Synopsis: Why can we not quit worrying and ruminating? Even though we want to quit ruminating, we spend a considerable amount of time doing it, days as well as sleepless nights. All in all, we can spend months and years of our lives ruminating and brooding, even though it only makes us feel worse. Why did I say that? Why did I not get that job? Why did he get a bigger raise than me? Don't they like me? Kind advice from friends, and even from therapists, often contributes to making ruminations worse, rather than decreasing them. For instance, to use distraction in order to stop rumination can be relieving in the moment but is no cure.
For lasting change, you have to teach your brain to stop producing discomforting thoughts. That is "Quit Ruminating and Brooding: How Ruminating and Worry Work and What to Do to Overcome Them" by Olle Wadstrom is about as he explains why we ruminate, what drives ruminations, and why they are so hard to stop.
