No Whining Wednesday!

Oh, try as I might, declare what I believe — the creeping whine sometimes lunges from my throat and I realize I am in complaint.

I’m learning to self-stop. Whining is debilitating and crack the line in above-the-line health. It puts a stop to the positive functioning of the cells just because the energy for pro-activity is no longer there.

These statements are proven by science. We know that holding your body in a power position and reciting affirming statements invests a stream of endorphins and serotonin into the blood stream that goes straight to the brain. Harvard U. said so.

Whining is also a no-no because it drags others into your downward spiral. Maybe this is why it’s said that you should share your deepest complaints with a trusted counselor or therapist.

Not everyone is ready to go down into the pits with you, or has the ability to give you the kind of support you need to see life from a brighter angle.

“Laughter gives us distance. It allows us to step back from an event, deal with it and then move on.” –Bob Newhart


She continues, “Laughter is everything and I believe that if you are too serious to laugh then you are too serious and your life is probably real boring. The next time you find yourself in a sour mood, try to find the humor in the situation.

“Of course, depending on the situation this will be harder for some than for others but if you concentrate on the positive then you will find it. It may take awhile, but you will find it.

“I’m at a point in my life where I’ve come to appreciate positive affirmations and the high vibrations the universe puts out when we focus on the good instead of the negative. According to an article in Laughter is the Best Medicine, laughing really is good for your health….”
