Everything You Think is Wrong Day can be interpreted in a few ways. It may be a day when nothing goes right and everything seems to go wrong the whole day! If this is the case, it also recognizes that these types of days are sometimes inevitable. One shouldn't be dismayed, because these type of days will pass. A perfect example of this is that Everything You Do is Right Day is coming tomorrow!
Everything You Think is Wrong Day can also be a day to acknowledge there are things we don't know, we have imperfections, and we have much to learn. We may not know basic knowledge about certain fields of study or not know specific pieces of information, or we may need to improve our moral outlook or correct blind spots when it comes to being compassionate or understanding of others. But the day can be looked at as an opportunity, not as a reason to be down. We all have the opportunity to fix things and to learn, which will make us better people in the long run.
Spend the day reflecting on things you can improve on, specifically when it comes to your thoughts. What fields of study do you lack basic knowledge in? Perhaps you could join a class or read a book on a topic where you have much to learn. Reflect on your views of others, your values, and your overall disposition. Where can you improve? In what areas would you benefit from a better outlook? Focus your energies on an area where you most think you need to improve. Perhaps you could pick up a self-improvement book to help you on your journey.

Some of you will recognize this as a day to listen to those mean nagging thoughts that drag you down and figure out how to better control them. That is what I'll be doing- listening to my inner voices & telling them on paper why they are full of shit.
Thinking about something in endless circles — is exhausting.
Overthinking can take many forms: endlessly deliberating when making a decision (and then questioning the decision)(Professor), attempting to read minds, trying to predict the future, reading into the smallest of details(me), etc.
People who overthink consistently run commentaries in their heads, criticising and picking apart what they said and did yesterday, terrified that they look bad — and fretting about a terrible future that might await them(me)
‘What ifs’ and ‘shoulds’ dominate their thinking, as if an invisible jury is sitting in judgement on their lives(me). And they also agonise over what to post online because they are deeply concerned about how other people will interpret their posts and updates.
This then is the thinking I need to focus on today!
Have a great day!
