NEGATIVE THOUGHTS

  •  Anger
  •  Complain
  •  Worry
  •  Blaming others

POSITIVE THOUGHTS

  • Trying to solve problems
  • Understanding the situation
  • Planning
  • Visualization

Positive thoughts make your life better, and negative thoughts will make your life worst to worst.
Spend eighty percent of your time focusing on the opportunities of tomorrow rather than the problems of yesterday.”
– Brian Tracy

How to overcome this…

1)Acceptance:- Firstly you have to accept that you are overthinking.When we eat more then we say yes we overthink and we do something about it,so why not this for our overthinking mind.’when you overthink you need to stop it’.

2) Note the thoughts, any kind of thoughts running variably in your mind, just note them down.

3) Meditation – Meditation is a must, start one-minute meditation, focus on the breath in and breath out regularly increased by one minute, it works only if you do it every day.
4) Realize why you overthink – Realize that you are overthinking and overcome this as soon as possible. Just keep yourself busy with anything. Like-
   – reading books
    – watching videos
     – start writing
      – start walking and observe things
        -do whatever you want — yoga, dance, painting, etc.

5) Learn something new and concentrate on new things.

If overthinking is about negative thoughts then convert them into a positive one, enthusiasm.

If you treat every situation as a life and death matter, you’ll die a lot of times.”
 Dean Smith

There is a great remedy in homeopathy for overthinking-

For males – Nux Vomica

For females -Ignatia

  1. You are right
    To stop overburdening ourselves with thinking, we have to be preoccupied with other things.
    For example, I am so tired of thinking that I cannot sleep.
    I blame myself
    I just put all the mistakes on myself.
    But recently, I started to busy myself with sewing with wool.
    I don’t have a knack for sewing, but I looked for something that would take me out of the line of thought.
    Indeed, I began to learn and found myself that all my focus and thinking was on the piece of wool that I worked on
    I never looked back like before thinking about the problems I had
