What is overthinking? Is it thinking too much? Is it worrying too much? It seems to be a cycle of thoughts that leads to worrying when it won’t break.
We read into every little thing – from when we don’t get a text back to when someone glances at us and we interpret it as a threat; it’s by design. We can control our thoughts and the extent they exist with a purposeful focus that stops any worry and anxiety before it even starts.
1. See the bigger picture.
Fractal everything out. In any situation, you can take yourself and view it from a higher or objective perspective. When you feel overwhelmed from all your responsibilities, take your view point out of the equation. Clear your mind, merge with the void for a moment. See what you are working toward, see the bigger picture of what you want in your life.
Is what you’re doing right now working toward your passion? If not, shift onto the path that will bring you the most joy!
2. Stay present.
This is so important in all aspects of life. Being fully aware, engaged and present takes interaction and connection to a whole new level. By focusing on each point in an interaction and not going off in thought is crucial to not overthinking.
When we are already lost in a train of thought while a conversation is still going, we don’t fully experience it and it’s not fair to those engaging with us.
We don’t give the energy back when we aren’t fully engaged with others. Stay present, take a breath and straighten your back every time you feel yourself slip into disengagement.
3. Be a person of action.
Do what you’ll say you’ll do because actions speak SO much louder than words. If you have a plan or something you’ve been talking about doing; do it. Bring your idea’s to fruition because we are creators and that’s what we came here to do.
When we are in a zone of creation, that pure focused energy is immensely powerful and is the push that brought us everything we use today.
All the inventions, everything we can physically use were once ethereal thoughts that we brought forth from the higher realms onto the 3D!
4. Let go; find peace in the unknown.
Break the cycle of overthinking the same thing. It brings nothing but anxiety and creates preconceived expectations that aren’t fair to anyone.
When you find yourself caught in a thought cycle, take a breath, look around and focus on your environment to get yourself back in the moment. It’s all about where your focus is and how long you can keep it there. Practice expanding your attention span and putting your energy into what brings you joy.
