Women Who Think Too Much: How to break free of over-thinking and reclaim your life
Author(s): Susan Nolen-Hoeksema
It's no surprise that our fast-paced, overly self-analytical culture is pushing many people-especially women-to spend countless hours thinking about negative ideas, feelings, and experiences. Renowned psychologist Dr. Susan Nolen-Hoeksema calls this overthinking, and her groundbreaking research shows that an increasing number of women-more than half of those in her extensive study-are doing it too much and too often, hindering their ability to lead a satisfying life. Overthinking can be anything from fretting about the big questions such as "What am I doing with my life?" to losing sleep over a friend's innocent comment. It is causing many women to end up sad, anxious, or seriously depressed, and Nolen-Hoeksema challenges the assumption-heralded by so many pop-psychology pundits of the last several decades-that constantly expressing and analyzing our emotions is a good thing.
In Women Who Think Too Much, Nolen-Hoeksema shows us what causes so many women to be overthinkers and provides concrete strategies that can be used to escape these negative thoughts, move to higher ground, and live more productively.Women Who Think Too Muchwill change lives and is destined to become a self-help classic.
âThe question of whether Nolen-Hoeksema is onto something was slam-dunked by the âI know exactly what she meansâ reactions of women who caught sight of the title.â â"The Washington Post" âA must read for any woman who has ever felt stuck in her life, and any man who has been confused by why the women they love get so âcaught up thinkingâ they canât enjoy life. Nolen-Hoeksema offers practical methods to self-diagnose and pathways toward greater emotional freedom.â âWilliam S. Pollack, Ph.D., author of Real Boys, Assistant Clinical Professor, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard University
