Feeling Good Tip of the Day ~ Stop Overanalyzing Situations that Haven’t Happened

There is a Better Way to Live

The first step to living a stress-free life is to stop overanalyzing imaginary scenarios. It’s easy to spend time in the world of worst-case scenarios. People tend to cultivate this world for one of two reasons. First, because if you know what the worst-case scenario is, then it won’t surprise you when it happens. Second, if you know what the worst-case scenario is, then you can do everything in your power to control the universe so the worst case never happens. If that’s really the world you want to cultivate, then become a professional risk assessor. If not, then ask yourself how you are benefiting from continuing to live that way.

    1. Does it make you feel better about yourself and your life?
    2. Does it make you want to leap out of bed in the morning eager to embrace the worst-case scenario?
    3. Does it bring you joy or fulfillment?

If your answer to these three questions is no, then stop it!
