I recommend this book, The Quiet Mind. This is a spiritual matter, but you will see that you can apply these principles to anything. The book is new agey, left field, a little weird, kind of Christian. It has short little blurbs. I use it to stay grounded, focused. Here is the principle: It sits on a shelf in my office, and everytime I go in or out of the office (in general), I read a blurb. This is extremely helpful to me.
The going in or out is the anchor, it tells me to read the blurb. The reading has many positive effects; one is like the sitting, it gets me away from the turmoil in my mind and my immediate concerns and gives me a little space and distance. So it is helpful to me spiritually but in other ways too. So if your spiritual life is important to you, I recommend the book; if not , you can use something else to achieve some of the same benefits and you can use the anchoring strategy.
