Overthinking

As it is clear by the word that overthinking means thinking too much. Overthinking is like just continuously thinking of things instead of doing or acting them. You are overthinking; If you are repeating your thoughts over again and again but you are not doing that. Overthinking prevent you from making progress in life, it prevents you from doing new things. over-thinking just consumes your energy and time but there is no benefit of overthinking. In over-thinking thinking whenever any minor problem comes in front of you it makes you feel bigger and scarier than an actual one.

Causes and Impacts of Overthinking

Overthinking impacts much on your emotional regulation and sleep pattern and it makes your life harder to enjoy. Over-thinking bounds you in certain thoughts which are completely useless to think of, it is just like you are connected to any pole with rope and you are continuously going in circles again and again. You are not stepping forward you are held in a past pattern.

Overthinking is caused by self-doubts or by Low self-esteem. it is also caused by anxiety, stress, depression, and demotivation. Overthinking spoils all your inner peace. All of your happiness disappears in a single moment due to overthinking.

Now the question arises that what type of thoughts you face in over-thinking. Are they positive and beneficial or they are negative and harmful? So, it depends on the situation or on the thing that you are thinking about. You can judge which type of thoughts they are (but most of the time these thoughts just seem to be positive but are not in real life).

Most of the time people don’t admit that they are over-thinker. It feels shameful to hear that you are over-thinker and this thought came in your mind is also due to over-thinking. I am also an overthinker and I proudly admit it because it’s not a crime to be an over-thinker. Overthinking is also a part of our life. I am used to be an overthinker for a long time but now I am also able to deal with over-thinking.

Side effects of overthinking and how to control

Accept it

Always accept that you are an overthinker because sometimes it also happens like that you start pretending that you aren’t an overthinker and this happens when someone continuously says that you are over-thinking and stop it. Even if you are not over-thinking at the moment so in such a situation you just start pretending that you aren’t so first please accept that you are.

Point out

Now point out all of those things which you think of or those every thought which you overthink about and keep them with you. So, it will help you a lot because it is like a mirror for you whenever you look in that so always keep an eye on yourself keeping a diary is the best thing you can do.

Meditation

Avoid them

Whenever you are feeling like you are overthinking just avoid them and start doing something. You know you just overthink when you are completely free so engage yourself in any work and then give your complete concentration on them. Or start moving like go on to a walk and focus on your walk keep your mind out of that thoughts and give a look to your surroundings. It will help you in two ways one is you stop overthinking and second is it increases your observation power.

  11. I think as we mature, we overcome overthinking bit by bit. We learn through experiences and most of the time it proves that what we think for so many hours is actually not needed. The right thing to do is to face a situation right from the start.

  12. I’ve been struggling worse than usual with losing sleep to worry. Sometimes it just doesn’t feel good enough to accept it and move on, the insomnia takes over. I guess i just need to be better about meditating?

  13. I know how overthinking affects.. These days, you know the issue.. I had done so much for people till date, and today when a friend who really needs help and just because I am unable to help due to my problems, no one is there, not the one I help. This overthinking has increased my anxiety. I dont know if the solutions will work. I will try….
