We are dying from overthinking. We are slowly killing ourselves by thinking about everything. Think. Think. Think. You can never trust the human mind anyway. It’s a death trap.” ~Sir Anthony Hopkins
Episode 39 is coming to you from Kas, Turkey. Today we’re talking about how to quiet that pesky voice in your head that over thinks and over analyzes everything. Boy is this a problem with us and everyone we know. We used to do it all the time in our relationship (why did he do that? is she mad at me? what does that mean?), and now we only do it half the time. Progress!
Dr. Amy Johnson joins us again to share insights from her new book, Being Human: Essays on Thoughtmares, Bouncing Back, and Your True Nature, which is available now on Amazon or at her website at DrAmyJohnson.com.
She’ll tell us why we’re all over-thinking (ahem, because we’re human!) and how to clear our minds as easily as we breathe. She also enlightens us on “thoughtmares,” and how to dismiss them as quickly as we do nightmares.
This is a powerful episode for anyone who overthinks, overanalyzes, or just can’t let go of certain thoughts. (And that pretty much includes everyone, we think. Isn’t it nice to know you’re not alone?)
