How I Stopped Ruminating

What is ruminating, why do we do it and how do we stop? In this video, I want to take some time to answer these questions while also providing some insights on how I began to break the dysempowering habit of ruminating.

Simply put, ruminating is a chronic habit of repeating the same thought subject in your mind, over and over again in cycles, with little fruit and peace. Even though this habit is unhealthy and unfruitful, so many still seem to fall into it.

I ruminated as a way of life–spent many years “spinning,” examining, anlayzing, assessing and debating within myself all day long. I was left in chronic loops and assessing questions I did not need to answer.

Until I discovered there was a better way to live.

The truth is, if you ruminate, little breakthrough is going to be experienced unless you realize that the habit is unhealthy and not what God designed you for. But it may help to learn why you worry.

Some feed ruminating as their daily pattern of worry. They have become worry warts and cannot see themselves living without worry. Some become obsessive compulsive, where ruminating actually becomes their compulsion–their way of trying to find peace and make things “just right.”

But ruminating is a trap. In this video I want to show you why we ruminate and ten things that helped me break free from its clutches.
