According to the NHS (1), one in three people who experience severe trauma will develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). PTSD can occur after one or continuing traumatic events. Events do not need to involve physical harm to be traumatic.
This type of bad energy can be the result of someone’s nasty comments or simply disapproval of everything around them. You’ll meet people who portray positive vibes, but unfortunately, you’ll also come across those who are negative all around. The latter group of people doesn’t care how many people they are upset with their behavior.
So, how do you prevent bad energy? There are a few different ways to keep these bad vibes from impacting your well-being:
Avoid Negative People

Strive for a Positive Environment

Improve Your Responses to Negative Energy
If you can’t change the negativity of people and the environment around you, work on how you respond to these negative vibes. Pursue each day with a positive attitude and know that you are responsible for your inner calm and overall happiness.
Repair or remove broken things from your home.
