- INTENTIONALLY SEARCH FOR THINGS TO FEEL GOOD ABOUT.
Also called gratitude, the gift of recognizing the good things in your life is also key to refraining from the impulse to complain. It’s rather simple. When we are consciously aware of the blessings bestowed upon us, we’re less likely to focus attention onto the not-so-good things.
- DO THINGS THAT BRING YOU JOY.
We all require happiness in our lives. The lack of which often manifests into attitudes of bitterness and contempt. Of course, this often results in us finding fault wherever and whenever we can, justified or not. We must set aside time to do things that bring about feelings of joy.
- DO SOMETHING KIND FOR SOMEONE ELSE.
Mother Teresa once said: “Do not think that love in order to be genuine has to be extraordinary. What we need is love without getting tired. Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.”
Small acts of kindness go a long way. Not only for the recipient, but also for the benefactor. We find gratefulness in such actions which, of course, puts us in a state of mind that is less inclined to participate in criticism and other negative thought patterns.
- DON’T FORGET ABOUT NUTRITION. BRING WATER AND HEALTH SNACKS TO KEEP A POSITIVE MOOD.
Our physical health is intricately woven into our psychological health. When we’re eating right – hydrating, snacking healthily, and consuming nutritious foods – we’re positively impacting our state of mind. When our mind is in equilibrium with our body, we’re much less inclined to engage in counterproductive behavior such as complaining.
- ALLOCATE TIME TO RELAX AND REWIND
A tired mind and body is an underprepared mind and body. Similar to dietary habits, neglecting the need to rejuvenate mind and body leaves us susceptible to negative behavior. We must prioritize R&R.
Of all eleven things on this list, proper sleep is arguably the most important. Our brain will not (cannot) rejuvenate or reorganize. As such, we are unable to think rationally – a scientifically-proven fact. This goes without saying; If we are unable or unwilling to practice proper sleeping habits, our judgement is severely impaired. The impulse to complain is just one among many other byproducts of sleep deprivation.
