The thumb thing taught me that thinking is not the cure for overthinking.

It taught me that overthinking is counterproductive.

Overthinking leads to an anxious mind, and anxious minds don’t think well.

It taught me that thinking about the wrong things can be dangerous.

Thinking about things that thinking can’t change will always lead to overthinking.

Lastly, the thumb thing taught me that I need to notice I’m overthinking before it’s too late.

1. Notice your thoughts.

2. Stop and get out of your head.
