I should start by saying that I have ADHD and I don’t take any type of medication for it. It can make focusing on work that doesn’t interest me very difficult. I do have ways around it and one of them is listening to music on YouTube premium that I have previously liked or downloaded.
If it is a task that I enjoy, I won’t listen to anything at all. This is called hyper-focus and when I get hyper-focused on a task or project, I can zone out for a long time and not realize it at all.
