What Wins in Your Life: Fear or Fabulous?

I have been reading and analyzing a fair amount of research on the impact of various things on the brain. The two big ones are: appreciation (gratitude and growth) and complaint (that often stems from fear).

The findings are both provocative and useful. First, one bit of news is that complaining is NOT good. Cognitive functioning actually goes down. Yikes. We certainly don’t want that.

On the other hand, appreciation stimulates the brain in ways that encourages us to do more of the good stuff and feel great in the process.

Bottom Line: forget complaint and feel fabulous.

Enjoy your weekend,
Anita
