Why are so many people drawn to conspiracy theories in times of crisis?
Verified by Psychology Today
I clearly have rumination issues and I have a tendency to brew over negative events that may happen and start replaying and evaluating events that happen on a daily basis. For example, having a brief conversation with a colleague may be followed with - did I offend them? What was that strange look they gave? Am I boring? I should have said X,y,z instead etc.
I find your tips useful, but I was wondering if there is any rumination workbook or self help resources you could refer me to to best tackle this issue. I am also particularly interested in any resources you know of that can reduce the strength of bad memories re-entering my concious because I do ruminate on these, too.
