Don’t Think Of What Can Go Wrong, But What Can Go Right
In several cases of overthinking, it’s caused by a single yet powerful emotion, fear. When you focus on all the negative things that may happen, it’s easy to become paralyzed within those negative thoughts. Next time you sense that you’re beginning to spiral in that direction, stop.
Visualize all the things that can go right and keep those thoughts present and up front. Start thinking about everything going in your favor rather than the opposite. Positive thinking will kill any negative thoughts or overthinking you find yourself doing.
