A 'Happy New You' in the New Year
Date:12/19/2007

Join 5 Million People in Over 80 Countries Who Are Becoming COMPLAINT FREE

KANSAS CITY, Mo., Dec. 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- What began in a modest Missouri church has exploded into a worldwide phenomenon and become a popular New Year's resolution for 2008. People are giving up complaining and their health, relationships and careers are improving as a result.

"It's a very simple idea," said Complaint Free World founder Will Bowen, "but it's not easy." A person puts a purple rubber bracelet on either wrist and, when they catch themselves complaining, they switch the bracelet to the other wrist. "Scientists believe it takes 21 days to form a new habit," said Bowen, "The goal is to keep the bracelet on the same wrist for 21 consecutive days until being a Complaint Free person is habitual."

Thousands of schools, churches, hospitals, prisons, drug rehab centers, corporations, civic and social groups have gotten the purple bracelets and given them out with impressive results. Don Perry, a bridge designer who has made the 21 consecutive days said, "The complaint-free challenge has helped me to become happier with my work relationships and at home. My negative attitude was contagious in a poisonous way, but my new positive attitude is contagious in a healing way."

"Complaining is like bad breath," said Bowen, "you notice it when it comes out of someone else's mouth but not when it comes out of your own; and griping is not neutral, it's destructive. Research shows that people who habitually complain tend to have poorer health and less satisfying relationships. There are a lot of very positive reasons for giving up complaining."

But isn't it healthy to complain? "No," says Bowen, "It's healthy to take a problem directly and only to someone who can affect the change you seek. Griping to others is often a way of excusing yourself from taking action when action is called for."

"A Complaint Free World" has grown beyond its humble church beginnings and is now a non-profit organization sharing Complaint Free purple bracelets and other resources to improve the world one life at a time.

To answer the deluge of questions he has received about complaining, Will Bowen has written, "A Complaint Free World" [Doubleday].
