Publisher's Summary

Are you stuck inside your own head? Learn how to stop obsessing and start really living with this breakthrough guide.

In today's world, it's easy to get stuck in an endless loop of negative thoughts. And if you're like many people, you've probably tried to think your way out of one of these thought cycles, throwing more thoughts on the pile until you're left with an out-of-control bonfire of anxiety, self-criticism, resentment, catastrophizing, and hopelessness. Attempting to stop your thoughts or replace them with positive ones is like rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic. Inevitably, you drown in a sea of unhappiness. Has it ever worked for you? If the answer is "no", it's probably time to find a real solution.

In Can't Stop Thinking, psychotherapist and spiritual counselor Nancy Colier offers the key to breaking free from the repetitive and obsessive thinking that is causing your stress, anxiety, worry, and unhappiness: Change your relationship with your thoughts. Using a powerful blend of mindfulness and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), you'll learn how to surrender your thinking mind, and end repetitive thinking, rumination, and self-criticism - freeing you up to discover a life of self-compassion, presence, peace, and joy.

this was anxiety inducing

This book increased my anxiety in a big way. There was almost no advice on how to deal with the problem.

Steps to Peace of Mind

Highly recommend this brilliant book. It is a guide to letting go of obsessive thinking with clear illuminating steps to finding spacious awareness. It is helpful that the chapter titles are listed for quick reference.

The narrator did a good job.

Very helpful point of view

If you suffer from anxiety and over thinking your life, this book is a godsend. i have listened twice and will likely listen again. This is a form of meditation and therapy.

Pretty good book but not a good narrator.

Great information that I really needed! Some parts seemed very repetitive but I guess that is part of really driving home the point of the book.
The narrator was really hard to listen to…I put this on a faster speed to get through it a little quicker.

Going on Being the Dzogchen version

Very useful, but it is a lot of various therapy session retellings. If that's your thing, you’ll dig this book a lot. Wish it spent a little more time on technique or pointing out.

Happy I listened.

Very helpful book - awful narration

I bought this audiobook and the Kindle version. The information is extremely helpful, and listening to the audio helps to interrupt my thinking spirals, but the narration is terrible. I can still appreciate the information, but, to me, the narrator sounds like my Alexa.
