We often hear that we are what we eat, but we’re also what we think. Like many things in life, negativity can become a habit. When you think negative thoughts, those thoughts affect your emotions. Your emotions, in turn, affect your behavior. If you are thinking negative thoughts a lot, most likely, you are dealing with negative emotions like sadness, depression, apathy, anxiety, fear, and more.
Admit it, we all complain. It’s too hot out, your coworkers are irritating you, the dog pooped on the carpet. Whatever unfortunate and frustrating events occurred in your life on any given day are often vocally and repetitively announced to anyone within earshot. While these illustrations are minor, there are some very legitimate reasons to complain. However, though it may make you feel better for a time, complaining about situations out of your control could lead to serious health issues such as a pattern of negativity, and an unhealthy mindset. Here are a few reasons to nip your complaining in the bud and how to have a more positive attitude.
