The only way to stop identifying yourself with your thoughts is to stop following through on all your thoughts ✋ . Instead, decide to live in the present moment—where you don’t have time to think, only to experience.
1. Raise your awareness throughout the day.
2. When you raise awareness, immediately start observing your thoughts.
3. Only limit your thinking to specific moments that you need it.
4. Enjoy your life! Let go of all your thoughts about yesterday and tomorrow.

Chronic overthinkers rehash conversations they had yesterday, second-guess every decision they make and imagine disastrous outcomes all day every day.
Thinking too much prevents them from getting anything done. And it wreaks havoc on their mood.
