Rubber bands?

There's a technique to remind you not to continue ruminating, which depends on being able to reroute your thoughts. Put a rubber band around one wrist, and when you find yourself ruminating, snap it and redirect your thoughts. Do it often enough, and you'll learn to stop yourself.

Sounds too simple, but it still ain't easy.

And, as Dinah pointed out, CBT is said to be good for it.

Good luck.
