How To Stop Overthinking

I finished reading this book that I got from an independent author off Amazon and really enjoyed it. Below are the key takeaways I would like to remember or put into action from this book.

  • I want to start a daily journal that’s just for me to look at. Something I can write in without the worry of making it sound appropriate for an audience or making sure I am grammatically correct. It should just be for me to spill out my thoughts onto the pages. I feel right now there is no avenue for me to push out my thoughts and emotions. Right now I just have mental input, with no mental output
  • In the journal one thing I want to keep track of is the trigger points for my anxiety. A daily practice of recording these should make me feel more aware of what the trigger points are and how to combat them.
  • I want to practice mindfulness every day by meditating. I downloaded the Headspace app so that I can start doing this everyday. My goal is to do 10 minutes each morning with 20 minutes on Saturdays and Sundays.
  • I want to go back to having a To-Do List for work and home life. I used to be really good about keeping a to-do list but then I tried to switch over to digital and kind of lost the momentum there. I’m going to resume this back in a notebook starting today.
  • I also want to come up with a to-do list that’s based off a people. A one-sheet for all the people that report to me and the people I collaborate with
  • I also want to start a gratitude list that I review each morning.
  • I want to limit cell phone screen time to 2 hours each day
