a mindfulness practice for overthinking

Here is your Mindfulness goody bag, it’s called Mindfulness for overthinking. This is Day 11 of a 3 week Mindfulness programme I developed to support people during the initial stages of the pandemic. You can read more about this programme here

The intention of this Mindfulness package is to help you to get out of your head and into your breath & body. This is especially good for overthinkers. Did you know that we have over 80,000 thoughts a day, 80% of which are negative and that our mind wanders 47% of the time! The Buddhists call this the “Monkey Mind”, it swings from branch to branch – topic to topic.

In mindfulness we are not trying to control the mind after all the mind is very useful, we are just over subscribed to it. Instead we practice coming to a place of observation and witnessing of the chatter of the mind. In this way we can step outside of it and consequently have a break from it so that over time we can decipher the valuable from the not so valuable thoughts.

During this video and audio mindfulness practice, I talk about the breath and how vital it is in calming down your thoughts. And I also will share with you:  

  • Why the breath is so important in mindfulness (and it might not be the reason you thought!) 
  • A very simple tool for helping you sleep (or get back to sleep) when your thoughts are racing.

In this mindfulness practice I also bring in a little visualisation – great for all you thinkers. Plus its one of my favourites!

You are also getting a PDF download of 3 simple mindfulness tips to use everyday to help you get out of your head and into your body.  

what will this goody bag for you?

Over time and with practice these tips will help you:

  • Calm down your thoughts
  • Sleep better
  • Feel less anxious
  • Get out of your head


To experience the most benefit I would recommend listening to the meditation regularly for 14 days. It has been proven that this will change your brain chemistry and you will experience the benefits of mindfulness (and lots more before then).
