Regret any past event; why did I do that! It is like to do so without doing or reckon with an earlier decision can still be considered over-anxiety or over-anxiety in a word? This extra thought hurts the body.
According to a study by the University of Michigan, about 63 percent of people between 25 and 35 do this. For those aged 45 to 55, that number dropped to 52 percent.
Interestingly, thinking that they are doing good themselves by wandering around in the past, the opposite happened.
David Spiegel, director of the Center for Stress and Health at Stanford Health Care, said in a report published on a health website that the loss of worrying about a problem often outweighs the damage caused due to problem itself. Excessive thinking has various effects on the body and mind. Here are some of them:
The day goes by thinking, the work is not done
There are many types; it’s hard to say. But the problem is, it becomes challenging to make a decision then. Rajita Sinha, director of the Yale Stress Center, said one has to be stuck with any possible outcome that may never happen in reality. And this is where people get stuck, so nothing is done. If you do not take action, you will not fail, but you will not succeed. At this time, the risk of making a wrong decision increases because you were too engrossed in choosing one of the many possible steps.
Laura Price, an assistant professor in the Department of Psychology at NYU Langon Health, said that a person’s senses become dull due to excessive thinking and a decision that results; Which may have been seemingly excellent but destructive.
Decline of creativity
When some part of the brain is inactive, human creativity increases; when preoccupied with excessive thoughts, the brain rusts, and creative ideas are gradually lost. It’s just that when you think about something, new ways come out. But in most cases, extra worries or anxieties can bind you mentally. Researchers at Stanford University asked some participants to draw some difficult-easy pictures while connected to an MRI device. The harder it is to remove, the more participants have to think and the less their creativity in the drawing.
Effects on eating habits
The effect varies from person to person. Someone stops eating out of anxiety; someone becomes uncontrollable again. Eating makes you a little distracted from anxiety; Which is soothing. And at this time people choose the most delicious but unhealthy food. Foods rich in harmful ingredients like processed fats, sugars, etc., may be known as ‘comfort food’ for this reason.
It is normal not to sleep if the thoughts of the state revolve in your head. The body must reduce heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing speed must reduce for sleeping. But this will not happen if a storm of thoughts blows in the head. As a result, you can not sleep. And if you do not get enough sleep to lose the desire to work the next day, exercise will reduce. All health aspects of life will continue to be affected.
Thoughts or worries – in both cases, the brain is overwhelmed; the cost is energy.
Laura Price says there is no physical exertion, but spending a day with a storm of thoughts in the head will make people tired quickly.
According to Spiegel, we increase our stress by worrying too much, producing the hormone ‘cortisol.’ The result is getting tired, but the results are not coming. It’s like driving in the wrong gear, the engine is working at full speed, but the car is not getting much speed.
