ya it happens to me too, if you really want your mind to be at peace (i know its cliche) but meditate, all you need to do is just sit or lie down perfectly still and focus on your breathing count to 4 while breathing in and count to 4 when breathing out at a slow but constant pace
The canoe is too big so it sinks? That makes no sense. Otherwise those really big ships would sink for being too big. Thinking is like breathing. or moving or doing anything. How do you move you hand? How do you take a breath? You don't think about it. You do it. You assert the will and it happens. Sort of like controlling your dreams. How do you do it? You just do it.
Pfffttt! I do that too .. especially when I can't sleep!
