The reason why I say it is best to not overthink is because most of the stress caused in todays population and as it always was caused is by overthinking something.
Sometimes we are feeling sick. Due to all the bad news on Live TV, we are all lead to believe that we have contracted one of those deadly diseases so we book an appointment to see a doctor to have ourselves checked out. We sit in the waiting room riddled with fear that we may receive the news that our hours are being counted. We get checked out and we up being diagnosed with a common cold. Do you see how overthinking makes you stressed out and anxious?
How to NOT overthink
- When you find yourself in a position overthinking something, reprogram your mind to think about something completely different. You are the master of your own mind.
- If a topic is lingering and it feels necessary to ponder with it and to overthink about it then it probably is. Remember, your mind is also programmed to give you ideas if you find yourself in a difficult situation.
- If its not an important thing that you are overthinking, forget about it.
- Lastly, do not listen to what people are saying. Referring to my doctors room analogy, don’t ponder on implications that aren’t relevant. In extreme cases, make an exception to think about it but do not overthink anything. Prevent yourself from being stressed out and you will find yourself to be much more comfortable and you will feel better, health wise.
Don’t listen to the people that tell you to freak out when you are in doubt. I repeat, DO NOT LISTEN TO THEM.
Blessings to all
