Locke Hughes, a senior editor from Greatist, enjoys exploring ways to help her reader (and herself) lead a happier life. She has a passion for lifestyle, mental health, relationships, fitness, food, etc. She has an overthinking issue and previously experienced anxiety during her college life. On 1 April, she took a month-long mission to stop complaining, and she found it had changed her life to a certain extent. Therefore, she and her team are extending the challenge to all their readers to give it a try: stop complaining for one week.

We might feel that casually complaining often is a good way to let go of our emotions. Unfortunately, merely complaining and not coming up with a solution to overcoming a problem is not going to help anyone. Moreover, when you are doing it too frequently, your family and friends will be exhausted from listening to your constant complaints- and you might not be all too eager in losing their willingness to listen to you.
Here at EasyUni, we decided to give the daily tasks our own little twist:
I'm ready to show more gratitude and be optimistic for at least a week. I look forward to saying this sentence from the bottom of my heart: "Everything is really great."
