Do you find yourself distracted and stuck in cycles of compulsive thinking?
Sometimes, the thoughts are about your past failures and regrets.
You over-analyze past situations and think “I should have said this” or “I shouldn’t have done that.”
Often, these thoughts create guilt, shame, and regret which bring your mood down.
At other times, you obsess about what might happen in the future.
If you have an upcoming presentation, you fantasize about the million ways that it could go wrong.
You worry that people will not like your presentation or that you will do something embarrassing.
This obsession with the future creates a lot of fear and anxiety which keep you stuck in analysis paralysis.
Even when you know that you can’t change the past or predict the future, it seems impossible for you to control where your attention goes.
You feel constantly stressed, anxious and unhappy.
Yet, you get a sense that your real life is passing you by every day.
You know that you could be happier and more fulfilled if only you could stay focused on the present moment.
