New Year’s Resolution Life Hack

If you want a hack for New Year’s, put “no complaining” on your list.


Because it’s difficult to avoid hearing (and saying) complaints. When a complaint appears, you can use it as a reminder of your goals.

Because complaining means you’re not working to solve the problem. Take action instead.

Because complaining is self-focused. Seek a conversation of connection instead.

Because complaining reveals that you’re upset with reality. Pause and remind yourself to come back to the present.

Because the antidote to complaining is gratitude. Each gripe can be a reminder to look for what’s good, what’s working.

Because complaining raises our stress hormones. Take some deep breaths.


It’s an easy hack. There’s only one thing to remember: No Complaints.
