When I say brooding I’m talking about obsessing on how lousy some event or thing is for an extended period of time.
Like any addiction, if encouraged, it can ultimately ruin you. If you gradually cure yourself of it, your life will take a huge turn for the better.
The hazard about brooding is that it can grow on you, by which I mean you can end up spending increasing amounts of time sitting and obsessing. Again, like a classical addiction, it can lead to a point where it prevents you from performing routine daily activities like eating, sleeping or working. If it gets this bad, doctors are likely to declare you have clinical depression.
So how do you get out of the brooding habit?
- Catch yourself brooding
- Have at least four alternate trains of thought that you can jump onto. Here are some examples:
- Think of the various things you have to do during the rest of the day and plan them
- Think of an upcoming professional or family event and of how you can make a useful contribution to it
- Think of a way in which you can help someone you care about
- Think about the best place to go for a walk
- Think about simple ways in which you can improve the inside of your home
- Jump onto one of them and dwell on it for about a minute
- Soon after that engage yourself in a task. This could even be related to one of the trains of thought mentioned earlier
- Practice is key! The important thing is to continually hammer your brooding habit with this method until you get out of it altogether.
Like all the methods I have described on this website, this is one I have employed myself (albeit many moons ago) with resounding success. It took a little while, but proved a powerful, rapid solution.
If you’re into brooding, Try it out NOW, rid yourself of the ruinous habit and make your life more fun!
