A few instructions on distractions in meditation from the wise and gentle Francis de Sales, who was based in the beautiful town of Annecy

If the heart wanders or is distracted, bring it back to the point quite gently…
And even if you did nothing during the whole of your hour but bring your heart back,
though it went away every time you brought it back,
your hour would be very well employed.

Saint Francis de Sales
