A unique way of learning how to overcome obsessive, anxious and intrusive thoughts, has just been made available in a newly released book entitled: “Quit Ruminating and Brooding: How Ruminating and Worry Work and What to Do to Overcome Them,” by the well known psychologist, Olle Wadström.
A Better Way
With so many people feeling the stress and strain of the hectic, unnatural times we are living in, it is not so unusual for many of us to have obsessive, nervous and invading thoughts. This often means that we are nervous about taking part in ordinary activities such as conversing with an acquaintance, fostering a new relationship, and having to attend a meeting at work when it is necessary to make a speech in front of others. Wadström, who specializes in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBD), clearly and succinctly shows readers a better way to deal with such problems.
He starts off by getting everyone to make an honest evaluation of how anxiety and over contemplation impact them, and once they are mindful of the way their brains are processing these events, he gives them guidance on how they can teach their brains to quit generating uncomfortable thoughts patterns by applying science-backed, proven behavioral therapy methods.
Saying Goodbye to Worry and Concern
“Wadström’s book likens intrusive thinking to a tennis match between discomforting and comforting thoughts, in which the pleasant thoughts people tend to summon when faced with a worry or concern reinforce the angst they are experiencing and cause it to return and multiply”.
In essence, “Quit Ruminating and Brooding” confronts the stress and strain that readers go through when they try to resolve the unsolvable, or understand the incomprehensible. And while: “ruminating might provide some instant ease, [it is] quite the opposite of what one thinks, those comforting thoughts fuel one’s brain to produce even more and worse discomforting thoughts”.
Wadström states that: “Ultimately, my hope is to inform the ordinary person as well as psychologists, therapists and other mental health clinicians that there is a method to train the brain to be less inclined to produce discomforting thoughts, which are often the key catalyst to worry and rumination”.
Readers will find that this book is an uplifting, pleasant, easy to understand read. And on top of this, there are plenty of engaging, simple to follow, illustrations, which are an excellent way to learn. The new methods which are presented, are ideal for those who experience remorse, regret and worry, when it is not objectively applicable, whether it is in connection with relationships, parenting, career growth, health, or more trivial things, for example: the way we are regarded by others when we are in social settings.
