists between mental health and stress. If the negative energy of anxiety is allowed to control one’s life, it will hold them back from achieving various things in life. The most troublesome problem is the tendency to ignore anxiety symptoms and pushing them aside. It will only increase the negative energy present in your life in the long run. Most adults do have some amount of stress present in their life and this spreads negative energy even more.
Fortunately, there are ways to relieve such problems using relaxation exercice and techniques. It is hard to overcome stress, nervousness, and fear, but they can be worked upon with the help of a therapist who can teach us how to control of one’s emotions.
BAD MOODS AND DEPRESSION
Having depressive moods constantly has an adverse effect on your physical and mental well-being. Bad moods can actually intervene your ability to think in a clear manner. It is essential to face your emotions as it can help you identify when you are feeling depressed and comprehend how to control it. First and foremost, take out a couple of minutes for breathing and reflecting. Breathing exercises and meditation will calm your mind down and body and will stop you from burying down your feelings. Pinpoint the cause of negativity, and take an appropriate action.
People that do not make an effort to minimize the negative energy surrounding them suffer problems in maintaining lasting relationships. Socializing with other people may feel tiring when you are constantly in a bad mood. When you think you are being dominated by negative energy, take out some time for yourself. Additionally, you can also tell a trustworthy friend about what your problem is. Good and meaningful communication, as well as active listening, are some of the ways to get rid of it.
It has been told to us that complaining cannot solve the situation in any way. Despite this, most of the people complain constantly to tackle negative energy. Rather, it becomes a hurdle to overcome the situation and invites toxic energy. A person who complains about mostly everything will eventually push away their loved ones.
If you are angry and upset about a situation, minimize complaining, stop overthinking and focus on remaining positive.
These can be easily identified, as this occurs when you arrive at a certain place and you start to feel low, drained, irritated or tired. This can be due to negative vibes that you feel from this space, for instance, your work place, or your own house. When you find yourself in these negative spaces, close your eyes and take a deep breath. Identify what is causing the negativity in this space, and work to remove it.
There are various bodily reactions to negativity, such as lack of sleep, muscle pains, and headaches caused by tension. It might make you feel nervous, frustrated, or sad. Practicing relaxation techniques, doing something that you find enjoyable, and reducing stress will relieve you from this negative energy to some extent. Taking care of your body in a proper manner by exercising regularly and following a good diet will also help eliminate the negative energy get you in any physical manner.
CLEARING NEGATIVE ENERGY
It might not be easy to eliminate negative energy from your life. You can clear out negative energy by first taking responsibility for your feelings, and not blaming someone else.
Next, learn to replace negative thoughts with positive ones. This will take practice, efforts, dedication and requires you to make the choice that you want to minimize negative energy daily. Gain the courage to acknowledge that you create your life experience.
Nobody wants negative energy to pervade their lives, yet many of us permit it. Incorporating some changes within will enable us to quickly see positive changes in our lives.

What Is Bullying?
Bullying is a pattern of recurrent aggressive behavior in which one person (or a group of individuals) in a position of authority intentionally intimidate or abuse another individual to cause bodily or emotional harm to that other. Bullying may take place in either a physical or verbal manner. Bullied individuals, as well as those who bully others, may have long-term repercussions.
Bullying may occur anywhere, at any time, in person or online (cyberbullying), and can take many forms, including verbal, physical, and social. Bullies utilize their position of power — such as physical strength, knowledge of something embarrassing, or popularity — to exert control over or damage other people. Many people assume that bullying occurs solely during childhood; nevertheless, bullying does not necessarily stop after a person reaches the age of adulthood.
Bullies in adulthood can take the form of a threatening boss or colleague, a controlling partner, a relative, or any other type of person. Even in our personal and professional lives, we sometimes encounter adult bullies who can be harmful to our mental well-being.

How To Deal With An Adult Bully?
For obvious reasons, adult bullying can be a painful and challenging experience for anybody who finds themselves on the receiving end of such behavior. Knowing how to deal with the antics of a bully properly, on the other hand, may help you learn, develop, and feel better levels of confidence. When you find yourself in this scenario, one of the most crucial things to remember is that you must not exhibit the bully any signs of fear. This might be difficult, depending on the sort of bully you are dealing with, but bullies enjoy fear, encouraging them to continue with their terrible conduct.
Maintaining a sense of connection with other people while dealing with bullying is quite essential. Bullies usually see alone persons as easier targets since they have a smaller support network to challenge them.
Courage and a support network are significant advantages; but, reporting the bully is also an excellent line of action. Contrary to common opinion, just ignoring a bully does not always prompt them to cease their behavior. Adult bullies of all kinds often interpret being ignored as a sign of weakness, encouraging them to continue bullying. If someone is bullying you, don't be scared to speak out and report the individual.

Silver and gold have always been preferred when it comes to wearing jewellery. Right from the times of monarchy in India, wealth and riches have been associated with wearing gold and silver for the various properties they have. Copper is a metal that has always been worn by the poor. It is not a metal that carries a significant association with health or wealth, but wearing at least one article of copper is extremely beneficial for health.
Copper is a reddish-brown metal that cannot be worn on its own. It has to be worn in the form of an alloy to prevent a reaction. Copper oxidizes in air and forms a green layer on it when exposed, much like the Statue of Liberty. Usually, bangles, chains, or rings of copper always have brass and traces of silver in them which helps with stabilizing its reactivity.
Wearing copper with stones in it looks very aesthetic, but copper is not durable enough to hold the stones, which is why it is fashioned into elaborate designs and sold. Copper is very malleable, and over time, the bangle or ring will take the shape of the wearer's hand or finger.

Jewellery made out of copper can be an excellent health indicator. Copper helps metabolize bodily functions faster, and the wearer experiences relief from indigestion. It also soothes joint pain, headaches, and arthritis. Using copper utensils also aids those with deficiencies. Since copper is absorbed slowly into the body, there is no fear of causing any kind of imbalance.
Sometimes copper leaves a greenish tinge on the skin. This happens when it oxidizes with sweat. This stain can be washed away with soap and water, but the fact that it appears is noteworthy. It is an indicator of too much acidity in the body. Greenish skin appears when the wearer's diet includes too much meat or acidic foods.
Copper might not be a very attractive metal, but wearing it has a lot of benefits for the health. It regulates metabolism, assimilation, and indicates health. It is definitely a good idea to wear copper jewellery at least once in a while.

When popular smartphone brands like Xiaomi and realme entered the laptop market in India last year, they were expected to shake the existing giants, specifically under the Rs 50,000 category. However, chip shortage and supply crunch have somewhat dented their plans to make a significant mark to date. According to industry experts, the issue with smartphone makers entering the laptop category is two-fold. The first one is a massive supply crunch in the laptop component market and only big brands are able to get volume and supplies.
The other factor is that the traditional players are very strong in the consumer laptop market. Top 3 players control more than 70 per cent of the market and strong portfolio, distribution, and channel reach as well as brand marketing has helped them massively. "New brands can surely make a dent in the consumer laptop market but are challenged by supply issues right now. Watch out for them in 2022 as and when supply situation eases up," Navkendar Singh, Research Director, Client Devices & IPDS, IDC India told IANS.
Dominated by HP Inc, Lenovo and Dell, the traditional PC market (inclusive of desktops, notebooks, and workstations) in India continued to be robust as the shipments grew by 50.5 per cent year-over-year (YoY) in the second quarter (Q2), according to IDC. Notebook PCs continue to hold more than three-fourth share in the overall category and grew 49.9 per cent YoY in 2Q21, reporting a fourth consecutive quarter with over 2 million units. Desktops also indicated a recovery as shipments grew 52.3 per cent YoY after recording the lowest shipments of the decade in 2Q20.
According to Prabhu Ram, Head, Industry Intelligence Group, CMR, driven by the pandemic and the associated accelerated pivot to remote work, learn and unwind culture, PCs have been witnessing heightened demand. "Despite the current supply chain constraints, PCs are here to stay in the new never normal. In the run-up to the festive season, established PC market leaders will continue to leverage their brand salience and gain market share," Ram told IANS.

"On the other hand, there is a niche market for those new market entrants that are able to differentiate themselves from the competition in terms of features and value. "Alongside, they would need to back it with strong brand messaging to create awareness and recall amongst the target consumers," Ram added.
HP maintained its lead in the India PC market with a 33.6 per cent share as its shipments grew 54.2 per cent annually. Dell Technologies continued to hold the second position with a 22.1 per cent share and an impressive 86.1 per cent YoY growth in 2Q21. Lenovo maintained the third position with a share of 17.8 per cent in 2Q21.
Arvind Suraj, Research Fellow, Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), said that there is always a trust issue with new brands. "You won't buy a laptop in 6 or 7 months just like smartphones. In this case, we often go for existing players. Brands like Lenovo, HP, ASUS and Acer have already gained our trust," he said. (IANS/ MBI)
