Intrusive Thoughts and Overthinking: The Skill of Cognitive Defusion 20/30

Whether you’re a chronic overthinker or need to make a tough decision, you’ve probably had sleepless nights when your brain just won’t turn off. It happens to all of us at some point in our lives – we all experience events that cause us worry or stress. While it’s human nature to think things through when making a decision or evaluating a situation, it becomes overthinking when you can’t get out of your own head. 
The classic overthinking definition is, “to think about something too much or for too long.” So when does thinking become overthinking? It’s when you can’t seem to turn your concerns off. It’s when you think so much, you become paralyzed – unable to actually make a decision or take any action. And it’s never good for you.
