3. Focus On The Positive Side
Overthinking is normally caused by fear. You fear consequences and negative things that could happen, and this leads to anxiety, stress, and sometimes, even panic attacks. We’re not saying you shouldn’t think about consequences or the negative side of things, but you shouldn’t leave out the positive ones either. Instead of thinking about what could possibly go wrong, start imagining what could actually go right. Think about why you’re feeling bad, but also remember what you can feel good about. Focusing on the positive side of things is one of the simplest tips to be happy. A happy person is not filled with happiness; a happy person is aware of the negative but chooses to focus on the positive. It’s all about finding the right balance.
4. Stop Aiming For Perfection
If you truly want to know how to enjoy life to the fullest, you have to learn to accept yourself as you are, flaws and all. Overthinking is related to this idea of perfection that we possess about how we want to be, look, or see ourselves in the future. The problem is, perfection does not exist! We spend our lives aiming for a perfect life, an ideal job, house, car, family. And that’s not possible. But since when has perfection become a good thing? In your eyes, perfection should be boring. It’s the problems, the tough decisions, and the bad times that make the good stuff worth it. Life is a balance of bad and good things. It’s your job to live and survive these things in the best way you can, it will never be perfect, and it doesn’t have to be.
5. You will never be able to predict the future
The future is a mystery, and you should repeat this to yourself every night before going to sleep. The universe is in charge, and there’s nothing you can do about it. You are just one tiny person in this big world, and everything will play out as it needs to. By repeating these affirmations, out loud or in your head, you’ll notice how your anxiety will start to disappear. We’re so afraid of the future when in reality, there’s no way to predict it. It’s important to know your ambitions and desires, but don’t let that keep you from enjoying what life has to offer you now!
