When your mind is captured by a thought, re-mindfully disengage and watch the though unwind and return to your original focus. These lapses will happen often affording lots of practice at remindful disengagement.
Surveillance of the mind in order to intelligently re-mindfully disengage with discursive thought is a skill that is worth the time to develop.
Hope you have an awesome day!
