      Coming to peace with your thoughts is the best way to do this. Try to understand that the thoughts come from your fears, not from what you want out of life. What I say is “thank you brain but I don’t want to focus on this right now” and try to move on to something else. Accepting that these thoughts are with you for the time being is vital to being happy with your life again
