Here are six ways to stop overthinking everything:
  1. Notice when you're stuck in your head. Overthinking can become such a habit that you don't even recognize when you're doing it.
  2. Keep the focus on problem-solving.
  3. Challenge your thoughts.
  4. Schedule time for reflection.
  5. Learn mindfulness skills.
  6. Change the channel.
Here's the 4 step process I've used to stop overthinking.
  1. Raise your awareness throughout the day. Always realize that too much thinking defeats the purpose.
  2. When you raise awareness, immediately start observing your thoughts.
  3. Only limit your thinking to specific moments that you need it.
  4. Enjoy your life!
