      Every now and again I go and get a drink (and sometimes a chocolate bar!) to break away from working. this helps you refocus when you initially cant.

      Also I listen to music in my headphones when I can to make the day go faster and also helps me thing/get away from distractions.

      Sometimes I listen to music if I’m doing quite a repetitive task like drawing updates.

      Other times I find it easier to concentrate if I mix activities up so I don’t have to do one thing for too long. So I’ll save up odds-and-ends jobs in the workshop, then go spend an hour doing those, and come back with new concentration for a technical report or CAD work.
