Goodreads: We’ve all been there: stuck in a cycle of what-ifs, plagued by indecision, paralyzed by the fear of getting it wrong. Nobody wants to live a life of constant overthinking, but it doesn’t feel like something we can choose to stop doing. It feels like something we’re wired to do, something we just can’t escape. But is it?
Anne Bogel’s answer is no. Not only can you overcome negative thought patterns that are repetitive, unhealthy, and unhelpful, you can replace them with positive thought patterns that will bring more peace, joy, and love into your life. In Don’t Overthink It, you’ll find actionable strategies that can make an immediate and lasting difference in how you deal with questions both small–Should I buy these flowers?–and large–What am I doing with my life? More than a book about making good decisions, Don’t Overthink It offers you a framework for making choices you’ll be comfortable with, using an appropriate amount of energy, freeing you to focus on all the other stuff that matters in life.
Ope’s Opinion: I have the physical book on my shelf, but I ended up listening to this one. Anne’s voice was great for this book. She had examples and thoughts to go along with her ideas of making life easier. Her examples helped plant the ideas in my head.
I will go back to this book again, I am sure. I will ask myself the questions at the end of the chapters again and see how far I have come and what still needs to be worked on along the way. It is a work in progress, so it will be fun to see what comes easy and what I will be going back to again and again.
Thank you, Kristin of Kritters Ramblings for buying this book for me. We share many different books, it is always fun to have my book world opened a little wider.
