With the advent of the online world, it seems everyone has an opinion and a need to share it. The level of interaction gives way to drama, whining and complaining. You only need to look at the comments section of facebook pages for proof.

The negativity is toxic and far outweighs the positive. Too much sugar, not enough cheese, is the general response and that’s on the 30-second food videos! Have we lost our ability to improvise?

Try Viewing Things Differently

This quote attributed to Abraham Lincoln regarding rose bushes shows that a different viewpoint can be found in everything. You can complain about the thorns, or you can celebrate the roses.

A good change to make in your life is to stay away from those that feel a need to constantly comment on everything. Avoid these negative Nellie’s at all times. Only engage with people and content that has a positive effect on you.

Stop Stressing And Count Your Blessings

Marc and Angel have hit the nail on the head when they say that you need to stop focussing on how stressed or busy you are.

Try A No Complaints Week

Have you considered A No Complaints Week? Every time you complain, throw 20 cents in a jar or slap yourself on the wrist. You will be surprised how many times you catch yourself out. By practicing this method in a mindful way, you will be able to see exactly how much of a complainer you have become.

This infographic from Greatist has some excellent tips that you can enlist on a daily basis. Little changes add up over time. See the good not the evil and avoid idle gossip which leads to further negativity.
