For myself when I have impulsive thoughts I think they're caused by anxiety. I'll usually have them when I'm tired or after a stressful situation. These thoughts aren't about the stressor. The psychologist I saw as a teenager had me call her when this happened. Now as I'm getting older, I kinda ignore them and try to relax. Once the anxiety lessens I try to identify the cause and find solutions if they may be helpful.
