I'm not sure if I hate painting, or if I find it therapeutic. Perhaps the hatred is therapeutic?
Anyway, I try to take my mind off it by having a tv show running in the background. Mostly shows which don't require much attention, and I've watched before.

If I put on music, it has to be stuff where I either don't know the lyrics, or it's purely instrumental. Or else I kinda have to sing along, and that messes up my painting quite a bit

Just got back into painting again after about an 18 months break!

Been having exams so haven't got done in the past couple of months (not that I got much done before that either) but building, I will generally take my hobby tray thing to the living room and build while I watch a film or tv with the family, the grooves underneath let it sit on your lap quite comfortably.

For painting I will set up the table in my room and will generally have the radio on in the background. I also use it as good time to catch up on TV series, most of my Game of Thrones veiwing is done while painting as I don't like to just sit and watch stuff as I feel like I'm not being productive.

Me: To be honest im amazed there isn't a chaos god of not revising or at least chaos god of procrastination

MidnightSun: There will be, when enough people do it. Y'know when the Eldar were all engaging in their hedonism and Slaanesh ripped open the Eye of Terror with his creation? Slaanesh will have NOTHING on the God of Procrastination, and his vile minions will carve the galaxy asunder in a thousand year reign of blood.... Tomorrow

Podcasts and audiobooks. Fill up all that free brain bandwidth with noise you're busy listening to while your eyes and fingers are on autopilot working on the minis. Music works in a pinch, certainly, though doesn't often engage and distract the brain to the degree that, say, Welcome to Night Vale does. I'm more likely to listen to music if I'm writing fiction or something: more background noise than foreground attention-demanding stuff.

I have one of those handy hobby vices to hold my model still so I can drybrush with one hand and leave the other one free to flog it as hard and as fast as I can. There have been several injuries but I'm no quitter.

Sometimes I yodel as well, just because I can, even if the neighbors say I can't.

Lectures on youtube, mainly. That way I'm more educated than I was than when I started. My last run was the Stanford seminars.

Wealth is created when we use new knowledge to create new things or improve efficiencies.
This technology, along with people pondering applications using type three levers is literally a new mechanical revolution in waiting. There are going to be many patents, from people who're curious and can tinker.
