Sticky Mind

According to a recent essay in Psychology Today, Sticky Mind generates anxiety by causing individuals to fixate on negative thoughts and experiences, leading to a cycle of rumination and worry. This cycle can be triggered by a variety of factors, including stress, trauma, and genetic predisposition. The essay notes that individuals with Sticky Mind may also struggle with decision-making and have difficulty letting go of past mistakes. The constant presence of negative thoughts and feelings can lead to increased levels of anxiety and a decreased quality of life. (Citation: Tartakovsky, M. (2015).
