A strong question at a tough time, I know it’s a pandemic, for Petesakes, you might well be saying, and, I get it! But there is a growing reason for asking it, right now as scholars of the world are starting to realize that one serious throwback from COVID 19, amid the many other obvious ones, is the increase in negative thinking and in particular, negative mongering! Individuals, going around, broadcasting baseless post scenario outcomes post-pandemic time. I say, baseless, as we have no real, modern, evidential data on which to make these claims.
The problem is that when we think about something, our brains are trying to figure out why it’s there. If we think about something for too long, (in quarantine) our brain starts to make connections between things that aren’t really there. This can lead to problems like, feeling anxious or depressed. Experiencing anxiety or depression and feeling overwhelmed by your thoughts and emotions.
The best solution is to focus more on happiness and peace. Instead of focusing on the negative,try to focus on positive things, which, by the way, are actually always there, ie. eating healthy, breathing properly, stretching, and enjoying the company of someone and the increased time you got to spend with them.
The best possible way is to stop overthinking and start doing things at home that bring you joy. I’m not saying don’t worry about important things, but just remember that you’re human and have ups and downs in your version of a normal life. So, If you find yourself overthinking, then it’s time to take action. Like I said, It’s okay to feel sad or angry. It doesn’t mean you should let go of those feelings either, for it may just be, because of those very sincere qualities you have, that you are so endearing to your family and friends. It also means you need to be able to accept that there are times when your emotions will be out of control. Sometimes they will be hard to deal with and others may seem like they’re going to get better but don’t. Whatever the case is, it’s important that you learn from these experiences and move on.
Don’t worry about what others think of you-just keep moving forward and trying again in the future. This is a great way to start breaking bad habits and building new ones. It is also a good idea to take time off from work for some days. This can help you feel more confident and less stressed. Think that you have more energy and motivation to continue doing things. You’ll be able to focus on your goals and achieve them faster. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by all the things that are going on in your life, then this is a great way to get back into action.
Don’t worry about what other people might think of you, just be yourself, keep moving forward and try again until you find‘something that works for you. Don’t let the fear of failure stop you from achieving your goals. You can always learn from your mistakes and make better decisions later. If you want to change your habits, start small and later you will achieve big in your life.
