Understanding Why Turning Complaint Into Contentment Will Change Your Life

Howdy from Texas and welcome to the Turning Complaints into Contentment Challenge! Over the next 30 days, we'll be covering a great deal of information to help you kick complaining to the curb in order to reveal your more content self. This may seem like a tall order and even a bit overwhelming, but we will break this down into manageable pieces, I've got your back don't worry.

Each day, we'll examine a new aspect of ditching the complaints in favor of contentment. There are concrete steps you can take to banish complaining for good. It just takes a little practice and effort to break old habits.

Complaining can become just that – a habit.

When you learn to curb your complaints, you'll notice a shift in your life. Learning to lessen the frequency of your complaints doesn't mean that you'll never feel negative emotions again or that things won't ever upset you. However, making a concerted effort to stop complaining is about your overall mindset and the frequency with which you complain.

Changing your ways and adopting a new mindset won't happen overnight, but it's definitely worth the effort. Continual, habitual, complaining can become a cycle that's hard to stop. People will begin to form an impression of you based on your moaning and groaning. Unfortunately, that impression is usually a negative one.

There are tons of benefits to adopting a cheery disposition. In addition to leaving a better impression on others and improving your reputation, you'll simply feel better as you develop a more positive mindset.

People who complain often feel that they have no choices or that life is something that just happens to them. They don't feel in control of their circumstances. When you shift that mindset, you'll start to feel empowered and in charge. Taking a proactive approach to your life puts you in the driver's seat.

Ditching the complaining and trying to look on the bright side isn't just fluff.

It truly will bring good things to your world. You'll start to notice less anger and hostility, along with the host of negative emotions that go along with them. Everything won't seem to overwhelming and difficult. When you take on a more positive view by making real efforts to limit your bemoaning, optimism is a natural result.

You'll simply feel more content in every aspect of your life.

No, it won't be easy. However, if you join me over the next month, I am confident you'll see that change is possible. Let's dive in and begin to explore the ways you truly can turn complaints into contentment. See you tomorrow!

  • Hi Nona, it is a hard habit to break. Maybe this month with help with your medication. I think imbalances can greatly affect this tendency. Take care.

  • When I am walking around my neighbourhood this month, I will have to be careful not to trip over someone else’s complaints that they have kicked to the curb. Hopefully, the rain will wash them down the drain.
