Surround yourself with people who rarely complain

Instructions

  1. Reflect on whether you’re surrounded by complainers
    When you talk to family and friends, try to identify complaints and people who complain most frequently.
  2. Whenever somebody complains, change the conversation
    Introduce a new topic and say something positive about it, or take the complaints and put a positive spin on what is being said. 
  3. Always say only positive things about people in their absence
    Avoid saying negative things about people behind their backs. Whatever you say about somebody in their absence, you should be able to say in their presence. 
  4. Surround yourself with people who foster healthy relationships devoid of complaining
    They will have a more positive impact on your well-being because they will focus on more than negativity.
