No Complaining This February

Complaint Restraint

My husband told me about this no complaints movement that Pieter Pelgrims and Thierry Blanpain have started.
You see, they came up with the brilliant idea of doing Complaint Restraint during the whole month of February and I absolutely love the idea.

I’m all for making positive changes to my lifestyle that will benefit me and the ones around me, so I’ve wholeheartedly signed up for the challenge. And you can do the same here. Will you join me?

 What we want to get rid of in February is venting about things we can’t change. Like the missed bus, the rainy weekend, the crying baby next door.
Simply stop complaining. Be mindful and notice when it happens. We’ll help you by sending you a few emails throughout the month with reminders and some tips.

I know we’re already 3 days into February, so if you take the pledge now, it will only be for 25 days… Let’s stay positive peeps.

    1. My pleasure! I’m guilty as I usually complain about stupid things when in fact I’m only bringing stress into my life for nothing. I’m going to try and be more mindful about complaining this month x

  1. I love it. I’m all for less complaining and I pledge to….well, try 😉

    I think we get too used to complaining as a conversation starter (eg: ugh, this weather) wheras we could be spreading good energy by using positive comments to connect.

    1. I totally agree with you. I’m the world’s grumpiest person (especially in the mornings!), I really need to start thinking differently and stop complaining about pointless stuff x

  2. This is such a great idea! I feel like it’s often the little things that we don’t even think about – and really don’t even matter – that we also spend the most time complaining to each other about. I think this is also really positive because when you’re getting together to friends, it forces the conversation to more positive things. I mean, maybe it’s just me, but isn’t it just the easiest thing in the world to get together with good friends and bitch about anything and everything? In some ways I think that’s the sign of a good friendship, but I also think it shouldn’t be the focus of anything.

  3. I absolutely love this idea! I really try to not complain, but find that sometimes I am doing it all day without really noticing. Often complaining is a way to ‘bond’ with people, which I would like to change. Here’s to the anti-complaining movement!

    1. I also have days like that, especially during PMS… Worst part is I don’t even notice I’m being a pain in the ass, unfortunately it comes so naturally to me on those days! x

  4. this is such a great idea!! hmm i’ll really have to figure out how i would be able to make this work though for me.. i would have to keep my mouth shut 24/7. hahaha bc I really love to complain. but i know it’s something i’ve been wanting to work on too!
