Biggest thing for me, and everyone's results may vary, is having uptempo instrumental music playing.Other than that, close out of everything except what you're currently working on (Windows virtual desktops are nice for this if you don't want to actually close everything). Turn my phone off and get to work.
Good one! I do use virtual desktops to segregate different types of applications to minimize context switching.
Staying away from my phone as much as possible has been massively helpful lately. Music always helps. I love listening to instrumental ambient stuff, sometimes lo-fi and sometimes post-rock. Spotify's Deep Focus playlist is great!
