Books from the Backlog - Don't Overthink It


Today I'm linking up with Carole from Carole's Random Life of Books for Books from the Backlog.  I really enjoy the chance to feature a book that's been hiding in the piles of books for far too long!


Goodreads:  Don't Overthink It: Make Easier Decisions, Stop Second Guessing, and Bring More Joy to Your Life by Anne Bogel

Blurb:  We've all been there: stuck in a cycle of what-ifs, plagued by indecision, paralyzed by the fear of getting it wrong. Nobody wants to live a life of constant overthinking, but it doesn't feel like something we can choose to stop doing. It feels like something we're wired to do, something we just can't escape. But is it?
Anne Bogel's answer is no. Not only can you overcome negative thought patterns that are repetitive, unhealthy, and unhelpful, you can replace them with positive thought patterns that will bring more peace, joy, and love into your life. In Don't Overthink It, you'll find actionable strategies that can make an immediate and lasting difference in how you deal with questions both small--Should I buy these flowers?--and large--What am I doing with my life? More than a book about making good decisions, Don't Overthink It offers you a framework for making choices you'll be comfortable with, using an appropriate amount of energy, freeing you to focus on all the other stuff that matters in life.

Why It Needs to Come Off the Shelf:  I'm definitely an overthinker but this is a fairly short read that's been sitting on my shelf for far too long.  It seems like an easy one to get off the shelf and one where I could pick up some valuable tips.

  1. It sounds like a useful book - I personally think that often when we get that paralysed, it's because we're fighting an internal war where 'ought to' is fighting with 'want to'. I'll be interested to see what you make of the book:)).
