HOW TO STOP OVERTHINKING- with these four steps, you'll be closer to a clearer mind in no time |

Picture this: you’ve just crawled into bed after what seemed like a great day. You turn off the light, close your eyes, and prepare for a peaceful doze into sleep.

And then the overthinking begins.

You obsess over everything you said that day and beat yourself up over everything that you didn't. You replay conversations over and over again in your mind, agonizing over the smallest of details and analyzing all the ways in which you could've been wrongly perceived. You spend hours ruminating on these thoughts, rehashing the past until everything that seemed good at first now becomes nothing more than a place for worry and distress.

Such is the problem of over-thinkers.

While everyone experiences bouts of overthinking every now and then, some of us are stuck in a perpetual cycle of these destructive thoughts. They seep into our minds with every social interaction we make, leaving us in an exhaustive state of anxiety for the days to come. It’s as though we need an off-button to our brains, something that’ll allow us to stop the internal chaos for even just a second.

Even though said magical button does not (unfortunately) exist, I’m here to tell you that with time and determination you can put an end to this constant barrage of thoughts.

Over the past few months, I’ve picked up a routine that I employ whenever I find myself spiraling into the overthinking trap, and it’s helped me a ton. So, in hopes that it’ll help you as well, here are the top things I do to stop overthinking:

11 EASY STEPS TO GO VEGAN AND STICK WITH IT--- with this simple beginner's guide, you'll be on your way to a healthier, more compassionate lifestyle in no time. |

Venturing into the world of veganism can seem like a daunting journey, one filled with strict dietary rules and an uninviting amount of tofu. It can seem especially frightening if you're making the change alone, but don’t worry- I’m here to tell you that the switch to veganism is so much easier (and enjoyable) than you may think. Before diving into the top 11 tips guaranteed to give you success and fulfillment on your vegan journey, there are three important things you should always keep in mind:

  1. No matter what you may hear, veganism is in no way, shape, or form about being perfect. How far you decide to go in this lifestyle is completely up to you- don't let a label or other people become the dictators of your decisions. Whether you become fully vegan, vegetarian, or even just have one meatless day, you are still making a difference.

  1. Go at a pace that feels best to you. Although some people are able to switch to veganism overnight, most of us need more time, and that’s okay. You may choose to start out as a vegetarian and then make the transition into veganism, or maybe you want to take it even slower by just eliminating one food at a time. You know what works best for you, and should never feel pressured to go at a speed that you don’t feel comfortable with.

  1. As your body rids itself of old toxins, hormones, bacteria, and other harmful things found in most all animal-based foods, you might go through a brief detox/withdrawal period. This period is typically short-lived but may cause things like fatigue, headaches, or breakouts. As nutritionist Heather McClees says, “these are all signs that your body is cleaning itself; be patient and wait things out, they do get better! And just remember- detox is temporary, but a positive healthy change can be life-altering.” For more information on this, Click Here.
