Stop complaining or associating with whiners, it’s bad for your health

Nothing unites people more strongly than a common dislike. The easiest way to build friendship and communicate is through something negative, says Trevor Blake, author of Three Simple Steps.

This would resonate with a lot of Zimbabweans who are constantly complaining or whining about one thing or another. After all, according to an article in Fast Company, “..sometimes we absolutely need to vent. It feels good, doesn’t it? One study showed that bottling emotions could shorten your life by an average of two years.”

But the magazine adds that whining comes with a cost. “When we complain, our brains release stress hormones that harm neural connections in areas used for problem solving and other cognitive functions. This also happens when we listen to someone else moan and groan.”
