Don't Overthink It – ARC Review

Anne Bogel’s latest book, Don’t Overthink It, is not on shelves until March 3rd but as a super-fan of the author, I couldn’t wait that long.  I was thrilled that an ARC (Advanced Reader’s Copy) became available to me with my pre-order and I am excited to share a review. 

Overthinker was not a characteristic I would use to describe myself.  I have my moments where ‘analysis paralysis’ has taken me hostage for a bit but overall, I can usually make decisions pretty easily.  That being said, I have a history of sweating the small stuff as they say, especially since becoming a mom.  Time is more limited now and, in a way, more precious.  I can’t waste time struggling with uncertainty.  Additionally, my choices don’t just affect me anymore, so I want to be sure I make the right one.  I really enjoyed the advice in the book and I’m excited to start putting the strategies into practice in my everyday life. 

Fans of Anne’s website ‘Modern Mrs. Darcy’ and podcast ‘What Should I Read Next?’ will immediately recognize her gentle style and adorable charm.  Her anecdotes are so relatable that all readers will be nodding their heads along with the examples she gives of wasting time and energy agonizing over decisions that could be quick or getting caught up in life clutter that makes simple thought process more challenging than it needs to be.  Her strategies and ideas for combating some overthinking habits seem small and simple but with practice can make a big difference. 

I am enthusiastically recommending this book to anyone who might gain from adding a little space to their lives and can’t wait to gift it to a few people in my life who I know will benefit from it.   

Don’t Overthink It is on sale March 3, 2020 and is available for pre-order on Amazon.com or your local independent bookstore.
