5 Reasons to quit overthinking:

1. Havoc hurts the head

When you’re overthinking, there are a million thoughts on repeat in your head and you’re obsessing over unnecessary details that quickly take up space in your head and make it a very unhealthy and uncomfortable place. Talk about a heavy head.

2. You become indecisive.

Because you are in a weak state of mind, your ability to make and commit to decisions is weakened too. It brings about doubt, worry and fear. This only wastes your time and energy.

3. You blind and block yourself

You become a prisoner to your thoughts and cannot see beyond your current circumstances. You are blinded by the blur in your mind. Anything that comes your way is perceived as a threat and so you cannot see it for the opportunity that it really is. When you quiet the mind the opportunities are endless and they’re all knocking on your door. If only you would open the door (to your mind).

4. Poor little pessimist

You allow every thought to repeat itself, grow and become even bigger. But remember the world is still a good place, there are good people and good things will happen to you. A part of getting out of your rut is to find your purpose which is a powerful way to get back on your feet and refocus your mind and energy.

5. You deserve to be happy

A little inner peace and a quiet mind never hurt anyone. In fact, it makes one very happy. You have to choose a side - happiness or heavy head? You can’t overthink your way to self love and an amazing life. Allow yourself the freedom from the fog in your mind.

I speak. I write. I coach.

I want to make the world a better place.

As an avid reader and writer, it’s no surprise that communications became my career and line of work. There is never one thing in particular that defines who I am, except the fact that I am passionate about everything I do. That made me the odd one out most of my life. It made realize how important it is to listen to my heart.
