Maybe it is, but thinking about nice things (dreaming) is nice.

John Locke, English philosopher & physician who many regard in high esteem, had a nervous breakdown from too much thinking at 1 time in his life or so I read in a Psych history book years ago.

Thinking also helps you discern the best possible option, though. I think it's just as dangerous to not overthink something.

Too much of a good thing isn't really a good thing.
Posted 6/11/17
Yes, it can be.
Posted 6/11/17
Yeah it's pretty bad. I end up thinking if every possibility from now to years from now. It just gives me anxiety

It's all in the balance
Sometimes, the best way to solve a problem is to stop thinking and let the mind wander. Overthinking just creates clutter in the head. Hopefully it's useful clutter, but no matter how organized, eventually it's going to overwhelm you.

That, and as per the picture, those who think more are often more depressed or at least cynical.
I also suggest looking at Kirito from SAO Abridged for a somewhat decent example of this
