I thought this was really interesting - there is some Reverend in Kansas City, MO that came up with the idea of creating a bracelet imprinted with "A complaint free world.org". The purpose of said bracelet is to help people break the habit of complaining. "What" That sounds like a pain in the you complain. Well, clearly you need a complaint bracelet.
The protocol is this - you wear your purple complaint bracelet and when you or someone around you catches you placing a complaint - "Man. I don't have anything to wear. Man. It's too hot in here. Man. I'm really bored" - you switch the bracelet to the other wrist. You wear the bracelet for 21 days (the amount of time psychologists, Scientists, People,) say that it takes for you to break a habit. By the end of the 21 days, you are so used to censoring yourself on the complain factor that you are cured!
Enlisting someone else to work with on your journey is genius because not only is it more fun to try and bust someone else on the thing you have a problem with as well, you have moral support if you start to feel bad about yourself cause you didn't know you were such a darn complainer.
I think this is a brilliant concept. Plus, let's just say you wanted to work on some other habit you have like drinking too much or eating too much or putting off things you should do to improve your health - this method can be used to break any old habit. On top of that, you don't need to buy that bracelet to get the party started. You can just wrap any old thing around your wrist and off you go.
For example, say you have a problem with guilt. And you feel guilty that you're too cheap to buy a "Complaint free world.org" bracelet when they only cost a buck. So, you catch yourself feeling guilty for ripping off the guys idea but not buying the bracelet and voila! You move that cheap watch you already owned to the other side of your body. Guilt avoided!
I tell you what - I am getting on this immediately. 21 days to a new me, people. Now, what is it I wanted to change??
