Description Description Learn to identify and stop the 10 types of overthinking with this life-changing workbook filled with more than 100 unique writing prompts and exercises, plus inspirational quotes.

If you’ve ever lain awake at night, feeling as if your thoughts were on a mental loop that you were unable to stop, then overthinking has affected your sleep. Your mind wants to be active, 24/7, and overthinking is one of the brain’s toxic ways of doing so. Without productive sleep, your health may start to suffer with any or all of the following:
  • Increased risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes
  • Increased levels of stress, depression, and anxiety
  • Decreased concentration and sex drive
  • Memory issues and mood changes
  • Poor balance, weight gain, and a weakened immune system
To help guide your brain to more healthful, productive, and calm ways of thinking—and getting some rest—Tina Tessina, PhD, applies more than 45 years’ counseling experience in Stop Overthinking. Using the same approach and “homework” Dr. Tessina uses with her clients, each chapter covers one type or cause of overthinking:
  • Worry and anxiety
  • Perseverance
  • Perfectionism
  • Obsessive thinking
  • Avoidance
  • People pleasing
  • Self-sabotage
  • Resolving the origins of overthinking
  • Unlearning learned behavior
  • Overthinking your overthinking

Within each chapter are 10 steps, in the form of writing prompts and exercises, that will help you tackle whatever type of overthinking is causing your mind to run on autopilot. Designed to help you manage your thoughts and your mind in a new way, they will convert your spiraling thought habits into productive, healthy thinking—which will ultimately improve your sleep and well-being; reduce stress, worry, and anxiety; and help you to become focused and accomplish your goals.

Don’t let those racing thoughts keep you up, preoccupy you, or distract you any longer. Put an end to them today!
