Gluten-free, Lactose-free, Low-Carb, Fat-Free, MSG-Free. For a long while I spent more time on my physical diet and didn’t give much consideration to my mental diet.
I could tell you why not to eat “empty” calories but I did not understand the mental equivalent of empty calories, otherwise known as complaining.

"We have no more right to put our discordant states of mind into the lives of those around us and rob them of their sunshine and brightness than we have to enter their houses and steal their silverware." – Julia Moss Seton
When we complain, we draw negative things to us because we’re putting out negative energy. Therefore one of the most important healthy diet habits we can learn is not to complain. Strip your mental diet of complaining and see for yourself the difference it makes!
