I overthink things alot, to the point that it makes me stuck. But if i just go and trust my instincts and intuition and realize that I need time to process situations through my value system I will learn alot more about myself, the people that are good for me and good activities. Getting a counselor and staying busy have really worked for me. Also Mel Robbins gave a lecture on how the brain tries to stop you from doing new things… and the things you have to do to create new paths and move ahead… inspiring. Exercising, talking, working and learning have also helped me maintain a healthy lifestyle with less stress
I admit that I am a stress head. Exercise and keeping busy are definitely two ways to deal with the dreaded S word. I’m also contemplating doing Cognative Behavioural Therapy – I have heard amazing things about how this works to change your perception of problems. Well done on taking positive and proactive steps to improve your mental (and physical) well being!
