Also do yourself a favour and find a quiet place, and silence all devices.
I am still learning to quieten my mind
A good idea would be to be aware of the thoughts
Observe each thought from a neutral third person perspective
That might be a good idea
Another option is to instead 'do something else' than 'avoiding distractions' like focus on 'breathing'
This will automatically reduce distractions
Also its suggested to not focus too much with a lot of effort on this
It might become a frustrating experience
I just aknowledge the thoughts without loosing focus on breathing.
Thoughts are not distractions until we react on them and except them as our own source of truth
