    By nature I'm an optimist. But when negativity rears its head I find the best thing is to get moving. Playing some fierce rock or jazz or kirtan that I can shake my body to will give negativity the boot. Or I drive down to the beach and inhale the ocean air. Filling every cell in my body with that energy recharges me completely. The best preventive for negativity is doing at least a few yoga postures every day (if I'm not taking regular classes) and meditation.
