E.g. a thought occurs to you that could send you off in the wrong direction and recognizing thought for what it is you can add “is what I used to think.” to the thought. Or you can take a deep breath and say “Thanks but not right now” and go do something constructive. LikeLike Reply by doing nothing…..

Had been looking, well more glancing at my garden fence a few times, thinking (oh oh there goes that word again) it was due a spruce up. Sooo, after your post, went to the DIY store, bought some paint and brushes then spent the day outside, in the sunshine, painting fence. Gave myself a goal to get half of fence + gate done by tonight – achieved! 🙂 This would be one of my suggestions as to how to control one’s thoughts, do something different to what you are thinking.
