Complain Less, Improve Cognition

Teacher Insights

New research reveals that keeping yourself away from complaining and disassociating from people who engage in negative conversations will improve your cognitive abilities.

More than 1000 people were involved in Complaint Restraint Project with the objective of eliminating negative statements and leading a positive life. The researchers said that our brains release stress hormones when we engage in complaining. This engages part of the brain that is involved in problem solving and cognition. There are ways to overcome this problem- it starts with awareness, turning complaints into solutions and keeping away from people who keep on complaining.

Most often it is not the problem at hand that matters but our attitudes. Frequent complaining takes away time that can be devoted for thinking and productive activity.
