Top 7 Japanese Strategies to Halt Overthinking

We live in a day and age when we all feel like we’re constantly running against time, thanks to the fast-paced culture and never-ending to-do lists. We hardly get time to think things over, sit quietly and enjoy a few moments of silence. If there’s one thing most of us struggle with it’s overthinking. Although some of us try not to think too much about things, we still can’t avoid focusing on disturbing thoughts more and more. If you’re looking for some relief, there are 7 Japanese techniques that can really help you calm down and relax. They are listed below and the last one is especially fun and interesting.

Shoganai

It simply means practicing acceptance of the things that are not under your control. There’s no point wasting time on things you have no control over, right? Instead you should always wait for the things which are under your control. This is a visionary outlook that if you are able to develop, you will be better able to overcome life’s struggles.

shirin-yoku

Whenever you feel tired from the fast-paced culture, you feel like taking some rest. Don’t we all joke about how we want to go north to the lap of the Himalayas and spend time in peace? This technique suggests that the best way to avoid excessive thinking is to keep greenery around you in the lap of nature, where you can feel comfortable. This will help in calming your mind.

Nenbutsu

This is a simple and powerful way to take your mind off the things that are making you overthink. It suggests that you repeat a sacred phrase that you believe in or simply chant the Buddha’s name. This way it will also help your mind to concentrate better and find peace. This is a great way to stay calm and conscious of what you are doing and feeling.

Zazen

Zazen is a form of meditation practiced extensively in Zen Buddhism. It helps to calm one’s mind. In mediation, the individual is able to consider his or her thoughts without judgment. A great way to reduce the habit of overthinking, it is very effective.

Gaman

It’s about teaching yourself that you shouldn’t feel discouraged in times of difficulty. The idea is to remain strong and resilient even when life surprises you. The best way to go about it is to focus on taking one step at a time.

Wabi-Sabi

This Japanese technique asks you to accept that things don’t go right all the time and everything in life is momentary. Once you are able to adjust to these two things, you will feel the pressure to achieve perfection diminish. This will help you feel calm and reduce excessive thinking to a great extent.

ikebana

This is an interesting technique and effective too. It suggests that you arrange flowers and place them thoughtfully and with utmost care. When your mind is too busy creating something beautiful, you will notice how quickly your mind will stop focusing on disturbing thoughts.
