"Your brain has too many tabs open..close them" - A thread on overthinking

  • Your brain has too many tabs open..close them.
  • We suffer more often in imagination that in reality.
  • Overthinking leads to problems that don't even exist in the first place.
  • If you treat every situation as a life and death matter, you’ll die a lot of times.
  • If it’s out of your hands, it deserves freedom from your mind also.
  • Sometimes you need to hit pause & press next, because not everything you tell yourself is true.
  • Nothing diminishes anxiety faster than action.
  • When you’re thinking and thinking about something then ask yourself: Will this matter in 5 years? Or even in 5 weeks?
  • Direct your focus fully outward instead of inward. Two good ways to get outside your own head are: 1. Help someone else out. 2. Exercise.
  • Keep your mind off things that don't help you think positively.
  • You're loved, someone out there loves you more than you think.
  • You ain't bothering anyone at all, they would love to hear more of your thoughts.
  • Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.
