Take a Break

Letting the inactive parts of your brain work through the problem can let the answer come to you when you’re not expecting it. 

When you find yourself overthinking about a problem, try moving on to another subject or changing your physical space by going for a walk, or moving your laptop to a conference room to work on something else.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

To avoid over-ruminating about a decision, give yourself a time frame to think about it. 

Dwelling on a problem, thinking “this is horrible, I can’t handle this” or rehashing things that happened in the past are an unproductive use of your time.

To avoid thinking about problems all day long, schedule a specific time where you give yourself the freedom to think about the issue you need to make a decision about.
