Reserve your energy: Stop Complaining.

A half hour of complaining every day physically damages a person’s brain, according to research from Stanford University. 

“When you complain, you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation, change the situation, or accept it. All else is madness.” Eckhart Tolle

When faced with life problems or when things are not working out as planned, it is human nature to react negatively. In most instances, we tend to grumble and complain about our problems as if we are the only ones facing these problems. Without realizing it, we end up wasting so much of our time and energy yet, we have the power to change things or our attitude towards life, instead of complaining all the time.

Whether it is in your workplace, home, favorite restaurant, best bank, or so much more, often than not, you consciously or unconsciously complain a lot. Sadly, most of us have allowed this to be a daily habit. What most of us don’t understand is that, complaining makes you content fir a short period of time and it’s really time wasting and life draining. If you want to enjoy more happiness and peace of mind, try complaining less.



Just, don’t be like the howling dog, always howling and never doing anything about what’s bothering you. Stop complaining about your problems and work on them instead! Wondering how to do that?

Well, here’s the thing, when you stop complaining, you learn how to reserve your energy. To reserve as much energy as possible, learn how to change your attitude towards life and learn how to adapt to changes in your life. Doing so will not only make you more productive, but, will also motivate you to embrace positivity and good vibes only!

According to Steve Brunkhorst, a professional life success coach, motivational author, and the editor of Achieve! 60-Second Nuggets of Inspiration, you can reserve your energy by becoming resilient and always focusing on reserving your internal energy.

I for one stopped complaining when I realized that it was becoming a problem and a chronic habit. To fully break from this habit, I started doing the activities that I loved and enjoyed the most. I also focused more on maintaining my overall wellness. You can maintain your wellness by simply taking care of your inner and outer body.

Surround yourself with people that motivate you to be a better person. For example, instead of complaining about a work-related problem, learn ways in which you can convert the problem into positivity. Take responsibility for your life and actions. You will be surprised at how much that might change your life and help you reserve energy to do more rewarding things.

In a nutshell, you and I have so much to live more. By virtually being alive, we have the power to change that which does not resonate with us.
