I am almost always logged in at BRM. I also write blogs, comment on threads while playing poker. Depending on what time it is, sometimes I am watching our night time TV. NCIS, House, Bones, etc etc. 1 thing I don't do, is chat online. It distracts me so I won't do it. I always tell whoever I'm talking to that I have to go play a tourney. I also look up stats on players, MTT's. In freerolls stats don't mean to much to me, cause most of them have no stats...

I find that I have the tv on most of the time, but my best winning sessions are when I play 2/3 tables and have nothing else to distract me.
I also eat and drink (Soft drinks) at the same time. If you are getting bored take a break from poker and come back in a week or so, or, try some deep stack tourneys and try and make notes on all of your opponents this will help you in the long run.
I'm trying to pay attention. I'm still learning so I don't like to do anything else, but... well, I almost always surf the internet I don't listen to music, only sometimes some instrumentals to chill out after 2 outer beats me on the river Sometimes I also watch some sports or poker shows, but most times I'm playing and surfin'
Yeah i usally watch either TV , listen to music amd surf the web, i might have to change that, i had $100 this morning 5 hours later am down to $5 lol. My mission if i it is to rebuild. Will be broke in less than 3 hours guaranteed lol.

Most of the time I try and focus on poker only when I play, but on occasion I will be hauling my laptop around with me all over the house as I do various chores, all the while only playing one or two tables. Among the things I have done while playing poker: - dishes - laundry - cleaning - working on the car (I once changed a valve cover gasket while playing NL400, and did really well over the two hours it took me to do the whole job!)
