How to stop overthinking - getting out of the mind and into your body


  • How much is your mind running in circles?

  • How often are you struggling to fall asleep or stay asleep?

  • How much of your day feels like you're just going through the motions until you can collapse?


This aspect of being stressed and overwhelmed shows us that we are in the mind, we are disconnected from our bodies and we're on autopilot.


And the solution to this, you'll be relieved to know, is easier than you think.

If it feels like your mind and emotions are driving the ship, and you want to know how to stop overthinking, coming into your body is key.


So here are some quick tips to help you start that journey of connecting back into your body.

  1. Conscious breathing, so deep breaths if you like. But just consciously notice the inhale and the exhale.

  2. Getting movement into your body, jumping up and down, mindful walking and movement, dancing in your kitchen, or some form of exercise if you have the time. If your mind is really busy, something that almost gives you no choice but to focus on your body is amazing for people with really busy minds, so for example I did aerial hoop, which means I'm suspended in a hoop from the roof - if I don't pay attention and stay in my body, I would fall out of the hoop.

  3. Bringing the thoughts into the physical, out of the mind and onto paper. So writing out those thoughts, you'll be surprised that this really does shrink your problems and stop that mind circling.

There's obviously more, but these are three great ones. Give them a try and see which you love. This is the one you can stick with each time you notice that mind taking the wheel.
