How to Stop Obsessing Over Your Mistakes

It's natural to worry. Indeed, concern is an evolutionary tendency, as learning from your errors does not help you create them again. It's how kids learn not to touch warm stuff–and how our ancestors learned not to pet crocodiles! But when it becomes an obsession to contemplate or worry about your errors, it stops being a instrument for survival and can actually become dangerous. Part of the issue is that our brains tend to use' down time' to handle these errors.

When your mind has nothing else to do, it reflects on the past, and especially on the times from which learning will benefit you. But it's a complex system for your body. People with a tendency to circle around the same error over and over again have a greater risk of eating disorders, depression, and heart disease.

 One way out of this mindset to shake yourself is to offer something else to your mind. Get a change of scenery, or at least a change of' mental landscapes.' Going for a stroll, chatting or stuck in a fresh assignment can all assist to dissipate that voice within.
