The one thing that reduced my overthinking (more than anything else...)
A short video for Untethered Mind subscribers
In this video I talk about the one thing that’s helped me most when it comes to overthinking (and the ensuing stress and anxiety this creates).
To learn more about this with my guidance, I recommend my Untethered Mind course, which helps with exactly this. You can learn more here.

I’m a proud endorser of Shortform - Making the world’s best information more accessible.
I know how much good comes out of reading multiple books and taking various ideas and combining them. But many books are long-winded and take a long time to read.
Shortform allows me to filter through the best ideas in a book, so I effectively read an entire book in a single sitting. Now I have several fresh ideas every morning, which has benefitted my writing and business significantly.

Thanks for this.
Do you think the conceptual understanding of this helps?
In my experience, only the observation of thoughts led me to understand I was not my thoughts. Meditation is great for this.
Great video thanks Alex.
It reminded me a little of Eckhart Tolle's videos on You Tube which is a compliment because you have of course your own way of telling us what you sincerely believe but Eckhart does I feel deserve a mention because his message is simply "we need to stay in the present and stop thinking about past upsets etc"
R Prager's videos are also worth watching.
I know you teach more than "positive thinking "but I feel it also perhaps needs to be emphasised that it is of course acceptable and normal to be depressed if something stressful has occurred to someone eg.death,realationship break up, illness,unemployment etc.whereas endemic depression should be cured because it is mind based.Otherwise we can all sound like that awful song "always look on the brighside of life".
Imagine how someone reacts to your video if any of the aforementioned major events had occurred so a qualification as to how we feel should perhaps be added.
I will follow your work closely.
