I got a question on Quora that asked about what to do when you overthink so much that you become unhappy. Here are a few of my tips…

Let me know what you think, ask me a question, or suggest something I cover in the future in the comments below!

 

 

What to do if you tend to overthink everything:

I’m guilty of overthinking everything. If you’re like me, you can’t help but analyze every possible outcome and think years into the future for every little thing.

My advice is to experiment with going with your gut feeling more often. I say this because if you are naturally prone to overthinking everything, your gut feeling or quick decision may still be more thought-out than most people’s.

There’s really no on-off switch that I’ve found for overthinking. It’s just how you’re wired.

It can be an advantage though if you trust yourself more to go with your instincts because you naturally will have at least thought it through a little first. It’s probably better to naturally overthink than to naturally under-think.

Use your overthinking side more for bigger decisions and things of that nature.
