How To Stop Overthinking

The most important conversations we have each day are the inner ones we have with ourselves. Our mental chatter impacts every aspect of our lives - including our health, performance, relationships and behaviour.

At this special event, psychologist Ethan Kross explores how we can stop overthinking and get our inner voice working in our favour. Instead of trying to silence your chatter, you can educate it, motivate it and reason with it.

Ethan combines his ground-breaking research with real-world examples to explain how you can harness your inner voice, discover more inner peace and live a more satisfying life.

This conversation with Dr Mark Williamson was recorded at an Action for Happiness event on the 14th November 2022.
