You Must attend 7 days rajyoga meditation course either online or at nearest center (recommended).
An extreme overthinking turns into an OCD. OCD is linked to actions, so if you act upon what you think in a repeated manner then its OCD.
We understand your obsession with cleanliness, but you must always remember that you are the MASTER OF YOUR OWN THOUGHTS. You are the CREATOR of your thoughts.
OCD is first "THINKING" and second "ACTING".
1. So now you know, where you've to work. First target your thoughts.. Take charge of yourself. Consider youself as powerful soul. When you turn your focus from body (body consciousness) to soul (soul consciousness), half the battle is won. when you will attend rajyoga meditation course you will know how to shift your consciousness.
