Staff Reviews

This is Anne Bogel’s (of Modern Mrs Darcy fame) third book. If the title seems like it could be for you, you should add it to your TBR (to be read) list. Anne offers a framework for easier decision-making and her insights are a beautiful mix of practical and personal. I loved it!

"We can be creators of justice, love, joy, compassion, and peace. But when we take a look at the world around us, it's clear these things don't just happen; we have to think about them - and then act on those thoughts. We need to ask ourselves important questions, such as What kind of person do I want to be? What kind of world do I want to live in? How can I - in my own small way - make that happen? 

— From Andrea


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.
