Don’t try to impress someone by changing your actual personality. People will judge how you provide or feed their needs. Everyone has different perceptions of you in their minds according to their needs or dealings. So, it’s foolish to act in a way that people will like. Many of them will still dislike you because they have their own standards for judging people. You have to accept that no one in this world knows the real version of you. We adapt according to changes in situations or our emotions.

5. Live in moment:

We have no control on our past or future. So, what’s the point of overthinking. Stop creating fantasies in your mind that feed your unrealistic thoughts or makes you happy. Be realistic and think of present moments that you are living. Find ways to make yourself happy. Problems only get worse when you allow them to get worse by overthinking. Everyone in this world has problems, how we deal those problems- it only creates difference. So, find the solution of problems and stop overthinking about problems.

6. Ask for help:

Humans are the social animals. We are naturally made dependent on each-other. Thinking of, you can conquer the world is false. Ask for help. Don’t be afraid to ask. Do you know how much weight this sentence carries? Can you help me please! Asking for help is symbol of courageous and strong people not of cowards. So, in any situation you are suffering with, discuss it with your friends and ask for help if necessary.

We mostly overthink when we are tired or at low potential state. So, next time your mind is about to start overthinking just go to bed, take a nap, or do exercise. Meditation or yoga helps in releasing stress. Take time from your daily routine and start exercising. Make it a habit. Go out for a walk, watch sunset, spend time with friends and family helps is releasing stress and reduce overthinking.

8.Courage to be disliked:

Everyone has their own standards to judge. So, it’s not worth it to make yourself sad by overthinking that they don’t like me. Their choices and opinions doesn’t have to define you. You are your version. They judge you by their dealings with you. So, you are not what they are thinking about you. Don’t let their words sadden you. You are capable of doing anything. Just do it. Think big and try to do big.

9. Connect yourself with God:

Ask anything and everything from God. You always have his back. Just believe on it:

Things comes to those, Who comes to God

Just get up and focus on your goals. Don’t let them disturb your mental peace.

Nothing in this world is perfect. Everything has its own flaws. Don’t try to be perfect. Build your own version. Never compare yourself with others, You don’t know their story. Don’t try to impress others by changing your actual personality.
