How You Can Stop Overthinking!

Are you having sleepless nights because of these heavy loads of thoughts that are coming and looping inside your mind? Or are you someone who is imagining the worst-case scenarios all the time whenever you are going to do something new? Or are you someone who is worrying about what other people will do? You think of me? Well, if you are such a person, you might be overthinking.

So let’s find out a way that where we can get out of our heads and quit overthinking and get the work done. So what we can do for this? No worries, let me give you the suggestion how you can control your overthinking.

The first and foremost thing that you have to do is to realize that overthinking is not going to help you in the process. You can plan, you can analyze, but do not overdo it. If you are overplanning, if you are overanalyzing, it’s not going to help you. It will distract you from the process. The first thing that you have to realize is that overthinking is not going to help you. The second thing, you can practice to be mindful. 

Now you may have a question like how can we practice the mindfulness? There are lot of ways and one of the reason is to be mindful about the breathing pattern. When you become more mindful about this inhale and exhale, your mind instantly come to the present moment. Now you’re only thinking about inhale and exhale. You’re being mindful about that. Now instantly, you reduced these thousands and thousands and looping thoughts to two thoughts. What are those two thoughts? Inhale and exhale. And exhale. So when you’re thinking like that, and when you become mindful, normally, automatically, you will find the peacefulness and you will stop overthinking about these things. So whenever you catch yourself overthinking what you have to do, take three deep breaths in and out. And just stay for a while by being mindful about your breathing pattern. Or you can be mindful about your body. You can ask from yourself that how am I sitting now? What am I doing now? And you ask these things from yourself, you can answer these things like, I’m sitting now. You can recognize it. When you do these things, you can be mindful.

If you’re mindful, your mind is in the present moment. And when your mind is in the present moment, your mind is in the peacefulness. There’s a saying, and it goes like this, if you are sad, then your mind is in the past. If you are anxious, your mind will be in the future. But if you are peaceful and if you are still, your mind is in the present moment. So start living in the present moment. When you live in the present moment, when you live right here, right now, you can be more peaceful and you can stop these overthinking patterns. And also, there’s another part of overthinking. What is that? The what if question. So many people ask from them that what if this happened? What if this not happens? What if everything that I did was wrong? They are constantly thinking about these things like that. They are imagining these worst case scenarios. So I must say something about them. So if you’re thinking this what if question again and again, you can ask from yourself, what if everything that I did was okay? You can be positive. What if everything that I’ve planned and I’ve done was really great?

So that can happen. There is always many possibilities for your plans to go okay. So don’t be negative. Always think, I’m not going to be perfect. I cannot be perfect, but I can be the best version of myself. I can do my best. I must do my best and be positive and go for it and take risks. Without taking risks, we cannot be successful in our lives. So practice these things. Be more mindful. Be more kind to yourself. And always think that if I overthink, if I constantly worry about myself, it will kill the peacefulness of my life. So I hope this small blog gave some insights that will support you to focus and taking steps to move forward to achieve your goals. So be peaceful and be mindful and get out of your head and start doing the works that you haven’t done.
