In this article I’d like to share 11 habits that can help you  to become a simpler and smarter thinker and to live a happier and less fearful life.

1.See things in a wider perspective:   

It is very easy to fall in the trap of the over thinking .If you are willing to get out of it , you have to first acknowledge that there is something that is wrong in you.

That is nothing but over thinking. think about the issue or a problem in  a wider sense.

This may takes couple of minutes or days or weeks ..

but question yourself that , whether the present issue matters in the future,. may be weeks or years

If this is found to less to bother your mind , mind that !

This should not come in the way of your peace.

2. Don’t think that can go wrong:

Staying positive is the best remedy for  mental issues like the over thinking. Once you think that your mind is wondering into the negative direction.

Stop!! remind yourself that your mind is playing tricks on you.

Spiral yourself and think that every thing will go right and will be done in a perfect way.

In this way you can make your mind free and go ahead in a positive way

The end result would also be positive once you focus on positively.

3.Divert yourself into happiness:

Many simple ways can divert you away from the over thing or negativity. you can join into various activities like the swimming, dancing, sports of any kind.

This helps you to get your mind busy into the activity there by not letting your mind to stop to over think.

Keeping busy our self can shut down the path towards the over analysis.This is one of the best way get rid of overthinking.

4. Stop thinking about perfection:

If you continuously think about perfection than that would be an unrealistic way to draw things into perfection.

This only makes you stress and get more nervous about things around you.

When we get thought of something is not being perfect into your mind.

Think that this could be one of the stupid ways to go into something deep and thereby wasting your time and energy.

5.Stop thinking that everything is a failure:

Some times it is not possible for any one to get there goals done. this is an universal law

It doesn’t mean that once you are fail, you will be failing always in very thing you are doing.

The biggest fear is the fear of failure which can ultimately draw you into the failure. This sort of negative over thinking about some thing that you have missed once can lead into some thing that you don’t want to have in future.

6.Keep a stop watch to yourself:

Once you think that you are over thinking and falling into negativity. stop yourself for 5 minutes!!

Give yourself this time period to evaluate yourself , analyse the issue, and then react.

Once you feel that the issue is quite disturbing than write your feelings in a paper and throw the paper once it is completed

In this way you mind can be reset into better mood away from the over thinking.

7.Don’t worry to much about future:

Spending too much on rethinking about how the future can be is one of the foolish things that one can do

No one can predict the future, and no one can change what that is about to happen

So thinking that you will get the negative side in the future can lead your future into the negative side.

Think that everything will be done in a good desirable way, your positive attitude will draw good things into your life.

8. Accept the best of you:

Over thinking comes when you are thinking low about yourself.

Keep your effort in something you want to have but not every time the result would be alike.

Overthinking after a failure can lead your energy levels down and stop thinking about your next task which can be a success that you are waiting for.

Failure doesn’t define you always nor success. These are part of daily going. If you really want something, think that you will get it…keep your efforts.

If you stay positive then the result will be exactly what you wanted to be most of the times.

9. Be grateful for everything in your life:

Some times you are so overtaken by the overthinking that you forget what you have with yourself.

There are many unfortunates who long for what you have and believe you are lucky one among few.

Did you ever realize how fortune your life is !!

If you do. you will not let any fear stop you.

10. Spend with people who don’t overthink:

Birds of the same feather flock together is a good saying right!
