Free: Recording of Live Ruminating Brain Webinar
Listen to a recording of a live webinar in which Dr. Glover answers questions about the Ruminating Brain. In addition to a brief introduction to the concept of the ruminating brain, he answers questions on all kinds of subjects related to living with a ruminating brain. He also shares some coping and management strategies from the eight-week course described below.
The Ruminating Brain
What is a Ruminating Brain?
A ruminating brain is a washing machine that is constantly agitating in your head. It spins constantly, day and night. 24/7.
Typically, a ruminating brain causes a person’s mind to spin in many of the following ways (check any that apply to you):
Your Ruminating Brain Keeps Your Mind Spinning About the Past:
It rehashes perceived mistakes.
It agonizes over missed opportunities.
It replays failures and fuck-ups.
It dwells on regret about bad choices.
It collects and hangs on to perceived wounds and slights.
It revisits “what onlys” and “only ifs.”
It builds a case for, and constantly reminds you of, your defectiveness and inadequacy.
Your Ruminating Brain Keeps Your Mind Spinning About the Future:
It lives in fear of repeating your same mistakes.
It is dominated by worry, fear, and anxiety.
It convinces you it is gathering information to make significant decisions, but it’s really just spinning.
It keeps you stuck in the paralysis of analysis.
It convinces you that you can’t act until you’ve considered every possible outcome of every possible action.
It constantly rehearses possible conversations and potential scenarios.
It lives in the world of “what if” and can imagine every possible negative outcome of any action or situation.
It assumes there is a perfect way to do everything, and failure is not an option.
Even when things are going well, it’s anticipating the other shoe falling.
It assumes your future will mirror your past.
Your Ruminating Brain Keeps Your Mind Spinning About Your Perceived Inadequacies and Others’ Opinions of You:
It compares you to others in ways that make you feel inferior and inadequate (and occasionally grandiosely superior).
It measures you by its own arbitrary standards and unrealistic expectations.
It remembers every mistake but forgets most successes.
It obsesses over what people might think about you.
It expects perfection in everything you do (and assumes everyone else does, too).
It convinces you that you’re an imposter and fraud and that it’s only a matter of time before you’re found out.
It lives for others’ affirmation and approval but can’t believe or accept them when they come.
It is terrified of failing and looking foolish.
It lives in constant fear of rejection and abandonment.
Obsessing about the past, living in the future, and comparing and measuring the self always results in a sense of worthlessness, failure, fear, and inadequacy. It paralyzes you and prevents you from acting boldly in your own best interest. It keeps you isolated and lonely. It makes you think you have to overcompensate and exceed people’s expectations in order to be loved and liked (and get laid). It blinds you to opportunity and the open doors that surround you. It keeps you living in deprivation rather than abundance.
The Good News
Your mind may convince you that you’re defective and unlovable – but it is wrong!
By practicing mindfulness and applying proven principles of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), you can learn to slow your mind, observe it, challenge its assumptions, redirect it – even laugh at it – and turn your greatest critic into your staunchest ally.
