How To Stop Over-Thinking

  • Plan a specific time to think about it.
  • Put a time limit on it. Don’t allow over-thinking to continue endlessly.
  • Distract yourself.
  • Firmly tell yourself to stop thinking about it.
  • Write it down.
  • Limit your choices. Fewer choices makes deciding easier.
  • Let go of perfection. Strive for “good enough” rather than perfect.
  • Embrace mistakes. Mistakes and disagreements are part of the growth process.
  • Stay present-focused. Don’t spend time in “what if land”.
