About The Episode

Are you a chronic overthinker? All of us are guilty of overthinking. Most of us have a friend who says, “Damn, man. You think too much,” or maybe, we are that friend for many people. So, we decided to ask the same thing.

During this episode, we talk about our individual experiences with thinking about things and then thinking about thinking. We try to answer how we define what “over” is for all three of us. We also share what works for us, what has worked for us in the past, things and tools we use to cut our thought from going into that spiral.

We think you’ll like this episode. If you don’t, we’ll keep thinking about it, going in circles, wondering what happened.
