There is a reason to stop whining – complaining can kill you! “Steeping yourself in negativity has seriously terrible consequences for your mental and physical health,” according to a post at Inc. by Jessica Stillman. I’ve been known on many occasions to limit the amount of time spent in my office on venting. When we get caught up in our old stories, we experience the exact same emotional chemicals as if the events were really happening. Neurons that fire together wire together. To make matters worse, this negativity can become addictive. Repeatedly thinking negative thoughts makes it easier to have more negative thoughts. And the more you think negative thoughts the more likely it is that you will have more random negative thoughts. The negativity becomes hardwired and becomes your personality.
My post on Sunday, Becoming the greatest expression of you was about this very issue. I will be posting on Sunday’s on how you can learn hypnosis and neuroplasticity techniques to rewire your brain – changing your thoughts, your emotions and your behaviors. Follow theses posts and find out how you can create your own happiness.
Complaining Is Terrible for You, According to Science
Inc., By Jessica Stillman
One, not only does expressing negativity tend not to make us feel better, it’s also catching, making listeners feel worse. “People don’t break wind in elevators more than they have to. Venting anger is…similar to emotional farting in a closed area. It sounds like a good idea, but it’s dead wrong,” psychologist Jeffrey Lohr, who has studied venting, memorably explained.
OK, so complaining is bad for your mood and the mood of your friends and colleagues, but that’s not all that’s wrong with frequent negativity. Apparently, it’s also bad for your brain and your health.
If you are living past thoughts, past experiences and past emotions of negative experiences, you are weakening your immune system, setting your self up for disease, perhaps even killing yourself. It doesn’t have to be that way – you can change that.
