Goodreads:  We've all been there: stuck in a cycle of what-ifs, plagued by indecision, paralyzed by the fear of getting it wrong. Nobody wants to live a life of constant overthinking, but it doesn't feel like something we can choose to stop doing. It feels like something we're wired to do, something we just can't escape. But is it?

Anne Bogel's answer is no. Not only can you overcome negative thought patterns that are repetitive, unhealthy, and unhelpful, you can replace them with positive thought patterns that will bring more peace, joy, and love into your life. In Don't Overthink It, you'll find actionable strategies that can make an immediate and lasting difference in how you deal with questions both small--Should I buy these flowers?--and large--What am I doing with my life? More than a book about making good decisions, Don't Overthink It offers you a framework for making choices you'll be comfortable with, using an appropriate amount of energy, freeing you to focus on all the other stuff that matters in life.

Kritters Thoughts:  A non fiction book that could be defined as self help, but I would call it life instructional!  This is a genre that I don't typically read, but from a person/author who I love so I thought I would give it a try and I am glad I did.  

Anne Bogel is known to many for her blog or her podcast or both where she helps connect readers with great books.  As a book blogger myself, my goal for my blog is to ramble about books in hopes that readers will connect and find a book that they would like to read.  I have followed her career for a bit, so was excited when she announced a third book and then was greatly intrigued when she started speaking about what it would be about - a vastly different direction from her first two.  

This book focuses on the concept of overthinking and the many different ways in which a person can overthink and then provides tools and skills to help make decision making easier and how to avoid overthinking when it isn't necessary.  I found this book to be very helpful.  The tools were easy to implement quickly and I loved her personal antidotes that made the skills easier to understand.  

This is the perfect gift book for the person in your life who may spend too much time pondering and needs to move more things into action mode.  This is a book that I could see myself dipping back into time after time to remind myself that overthinking can keep you from doing and enjoying life.  

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
