Don't Overthink It

by Anne Bogel


Overthinking – devoting excessive mental energy to issues that don't deserve it – is bad for us. It lowers our mood, saps our time and energy, and keeps us from being present to enjoy life's richness.

In Don't Overthink It, author and blogger Anne Bogel shares the strategies she uses to successfully manage her own overthinking tendencies.

Bogel's techniques range from managing overthinking as it's happening 'in the moment,' to addressing background factors that reduce its occurrence, and reclaiming the time and abundance that overthinking consumes.

Bogel's conclusion: nobody is doomed to be an overthinker forever.
