In this day and age, many of us engage in unwanted and unhealthy patterns of thought and behavior. We’re overstressed, overworked, and overstimulated, and the combination of the three can take a toll on our long-term wellbeing.
Regardless of age, background, or occupation, an increasingly large number of people are experiencing both anxiety and depression. While there are many factors that can contribute to these kinds of unhealthy mental states, there’s no question that we can engage in healthier habits and mental patterns in order to alleviate them.
Time and again, we fall prey to the same trap: overthinking things. It’s understandable why we engage in this unhealthy pattern. With the sheer number of decisions that we have to make each and every day, and the plethora of options available to us, it’s easy to analyze every possibility in our lives ad nauseum. In fact, doing anything less than this can make us feel careless or lazy. We may convince ourselves that overthinking things is actually a healthy behavior, because it leads to better, more predictable outcomes.
This is rarely the case, however. Instead, overanalyzing and engaging in endless amounts of rumination fails to bring us any closer to making good decisions. Instead, we cause ourselves unnecessary distress as we constantly attempt to arrive at the “perfect” decision, when no such thing is even possible in the first place.
In this guided meditation and mindfulness exercise, you’ll learn how to let go of negative, unhealthy patterns that involve overthinking and overanalyzing. This will help you achieve a greater sense of peace, calm, and clarity. In turn, you’ll be able to reduce your feelings of anxiety, stress, and depression thanks to these valuable mindfulness techniques. Remember to be gentle with yourself, as everything takes time and practice.
