How to Stop Over-Analyzing Everything

At one point or another, everyone engages in over-analyzing. But some people find themselves trapped in this circular thought process far more often than most other people, which causes strain, stress, and frustration. If you find yourself consistently over-analyzing every little circumstance, follow these steps to break out of that unhealthy pattern.

Understand the Difference Between Processing and Over-Analyzing

Big decisions and difficult conversations require some time to process. You're not over-analyzing if you give yourself time to gauge your reaction and understand your emotions. But once you step outside of how you feel and start picking apart the situation, you've crossed into stressful territory. Decide how you feel and how you want to act, then move forward with the decision.

Stop Assuming

A very common thought process among over-analyzers is to assume things about situations and other people. You can't know what's going to happen in the future, just as you can't know what someone else is thinking. But if you spend time over-analyzing, your assumptions start to feel real. As soon as you start assuming, question the assumption. Chances are you're imagining the worst scenario without any concrete evidence to back it up.

Recognize and Release your Negativity

Unfortunately, everyone suffers from negative thoughts. You'll never be able to completely get rid of them, but you can learn to manage and minimize them so they don't take over your thought patterns. The key to getting rid of negativity is to crowd it out with the positive. Surround yourself with people who make you feel good, and every time you have a negative thought, write down three positive things instead.

Visit Your Psychic

A psychic online can help guide you through your choices and anxieties. When you're over-analyzing a situation, your psychic may help you focus on the most positive potential paths and help release the clutter of all the negative outcomes you may be imagining. Over-analyzing hinders your ability to make the decisions that are best for you, so take the time to get a genuine psychic reading that can walk you through letting go of those thought patterns and using your energy in a productive way.

Focus on What You Can Control

Many over-analyzers spend a lot of time thinking about things out of their control, which is a waste of energy. If you have a tendency to do this, make a list of things that are in your control. This will help you focus your energy into areas of your life that will give you results. Make a list of small, achievable goals and direct your time to tackling those goals one at a time. Once you start focusing on things that are directly in your control, you will feel more proactive about the direction of your life.

Seeing a problem from all angles doesn't mean you have to succumb to stress and start over-analyzing everything. Instead, spend your energy focusing on what you can control, what you want to do, and the positive circumstances that come of it.
