As thoughts slip in and out of your head, try to imagine them captured in a bubble and floating past. Rather than attaching to your thought, recognize that it matters, but if it is not serving you, let it float away. Ask, does this thought bring me closer to joy, or away? What can happen when our thoughts are not set apart in this way is they can rain down on us, flooding our mind quickly. By stepping back to view our thoughts, we find shelter and simply watch the droplets of throughts trickle down outside our mind's window.
