At times you may be obsessed with certain worries.
You do not want to worry the entire day. A useful technique is to set aside time slots for giving thought to those matters. When a worry arises during the rest of the day, tell yourself, "Now is not the time for worry. At 9:00 this evening I will think about it, but not now."
This gently pushes away worries, and gives you confidence that you have control.
(Rabbi Pliskin's Gateway to Happiness, p.168)
