Re: ThinkingI have spent many hours in bed thinking about problems and situations, trying to come up with answers and fixes, it's not good. I have also spent many times on a lilo* thinking about members of the opposite sex, which was bloody brilliant.
Re: ThinkingAbsolutely. Over thinking can be a curse. Especially when you are trying to get to sleep. We live with a habitual over thinker. My son. Ironically it can also be counterproductive to the formulation and application of ideas. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is useful to combat over thinking and helps you organise your thought patterns so they serve you rather than you being a slave to them. It's not a cure all but it is a good start. It's a bit like WD40 for the brain.
Re: ThinkingI allow myself two hours for thinking about an issue.
