Cannot bear down and foucs, what do you do when something just eats at your mind?

Im working on detailing a clients car today and all I can do is thinking about the last 5 weeks events, its driving me fucking mad. When you cannot focus what do you do to get yourself over that hump and get a clear head?
If I can’t clear my mind, I stop what I’m doing and follow these steps:

1. Create a plan to solve whatever problem I’m worrying about, or at least do the best that I possibly can

2. Stick to the plan

3. Don’t worry about it at all, because other than following my plan, there is nothing that I can do about it.

A couple of weeks ago I had to miss a whole weeks worth of work. Because of it, I can’t pay my mortgage payment or car payment on time, which were both due 3 days ago. There really is nothing I can do about it for at least 2 more weeks, which is when I will get enough money from my weekly paychecks.

Because I know there is nothing I can do, I have no reason to worry about it.

I write the shit down that I keep going over in my head. I’ll sit there and purge till I get it all down on paper and usually there’s a huge purge, like 5-30 minutes.

Then I focus and very often I feel another purge coming on so I’ll run and do that again and get it all written down.

Then go back to work.

Very often 2 or 3 of these purges and I’ve at least got everything down on paper. THen I have to start addressing all those things.
Meditation works.
