Are you a dog with a bone?  Can you re-play an argument, interaction, criticism, comment or  behavior over and over?  Are you constantly second guessing yourself and choosing to live outside the moment?  You, Gorgeous, may be a world class "ruminator" - cue dramatic music.  Fret not, Blazer Nation - this week Katie and Nora talk about stopping the rumination cycle in its loop, and work through strategies that can help you to begin processing rather than spinning your wheels in the dreaded rumination realm.  Processing is healthy; ruminating is not.  Learn to avoid rumination triggers and most importantly decipher whether or not your type of thinking is helping you solve the problem or if your thinking is making you less confident in your abilities.  Remember, you've got this!

 As always, we want to hear from YOU!!  Tell us your rumination stories and spill the tea on strategies that have helped you move beyond the dreaded rumination realm.
