Methods to Stop Overthinking: 1. Set a "Worry Time"

Setting a "Worry Time"

As silly as it may sound, scheduling a period of time where you give yourself time to worry, trains your mind to address the worries by telling them you don't have time right now, but you will get round to addressing it later. Make sure it is no longer than an hour.

Scheduling this time also allows you to give these worries your full focus and attention. This means you are more likely to be able to come up with effective solutions for these worries, or you may even realise there was nothing to worry about to begin with.

Try to end sessions with meditation or similar.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
