Find out why I call rumination pre-depression/pre-anxiety.  Identifying and solving for rumination can have a significant impact on reducing much of the suffering we experience on a daily basis.  In this episode I describe the science of rumination, common rumination movies that play inside our head, and tactics for terminating rumination before it spirals out of control.
