Overthinking taking a toll on your life?

Overthinking taking a toll on your life? Time to get Rid of it

Thinking is the cornerstone of prudence, pragmatism and progress. After all, all those common and significant events in our personal life are set in motion by a thought originating in a healthy, thinking brain. While thinking is important to our existence, over thinking can put it into peril. Overthinking, as the name indicates, is a chronic condition where the individual knowingly or unknowingly engrosses his mind too deeply into anything and everything. Here, the “what ifs,” “should haves” and “what’s next” keep the mind preoccupied for the most part, robbing the individual of time and inclination for constructive, relaxing thoughts.

Overthinking resembles a Black Hole in all its intensity and catastrophe. Like the heavenly body, over thinking too is a bottomless pit that lurks in the dark to entice gullible minds into a likely disorientation and destruction. The gravity of obsessive thinking is way too strong, if not inescapable, for most humans, leaving them to lead an inconsistent, unstable life burdened with several self-made challenges. The individual often seeks answers to insignificant questions and creates real and unreal situations that are better left unanalyzed. This negative thinking pattern is continuous, repeating itself moment-by-moment, hour-by-hour and day-by-day.

How detrimental is over worrying:

The effects of over worrying cannot be measured but only felt. In fact, overthinking is a front for all negative emotions – from fear to rage to distrust and more. The negative emotions override decisions, interfere with clear thinking and undermine problem- solving capabilities. If left unattended, they often contribute to the multiple psychological disorders, including depression, anxiety, delineation from reality and even suicidal tendencies in extreme cases. The physical health is also impaired, as the over thinker often ends up with insomnia, headaches, fatigue, muscle stiffness and several other conditions requiring elaborate medical intervention.

Let’s consider a study by Professor Susan Nolen, a former Chairperson of the University of Michigan’s Department of Psychology, to put everything in perspective.

  • The report brings to fore the universality of the phenomena, as it is prevalent across all ends of the socio-economic scale, cultures, age groups, genders, and geographies.
  • Although no one is immune to over worrying, the trend is more prominent among women with 57% of them being affected vis-à-vis 43% of males.
  • About 73% of young adults, belonging to the 25-35 years age group, are prone to this epidemic while the percentage is 52 for 45-55 year olds. Surprisingly, the percentage plummets to 20 per cent in the 65-75 years age group.
  • The report makes no bones about how over thinkers often fall prey to indulgent ways, exposing themselves to drugs, alcohol and increased food intake.

How to keep the issue at bay :

The exact reasons for obsessive thinking are not available with some attributing it to genes while the rest to socio-economic circumstances. However, there are effective strategies to counter the condition, few of which are discussed below. The idea is to guide your way to wellness.

  • Identify the root cause: Overthinking is an individualized issue, as each person has his/her own set of triggers. As such, the recovery strategy has to be individualised. Simply put, you need to identify factors that kick-start the chain of thoughts in your mind. Your triggers can be an embarrassing event or unfriendly conversation in the recent past or a disaster scenario that you anticipate in future. Once identified, analyze them with a fresh perspective and problem-solving mindset, which will help you develop a suitable response to the disorder. However, stay away from over analysis.
  • Inculcate positivity: Overthinkers are often troubled by the fear of the unknown, leading to cognitive distortion. In this condition, the mind tends to exaggerate future challenges to the point of invincibility, leaving the over thinker low on confidence and self-esteem. The way out of this devastating situation is to cultivate positivity. You need to count your blessings, revisit your past successes and restore faith in your abilities. Thoughtful affirmations or chants can also help you achieve the cognitive restructuring.
  • Meditate: Meditation comes with a number of benefits, providing you with a spiritual leverage, mental and emotional stability and stress release. A streamlined thought process is an added advantage, allowing you to exercise greater control over the nature, duration and intensity of your thoughts. The benefits are multiplied when meditation is used in conjunction with various forms of Yoga, including Pranayama.
  • Mindfulness: Mindfulness is a proven hedge and response against over worrying. It is a state of mind where you are in the know of the happenings around you and responds to them practically. While overthinking takes you away from reality, mindfulness keeps you firmly rooted in the present moment, making them antitheses of each other.
  • Physical activity: When you engage in any physical activity, your thought process is diluted and diverted, providing an instant relief from the horrors of obsessive thinking. Just take time from your tight schedules for any light sport – be it tennis, cycling or badminton – and see for yourself how overthinking gradually minimises. Engaging in learning a new sport or any other physical activity is also recommended.

Energy healing:

As per the popular perception, the analogy between Black Hole and Overthinking holds true in recovery as well. Once you cross the “Event Horizon” of obsessive thinking, returning back may not be an option, irrespective of how religiously the above- mentioned strategies are followed. In such a grim scenario, victims need a helping hand that can make the difference. Energy healing is that helping hand capable of transforming lives efficiently, naturally and safely. The therapeutic science is based on the concept of harnessing energy, read life force, for health and spiritual gains. It is
basically a multi-modality approach consisting of ancient practices, such as, but not limited to, Reflexology, Chakra Healing, Reiki, Acupuncture and Qigong.

Besides correcting the obsessive thinking disorder, Energy Healing is said to ensure recovery from serious conditions, including cancers, injuries and diabetics among others. Aesthetic, emotional and mental benefits also come by default with this therapeutic approach.

We changed their lives and here they send us reasons to smile !
Priceless words of honour.

I have known Dr Chandni for only 6 months. Yet today I consider her part of my family and my being. When I met her, I was exhausted with life and with myself. Not only did her session uplift & transform my physical body but I was grounded like I havent been in 8 years. Highly knowledgeable, able to answer your deepest questions, full of light and exuberance, I havent seen any energy healing so significant and long lasting. Im privileged to receive wellness from her and I know that Im never alone. My association with her is for life and her specialness is above the heavens for me.

I was part of the session with Dr. Chandni Tugnait and so many friends asked me about my experience. The following analogy reflects some parts of the experience -The best of Buddhas disciple gave their quantifiable findings but when it came to Andanda, his closest one, he had tears in his eyes and responded in a single sentence – “I don’t know”.Buddha responded emotively, you have me in you. One has to experience it to believe in the healing process in totality.
Thanks a lot for your contribution Chandni

At times i wonder where does she keep it all. Such compassion – non judgmental, ever accessible, invaluable. It’s got to be a fountain within her that flows incessantly for the wary soul. No matter what your wound is, the magical waters of this fountain can cure all. And it was magic that got me to this fountain. For I had neither met her nor known her, at-least not in this lifetime! The first time i spoke to her, her compassion cut through my dense energy.

It was indeed a great honor for me to be trained by Ms. Chandni on my first visit to India. Not only did she teach us techniques on improving our proficiency in the English Language but also helped us to be able to communicate effectively with people from different cultures. The sessions with Ms. Chandni are always fun & informative. Even after hours of training with her, there is no sign of tiredness or lethargy. I extend my gratitude to you for teaching us how to be BETTER THAN THE BEST!!

Robbi Adhilni

Every teacher educates but only a few enlighten and Chandni ma’am is one of them. Besides having outstanding teaching methods, she is also very skilful and enthusiastic. And the best part is she never settles for what she and her students have accomplished. I owe a lot to her in terms of motivation, enlightenment and most importantly for making me a good human being. Her words of motivation “YOU ARE BETTER THAN THE BEST” always are a major source of ENCOURAGEMENT..

Ms. Chandni is a fine young lady who simply touched my heart during my visit to India. Although she is my daughter’s age but the ease with which she handled our group of 40 odd people from different countries and different cultures, left me spellbound. English was never a problem for me but this young girl, who I proudly call my teacher, taught me some very interesting things. I wish you the best of luck in everything that you do. Smile as often as you can. May the Lord bless you!

I’m really glad I attended the Serenity Surrender Basic Workshop with Chandni Ma’am. I’ll be indebted to you all my life for showing me the path of self empowerment. I had put myself in the gentle and capable hands of my guide and mentor ‘Chandni Tugnait Sharma’ and found that my opinion of myself, and my beliefs in the cycles of karma changed forever. The sessions and workshops have helped me develop my full potential, unlock hidden talents, and create more compassion and love for myself and others. Love You Ma’am.

I shall be eternally grateful to my sister-in-law for helping me uncover the fantastic laws of Universe and exposing me to the world of great mysticity and grandeur. Nothing seems impossible for me now. I get all that I desire and much more. One workshop changed so much for me. I, now, truly believe that nothing is unachievable in this abundant Universe.
