)) Can You S.E.E? ((
I am talking about a simple (but not necessarily easy) model for moving out of overthinking - that could easily apply to other things you feel stuck with but because my focus is on supporting overthinkers into clear, calm, focused, connected, un-overwhelming action, thats what I talk about
Simple because if we are up in our heads a lot we don't need more complicated theories, more analysis or more intellect.
We can not think our way out of overthinking
The model goes like this...
S - Support
E - Explore
E - Express
Step 1 is Support.
Internal Support for Our Nervous System
We can not stop overthinking if our nervous system is rattled, over-activated or on hyper alert. In fact our overthinking may be a result of an over active nervous system.
When our nervous system is over-activated we fall into self doubt, comparison, perfectionism, procrastination, distraction, overwhelm NONE of WHIICH feels good.
Step 1 is Support.
External Support to hold us while we practice something else.
This might be support from others who are like us, support from a teacher/guide, support from a therapist, support from friends, family, your dog/cat.
Emerging from overthinking requires support.
And it is an ESSENTIAL before we can move into:
Step 2 - Explore (our options)
Step 3 - Express (ourselves in action, choice, words, yes, no, bringing our hidden parts into our consciousness and into the world so we don't waste energy hiding any more)
More of steps 2 and 3 in coming posts.
A free live demonstration
