Overthinking is where you are thinking too much, however overthinking can be an early indicator of symptoms of depression, anxiety, and other Mental Health conditions.

Over Thinking can also be where you are overly worried about things that are entirely out of control. Therapy can be a great way to understand why you are overthinking so frequently.

Here some overthinking symptoms you may experience constant worry and may feel sick:

  • Difficulty in relaxing
  • Negative thoughts and underlying negative thoughts
  • Difficulty in decision making
  • Feeling anxious

These are the most common overthinking but can get help.

Did you know that meditation and mindfulness moments decoding any thoughts or emotions, you may have are intrusive. Mindfulness can train your brain; this helps to calm you down and makes it easier to sleep.

Spend time reading a book, journal or listening to music instead of being on social media.

Decision Making can be another reason why people overthink because they may worry over big or small decisions.

Think about your time and use it wisely, get a family member or a friend to help you with the decision, maybe use the time as a guide, for example, get this done by 8am to 9am then move on to the next thing.

CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapist) will be great help if you need someone to help especially when you are overthinking and cannot get help, in addition to this you can go into depression and anxiety with this. Here are some links if you need help:
