How to Stop Complaining
Complaining. Sure it may feel better in the moment, like you’re letting out some steam, but it actually does more harm than good. In fact, a study by Stanford University found that complaining may be more dangerous than you think. Their research showed that complaining shrinks your hippocampus, reducing your memory and problem-solving abilities.
It also increases stress hormones that can cause you to gain weight and raise your risk for serious conditions, including diabetes and heart disease.
