Have you ever found yourself in such scenario? Do you often find yourself thinking back on what someone had said or how they acted?

  • Stop being over-analytical. Don’t dwell on possible double meanings or hidden agendas.

  • Learn to laugh at jokes. Focus on the lighter side of life.

  • Fill your headspace. Listen to feel-good music playlists.
