Dealing With Distractions

Because I work from home, I encounter a lot of distractions on a daily basis.  Not that people who "go to" work don't (it's just that I'm all by my lonesome with no one to call me out or check up on me to see if I'm doing my work).  Anywho--when I find my mind wondering (or daydreaming about a far away land or wanting to take a nap) I try to do a task that requires little thinking.  Some examples: washing dishes, sweeping, laundry, cleaning off my desktop, etc.).  Once I'm done with a simple task, I feel accomplished, re-energized, and more willing to go back to work (which most importantly, helps me keep the focus).
