It’s not only you but everyone overthink yes, this is the truth.
Now there is a difference between overthinking and self-learning
what is self-learning?
you are thinking about your mistake and learning from it, the mistake is totally fine and you are ok with it, you just learn and move on.
what is overthinking?
in overthinking you just think about that same problem, again and again, and that starts bothering you. thinking about everything you don’t have control over, and then dwelling on how bad you feel about it.
well even after listening to a lot of people not to overthink we do overthink a lot right? there is no perfect way to stop overthinking but there is a way to avoid this issue,
but how will you know that you are an overthinker?
let’s not waste too much time I have written 8 habits of overthinking people.
1. YOU ARE MOSTLY TIRED
do you also feel tired the entire day, if yes then maybe this is because of overthinking.?
You know what, whenever we think too much or we constantly keep thinking about something neurons fire, they absorb extra oxygen and glucose from nearby capillaries. Scientists, therefore, think that when performing a difficult mental task would burn more glucose. This would result in less glucose in the blood for everything else, hence that feeling of exhaustion after a long day of thinking
you can figure this thing out if this is because of overthinking or not but how?
try to avoid overthinking for a week and write all behavior on a planner

2. FACING TROUBLE SLEEPING AT NIGHT
Sleeping at night is peace, we all wait for a peaceful sleep at night after working 24/7 right? but what if you could not sleep at night after so much hard work?

you know what non confident people do face a lot of overthinking cause they don’t interact with a lot of people that mean they are introverted and don’t usually talk too many people
and hence when they are not talking to many people they just keep talking to themself in their minds.
