Following the breath is simply a place to put attention on when thought stream has taken you on a mental trip. It's those mental trips into the future or past that people get caught up and lost in that keep attention away from presence. If there is a situation that needs thinking then allow mind/intellect do its job. Once that has been attended to then return to following the breath.
