i am prone to overthinking, and sometimes it feels like both a strength and a weakness. overthinking allows me to plan, to dive deep, and to understand a topic more fully. it also slows me down significantly, almost to the point of paralysis.
sometimes i overthink so much i miss my mouth when i’m eating or drinking.
there are some things in our lives that are worth examining. but oftentimes it helps to just keep our methods simple, and to follow the natural flow of our environment and our bodies. sometimes i am so busy trying to find efficiencies that i become inefficient.
shake it up. take some deep breath. go outside and enjoy yourself. once you free up your brain and “not think” for a while, you can return to your deep dives in a more productive way.
