How to Stop Over-Thinking!

-Plan a specific time to think about it.

-Put a time limit on it. Don’t allow over-thinking to continue endlessly.

-Distract yourself.

-Firmly tell yourself to stop thinking about it.

-Write it down.

-Limit your choices. Fewer choices makes deciding easier.

-Let go of perfection. Strive for “good enough” rather than perfect.

-Embrace mistakes. Mistakes and disagreements are part of the growth process.

-Stay present-focused. Don’t spend time in “what if land”.
