Publisher's Summary

Is overthinking a mental disorder? What is overthinking a symptom of? Is overthinking a sign of intelligence?

End the cycle of overthinking.

Thoughts are powerful.

Your thoughts become your reality.

What is holding people back from the life that they truly want to live?

They overthink every little problem until it becomes bigger and scarier than it actually is. They overthink positive things until they don’t look so positive anymore (and as the anxiety starts to build).

Pay attention to your thoughts.

Sometimes it's hard to see that you're overthinking because it's such a habit - you don't even notice what you're doing. One way to keep track of what you're thinking about is by jotting things down somewhere. You could go old-school with a journal, or write your entry on-the-go using your phone.

Focus on what you can control.

If you’re feeling really stressed and just need to calm down in a hurry, take a short walk or use a few minutes to meditate or pare your focus down to what’s in front of you. When you’re feeling calmer, think about how your attitude and effort can make a difference now and in the future.

Question your thoughts.

Don't let yourself get carried away by negative thoughts. Recognize that your mind may be making mountains out of molehills, as your emotions interfere with your ability to look at situations objectively.

Take time to reflect.

Dwelling on your problems for too long is never a good idea, but reflection can be useful. Give yourself time to think your thoughts, and mull over why you're mulling them over.

It takes some effort, but keeping your overthinking to a minimum is 100 percent feasible and 1,000 percent worth the work! In this guide you’ll learn:

  • The dangers of overthinking
  • 4 ways to stop thinking too much
  • How to retrace the past to improve the future
  • Mindfulness and other techniques to make room for useful thoughts
  • Awareness training - how-to
  • Techniques to free yourself from intrusive thoughts
  • How to apply mental minimalism
  • Rules for applying minimalism in everyday

This audiobook is awesome

I found the content of this book ok, there is a lot of basic "This is why" and "These are the symptoms of" which if you're familiar with mental health are not very useful.
