Think but don't overthink
Are you the type of person who thinks far too much about something? Overthinking is a bane for many people, with one's focus on the task or problem at hand going askew.
Whatever we humans do require some thinking, so as to make sure that our decision won't turn out to be bad or harmful to us. We face a situation, analyse it and then take action. Some situations require less thinking whereas some require a deep thinking. Thinking properly and acting accordingly helps us in averting a difficult situation, finding proper goals and ways to achieve it etc. It also keeps our mind relaxed and enables it to focus properly.
But we humans often fail to stay within the boundary and start overthinking, which is very dangerous for us. Instead of focusing on the situation at the table, we begin to overthink about the non-existing situations that may occur if some imaginary situation arises out of the present situation. Here, I want to clarify that I don't think or claim that thinking about possible situations that may arise in future is a wrong thing to do but most of the times we go overboard and overthink. Instead of bringing positive thoughts in mind, we fill it with negative thoughts so much that our head starts to ache and our heart beats at an abnormal pace.
We fail to focus, let alone decide whether we should do or not do something as overthinking steals the limelight. We feel incapable and often stay away from everyone. Not only that, overthinking also gives us stress and may also cause serious illness to us like depression, insomnia, high/low blood pressure etc.
It is rightly said that excess of anything is dangerous. We need to put a limit to everything including, so it does not get strong enough to harm us.
