How do you prevent a workflow from running on items in a folder within a document library?

I set up a workflow in a document library configured to start immediately when a new item is created. I noticed that when I created a folder in the document library and added items in there, the workflow ran on those items as well. Is there a way to prevent the workflow from running on the items in the folder? I tried adding a Run If workflow action where if the current item field equals value where Content Type equals Folder, the workflow would end. It's not working. I tried using the URL Path for the folder but that didn't work either. Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!!
