I USED TO BE A NEWS JUNKIEbut over the last few years, I found that it caused me more stress than providing me with value. So I stopped.
CONSUMING TOO MUCH NEWScauses our mind to think further and deeper about the topic that we read or hear about.
But what Ive observed is that my mind would burrow deeper into sometimes a worrisome place after hearing of all the uncertainty in the world around me.NORMALLY THATSNOT A BAD THING

In March of this year, I was forced to give up my big morning cup of coffee that I had for about 20 years. AND IT WASVERY DIFFICULT.
My overthinking slowed. Coupled with a regular morning run on the treadmill, my mind was so much clearer and balanced.GIVING UP CAFFEINE INADVERTENTLY HAD A POSITIVE SIDE EFFECT:
REDUCING SUCH STIMULANTS HELPED TO DETOX MY MIND.NO RUSH, NO CRASH.

ALL THE WORRIESOF THE WORLDget into our head and dont seem to leave, causing us to overthink our life and the actions we want to take.
FILL IT WITH POSITIVE THOUGHTS.I took charge of what went into my head and made a choice to
ON A GOAL, A PROJECT OR A SPECIFIC TASK.4GET UP AND GETTO WORK
ONE TIP THAT IVE LEARNEDthat did more than detox my mind from overthinking is to turn my often worrisome thoughts about the future into focused effort and work.
TAKING ACTION, DOING SOMETHING,working on your craft does wonders for your soul.
it forces our mind to concentrate on the things that our physical body is working on and so the mind has no choice but to assist the physical effort. THE REASON ACTION IS A GREAT WAYTO DETOX FROM OVERTHINKING IS THAT
WE DETOX OUR BODY BECAUSE WE WANTTO LOOK GOOD AND FEEL GOOD. I believe that increasingly we need to detox our mind from all the overthinking because we have a love to pursue, a career to grow, a business to launch and a life to live.
THIS IS OUR TIME, OUR JOURNEY, OUR LIFEwhat we choose to put into it is our choice.Stop Overthinking. Start Living.
