 How to Quit Overthinking10/7/15Campus Center 103/104Instructor: Rachel Simmons
* This workshop does not require registration - just show up!
Time: 4:00 pm - 5:15 pm

Do you replay your missteps in your head at night, thinking endlessly about what you could have done differently? Do you perseverate about your problems, focusing more on the “what if” and “why” instead of how to solve them? “Overthinking” can be exhausting. Research shows it disproportionately affects women and girls, and can lead to anxiety, depression, and loss of motivation. At this workshop, learn why we overthink and how to stop, so you can move on, free your mind and focus on more productive activities.

“It is really nice to actually see the Q-tutors and get myself into the QLC space.”

“I didn’t know there was GRE review in the center.”

“I liked getting ice cream!”
