Diabetes is on the rise among Indian population and is considered as bad as an epidemic. So, if your blood report says that you too have diabetes, you ...
So when you are considering something ask yourself: Will this matter in next 4-5 years? On the other hand even in 4-5 weeks?
I have found that using so as to extend the point of view this straightforward inquiry can snap me rapidly out of overthinking and offer me to let that circumstance some assistance with going and centre my time and vitality on something that really does make a difference to me.
You may give example to yourself. Last time when you thought much and spoiled your days, that matter does not last for few days.
Don't think when you don't have control over a situation. If you do not have a time-limit for when you must make a decision and take action then you can just keep turning your thoughts around and around and view them from all angles in your mind for a very long time.
So learn to become better at making decisions and to spring into action by setting deadlines in your daily life. No matter if it is a small or bigger decision.
Stop trying to THINK FOR THE THINGS YOU HAVE NO CONTROL AND YOU CANNOT control everything. Trying to do so simply doesn't work because no one can see all possible scenarios in advance. Make yourself strong to face the situation rather than wasting your energy for situations which are not there.
So I follow up my "no, no..." phrase and I say to myself that I will think this situation or issue through when I know that my mind will work much better and I know the complete scenario.
For example, after I have eaten something or in the morning after I have gotten my hours of sleep. It took a bit of practice to get this to work but I have gotten pretty good at postponing thinking in this way. I have small kids . Istart playing with them or start looking at their pics and videos. And I know from experience that when I revisit a situation with some level-headed thinking then in 80% of the cases the issue is very small to non-existent. And if there is a real issue then my mind is prepared to deal with it in much better and more constructive way.
Another trap that I have fallen into many times that have spurred on overthinking is that I have gotten lost in vague fears about a situation in my life. And so my mind running wild has created disaster scenarios about what could happen if I do something.
So I have learned to ask myself: honestly, what is the worst that could happen?
And when I have figured out what the worst that could happen actually is then I can also spend a little time to think about what I can do if that often pretty unlikely thing happens. I have found that the worst that could realistically happen is usually something that is not as scary as what my mind running wild with vague fear could produce. Finding clarity in this way usually only takes a few minutes of time and bit of energy and it can save you a lot of time and suffering.
The best you can do to yourself.This might sound a bit odd. It most often makes me feel more decisive and when I was more of an overthinker then it was often my go-to method of changing the headspace I was in to a more constructive one.
By being in the present moment in your everyday life rather than in the past or a possible future in your mind you can replace more and more of the time you usually spend on overthinking things with just being here right now instead.
Your surroundings including people plays a big part. And not just the people and groups close to you in real life. But also what you read, listen to and watch. The blogs, books, forums, movies, podcasts and music in your life. Find ways to spend more of your time and attention with the people and sources that have a positive effect on your thinking and less on the influences that tends to strengthen your overthinking habit.
Forgiveness is of the highest of human virtues. Not because it is morally correct, spiritually mature, or deemed a commendable personality trait. It's special because it, single-handedly, can induce the ultimate peace in people.
Forgiveness has also been shown on many occasions to help develop positive self-esteem, improve mood, and dramatically improve health. It's a predictor of relationship well-being and marital length, and it has even been shown to increase longevity.
When we stress, we are basically wanting to control the stream of life since we are connected to the result of a circumstance. We need things to happen a specific way, and we are panicked that things could turn out badly or that terrible things could happen. In actuality, we have practically no influence over the developing of occasions in life, in any event not from the cognizant point of view that our stressing will specifically effect the result in the way we need. In this way, we can stress and fixate, or we can acknowledge all that IS and relinquished our connection to the results. The universe is way more established and savvier than us, and rather than fanatically stressing, we can relinquish control and with adoration and trust, surrender to the universe.
Surrender does not mean surrendering; It simply implies you are willing to float along with the current, rather than attempting to swim against it and getting over and again bashed into the stones. Surrender is a type of discharge and a type of peace, since it implies you are willing to trust that everything will work out as it is assumed to:Trust that everything happens in its appropriate time and place and you are precisely where you should be. Indeed, even the idea of stressing over "great" or "awful" results is imperfect from this point of view and just a manifestation of duality, which is just a hallucination. As you zoom out to the excellent plan of the universe, there is no such thing as "great" or "terrible" – it is each of the ONE, two sides of the same coin.
Yoga is very effective in eliminating those debilitating negative thoughts. It will take your attention away from your thoughts and focus them on your breathing. It is also a very relaxing exercise and will help ease your mind. Negative thinking will make you jump the gun and embark on a negative train but meditation brings you back to the present and away from wild probabilities imagined by your mind.
