From one of the nation's preeminent experts in the study of women and emotion, a breakthrough new book based on the author's award-winning research
It's not a surprise that our fast-paced, overly analytical culture is pushing people--especially women--to spend countless hours thinking about negative ideas, feelings, and experiences. Renowned psychologist Dr. Susan Nolen-Hoeksema calls this "overthinking." Her groundbreaking research shows that an increasing number of women--more than half of those in her extensive study--are doing it too much and too often, hindering their ability to lead a satisfying life. Overthinking can be anything from fretting about big questions such as "What am I doing with my life?" to losing sleep over a friend's innocent comment. It is causing women to feel sad, anxious, or seriously depressed, and she challenges the assumption that constantly expressing and analyzing our emotions is a good thing.
In "Women Who Think Too Much," Nolen-Hoeksema provides concrete strategies that can be used to escape these negative thoughts, move to higher ground, and avoid future traps.
