What does it mean to overthink and Worry?

Overthinking — also referred to as rumination — is when you repetitively dwell on the same thought or situation over and over to the point it gets in the way of your life. Overthinking usually falls into two categories: ruminating about the past or worrying about the future.

If you’re struggling with overthinking, you may feel “stuck” or unable to take any action at all. It can be hard to get the thoughts out of your mind or concentrate on anything else. Sometimes, overthinking can even make things worse.

“The hallmark of overthinking is that it is unproductive,” says Jessica Foley, a licensed psychotherapist in Waltham, Massachusetts. “An example might be spending hours ruminating on a decision and perhaps missing a deadline or losing sleep.”

Overthinking is not the same as being stressed or worried about a specific circumstance. Having a lot of thoughts about a stressful situation in the short-term can prompt you to make a move. When you’re nervous about an important work presentation, for example, that stress can help you spring into action. You’ll work hard on the project and leave a bit early the day of to ensure you’re on time.

This course directly addresses the problem of worry. When you feel bad, you don’t have the time and patience to wade through simplistic pep talks, unrealistic success stories, needless horror stories, or long-winded and obscure discussions of theory. Therefore, I have made this CBT course as clear and as brief as possible.
