People who complain a lot are bad for your health – study

DUBAI: We always come across constant complainers in the work place. But did you know that even just half-an-hour of complaining a day physically damages a person’s brain, be it the complainant or the listener?

This according to a recent report from Fast Company, an American business company, citing study from Stanford University.

The report also cited Dr. Guy Winch, and author of “The Squeaky Wheel,” which is about complaining the right way to get results, as saying that, in most cases, people have “lost a sense of what they are complaining about; instead, (they) use it as an exercise for venting and that has consequences.”

One such consequence, he said, is that venting floods the bloodstream with cortisol, the stress hormone.

There’s a lot more reasons to stay away from people griping a lot, said Jon Gordon, author of the 2008 book, “The No Complaining Rule,” which is about positive ways to deal with negativity at work.

“Negativity in the workplace costs businesses billions of dollars and impacts the morale, productivity and health of individuals and teams,” he said.

He also likened being next to someone who complains most of the time to exposure to secondhand smoke – toxic!
