    Maybe not always but often. When you have problem it's better to consult other people ;-)

    Me personally i meditate everyday for a little amount of time, depending on the seriousness of my issues, or thoughts. I go into very deep thoughts actually leaving reality and thinking amazing clear... Its hard to explain but its relieving and i never talk to anyone i cope with it myself, not saying not to talk to people, this is best for most people.

    I am constantly thinking and thinking and thinking, I can never clear my head of thoughts. Although I sometimes have a bad day, I am positive most of the time. Of course, this habit will make you negative more easily because you keep thinking and eventually, overthink.

    I am quite a positive person and I think all the time. I'm always planning ahead in my mind. If I have a problem, I think it through but always talk it through with my partner. A problem shared is a problem halved.

    I just can't see that for other people NEVER THINK about what they to do and in up in all kind of trouble and have all kind of problem. when you thinking everything, you looking at ALL the angle, good and bad. and then you make you decisions. right or wrong but, you at least thought about it.

    Some people are "deeper thinkers" than others, but I don't think it's about how "deeply" someone thinks, or how often he does.  I think it more has to do with whether or he has a generally healthy mind. 

    I think a symptom (not cause) of mental illness is often that people start pulling inward and way from other people.  I don't have the expertise to say that deep thinking and lots of it doesn't EVER cause mental illness, but I generally think that the behavior I described above can SOMETIMES be a sign that a person is struggling with mental-health issues (and certainly not always "madness").  If by "madness" you mean Schizophrenia (which is usually what people mean when they say "madness"), something that has been associated with that particular mental illness has been heredity and stress.

    Having said that, though, it's really common for people (especially people who are young and trying to figure out their purpose and place in the universe; as well as having time on their hands to "ponder" "deep things" ) to spend quite a bit of time thinking.  When my two girlfriends and I were late teens, two of us enjoyed pondering the meaning of life, the universe, philosophy, etc.  The third wasn't someone who liked doing a lot of thinking/discussing.  She'd put up with our hours-long philosophy and "all of life" discussions for awhile.  Then she'd say, "I'm leaving.  You guys are too deep!"  LOL  It was a joke between the three of us because two of us knew how prone to "deep pondering" we were - alone and together.  smile  Eventually,  settled into my own version of all those issues, had my family, and moved onto different kinds of thinking.  I think most young (and maybe not always so young) people have to work out all the deeper issues of life before feeling they've reached some "resolution" to some extent - and then they go on, keep thinking, but base future thinking on what they've already "established" about life.

    Anyone who is concerned about his own mental health should talk to a professional about it, but I don't think (no, I know) that, by themselves, deep thinking or long stretches of thinking are signs of or causes of mental illness.

    Aiming for good balance of activities/socializing in life is always a healthy thing, though.  Sometimes people who don't have a lot of other activities (even if only for a short period of time) think "for fun" (because it can be interesting).  smile

    Keep in mind that I'm not a professional and that this is only a personal opinion.

    Yes it certainly does ... when the "Thinking" is deep ... and along the "Wrong" lines ...

    Along, the Right lines ... it becomes "contemplation" and leads to what you know as Mukti or Nirvana ...

    It does play an effect depending on what it is your focusing on...  but yes I do find that I think a lot and that can wind up being depressing; it really comes down to what your thinking about as to whether its positive or negative.  Though I do experience my thoughts  raceing...  ...which of cause has no ending and etc; etc;....

    YES...i sometimes start contemplating what death is like and is it all over after that. I try to imagine NOT existing until i'm either confused or depressed. That's when i try to think of something else instead smile
