I have just read a book with this title by Will Bowen. His church group decided to encourage people to complain less by wearing a wrist band and changing wrists whenever they complained. The idea being to become more aware of complaining and reduce the frequency. The goal being to keep the band on the same wrist for twenty one days until a habit sets in.
So far the church has distributed six million wrist bands around the world. Try it yourself. Use a wrist band, a ring, changing an object from one pocket to another. Every time you hear yourself complaining or criticising… make the change.
Sometimes complaining is legitimate but the world will still exist if you don’t complain for twenty one days. We all know how wearing it is to be with someone who constantly complains… the weather, politics, the economy etc, etc.
Give yourself a gift of not complaining. You will feel much better. You will be better to be with. You will learn to focus on what is working and enjoyable instead of what is not working and causing you grief.
Try it for one day. Then two. Then twenty one.
