I over think everything and I spend a lot of time on the past - way too much time. I tell myself I'm trying to learn from it, but sometimes I'm so deep in the past (or worried about the future) that I miss out on the present (another mistake I can lool back on and fret - thus messing up that future moment). It's a never ending cycle if you don't get a grip on it. I actually find myself saying "stop it!" to myself - out loud. I know I can't change the past and I have to remind myself that now is all I have and that spending it worrying about something I can do nothing about isn't fair to me or the people in my life. It's hard - but I keep trying. Good luck.

this happens to me a lot when i get depressed. especially when i am trying to go to sleep. i try to focus on something else, like an interesting problem that requires all my concentration. often distraction is the best defense against the symptoms of depression.
