Same bullshit. It depends on what you are distracted by. The easiest way is to play the music, sit comfortably and grab something sweet (and more) to eat on the go. Unfortunately, it does not always work. And if you constantly fidget in place, you cannot choose a comfortable position, your hands itch to touch something all the time, then this is a problem. I don't know right here, I'm sorry :(

If this is a movie, then it's better to watch a TV series or anime IMHO. If this is a game, then you can look for another. There are much more good games than you might think. And if reading books if nothing worked, then you can try comics or manga (Homestuck is a great start).

believe me, if you are interested - there is hardly anything that will distract you from this activity. Well, if you need to concentrate, try to minimize all external stimuli and noises. personally, if it is noisy at home for some reason, then (I saw this life hack somewhere) I listen to non-strained music with headphones, n-mer from games, or go for a walk to the library.
