In psychology, rumination is when you can't take your mind off of something, often a bitter or negative experience you had in the past, and it still continues to bother you. You try to combat these intrusive thoughts, but they keep coming back no matter how hard you try to push them out. Rumination can be anywhere from a few minutes to an entire hour.

This is often due to a lack of resolution/rectification towards the bitter experience, especially if you failed to take control of the situation.

Rumination can also be about future events or goals, especially a harmful, unhealthy and unrealistic goal that you want to pursue.

The more you ruminate, the deeper the hole you're digging for yourself. It is better to stop ruminating early, or else you might end up in a very unhealthy state, both mentally and physically.
Peter had plans to assemble his Ikea furniture today, but during the assembly his mind wandered off and he started to ruminate about his ex and how she "borrowed" his money but never returned it back, and afterwards broke up with him. He had all these malicious thoughts inside his head and wanted to execute them all, but couldn't get himself to for the sake of his sanity. Peter's rumination costed him an hour's worth of time.

Jim: "The definition provided by Jack didn't get very many likes. It didn't even get a whole lot of views for that matter. Now Jack ruminates in the event with thoughts of failure and poor self-image."

James: "Jack looks like he has a lot on his mind."
Jane: "His girlfriend just dumped him. It was simple incompatibility reasons."
James: "Ouch, but why is he taking it so hard? They were only dating for two months."
Jane: "Jack spends a lot of time inside his own head with negative self-talk." He ruminates too much instead of using this as an opportunity to grow and improve."
