Contain Your Brain for Rumination
Rumination is like a broken record of negative thoughts that just keeps playing over & over again in your mind.
You might be replaying a chat gone wrong with a friend or an embarrassing moment from years ago.
Either way, you’re probably so caught up in your thoughts that you end up spinning your wheels without actually making progress towards a solution (maybe because there isn’t one…).
Well let’s stop playing that old record & break free from this draining pattern of thinking that is taking up all your time & energy.
Contain Your Brain can help! Train your mind to worry for a set amount of time when it is convenient for you. In your worry time, learn to solve, accept & reflect your way to ruminating less so you can be more present & focused on the things that matter most.
