How to Stop Overthinking?

Most of us are dwelling back and forth in the memories of past and worries of future. With rising stress, we start feeling lonely, frustrated and depressed. At that time, we just want to pack your bags and want to run away from that place. Is it with me or Are you facing some problems? Let’s start finding a solution to it because obviously we can’t pack our bags and go somewhere, ultimately our this job is earning bread and house rent for us, we are bound to it to fulfil our goals.

Stop Blaming And Forgive Yourself

Let’s us move step by step to overcome this challenge of life. Many of us are locking ourselves in the chains of regret and guilt because of the choices we have made in the past. We are continuously blaming ourselves.  You are human and humans are bound to make mistakes. Maybe your decisions are worse than others but this is your life you cannot spoil it based on some decisions.

“Imagine you are walking on the subway with a cup of coffee but suddenly you hit a pole because of the crowd and end up spilling half of your coffee. So, now will you keep the regret of half spill coffee throughout the life or will enjoy the other half of life, This is the same as Life, Do you want to end another half of your life regretting about the mistakes you made in the first half of your life”.

It’s the time to forgive yourself and work on a better version of you.

Overcome fear Of The Outcome

I always had this issue of overthinking and analysing about the future, I keep on analysing all the permutation and combinations of winning in life. Sometimes, the fear of losing and not fulfilling my goals made me upset or make me panic while reaching my goal. In fact, The whole world has seen ” The God of Cricket – Sachin Tendulkar” at his nervous 90’s, so who are we, everyone can have that fear but do you realise that our this fear often stops us from reaching our goal. So, don’t you think, you should stop putting yourself in this hot water?

Choose Between Belief and Reality 

As a kid, I was very scared of ghosts, some of us are still scared of them. Do you remember the last time when you saw a horror movie and you were a little terrified while sleeping at night and you felt that there can be a ghost in your room? Although, you are aware that there are no ghosts in real but still it haunts us. This is what belief is, some of us overthink about our beliefs which may or may not exist. We leave the door of reality and choose to live in a room of belief.

Keep Yourself Busy 

It’s a very old saying -” The empty mind is the devil’s workshop”. Free mind welcomes a number of thoughts. Keep yourself busy with work, goals, friends or whatever you like. There is a number of options available these days to keep yourself busy which may also help you to enhance your skills, you can join some courses you like or watch some web series.

Share Your Heart Out

Share your thoughts, problems, guilts and problems with someone you trust, sometimes it makes us feel relief. Generally, I pen down my thoughts to release myself from the burden of thoughts.

Writer’s Tip – If half spill cup of coffee affects you so much then buy a new cup of coffee for yourself. Create a world which keeps you happy, you have all the rights to change the things which don’t keep you happy. A world with your choice of office, job, apartment, song, party, person, friend or city which makes you feel happy.

Your Positivity Can Turn You To The Happiest Soul…

Your Positivity can turn you to the happiest soul” – I wrote this quote when I was in 10th grade(2010) but could actually realise it’s meaning this year. Have you seen some people who are very positive, smiling, cheerful and always full of energy? I always use to wonder how those people have a magnetic personality and I get magnified or attracted to them always, now I realise what enchants us is their positive aura. Moreover, I always wonder why we humans are always attracted to negative thoughts, negative deeds and have a negative perception towards life.

I believe universe actually reverts us what we are – “If we are positive we attract positivity and if we are negative then we attract negativity“. The universe always gives you what we desire and how we behave. “Life is like a boomerang, Be ready to catch what you throw”. With a positive mindset, we can find a solution to every challenge of life without disturbing our mental health. Whilst negative thinking or a negative attitude will turn into a negative situation. Moreover, people with a negative mindset finds the problem with every solution even if the situation is in their favour, Remember as a kid, you always felt that there is more food in your sibling’s bowl that was just your negative attitude. The negative attitude will always make you feel that grass is greener on the other side and you will be deprived or miss out what you actually possess in your life.

Your attitude always influences people,  a good attitude always results in good interactions at the interview, work, social gatherings etc. As I mentioned above, positive attitude and talks have very enchanting and magnetic feature while your negative attitude will always put you in trouble, make you lose your calm and you will find yourself trapped in the chains of frustration, depression or aggression. I have seen a number of people blaming luck as soon as they encounter mishap because of their negativity but maybe luck is just giving them a better chance to move towards a better path.

You can overcome all the roadblocks with your positive attitude. Try to find ways to build happiness and positive emotions into your life, Do whatever makes you feel positive –  hitting the gym, meditation, writing, travelling or singing. We are addicted to our thoughts. We can not change anything if we can not change the way we think. Each and every coin has two faces, try to look for the rosy face of every situation. Stop overthinking and comparing yourself with anyone out in this world. Avoid negative people and stop feeding negativity to your soul, it will make you weak and unhappy.

It all begins and ends in your mind. what you give power to, has power over you if you allow it.
