Category: overthinking

I need a break from my own thoughts.

1. Write it down, and try to summarise your thoughts and feelings in a short paragraph.

2. Set aside a specific time, and a specific amount of time, to think about the issue.

3. When you find yourself overthinking again, interrupt your thinking by distracting yourself.

4. Remind yourself that many problems solve themselves, and disappear, with time.

5. Change your environment.

6. Engage your brain in a demanding task.

7. Exercise or do something physical.

1. When you feel bogged down and you can’t clear your mind, do something physical, or get some exercise.

2. Set a time limit for your ‘thinking time’ then make yourself move on to doing something else.

3. Interrupt the thinking process or distract yourself by diverting your attention onto something very different.

4. Stop discussing what concerns you with everyone you meet. You’ll just end up confused, and you won’t know what to do.

5. Accept that uncertainty is part of this life. We don’t have all the facts, or know what’s further down the road.

6. Throw yourself into a project, a hobby or some work. That will force you to refocus on something else instead.

m7. Let your mind go blank and just relax for a while. It will help you see more clearly when you start to think, next time.

We are dying from overthinking. We are slowly killing ourselves by thinking about everything. Think. Think. Think. You can never trust the human mind anyway. It’s a death trap.

Overthinking is the biggest cause of our unhappiness. Keep yourself occupied. Keep your mind off things that don’t help you.

Overthinking can be dangerous as it tends to create problems that aren’t really there.

The problem is not the problem. The problem is the incredible amount of over-thinking you’re doing with the problem.
