What do you do while you code?

β€ͺI constantly find myself needing to watch #political debates or #documentaries while coding. Maybe not to watch it constantly but to have the background noise as well.‬

β€ͺAm I the only one that does this???‬

If so what do you do while working?

The moment i get to the office, i put my headphones on, while i dont listen to anything 80% of the time, it is just to block out the outside noise (people talking over the phone, or hearing their steps), and when i listen to anything, i mainly listen to podcasts or play some rain/thunder sounds which i find relaxing while working, anything to block out the noise here at the office.


I find myself playing with my hair in-between bursts of keystrokes. Especially when the reflection in the monitor is just right, but I imagine that's more of a girl thing. πŸ‘§


Definitely not just a girl thing πŸ˜„ - men with beards πŸ‘


Hey I do it too so I don’t think so... we’ll i don’t look in the mirror my daughter does that enough for me lol


I work in an open space office and I've been lately in a lead position. This means from time to time people approach to me to ask questions or just to talk.

As I face this kind of distraction frequently, I decided not to listen to music while at work. This way I don't need to put off my earphones anytime someone speaks to me πŸ˜†

Of course, sometimes I listen to music or podcasts but I mainly do not.


I typically listen to music, mostly movie and video game scores. Really helps me focus.


Listen to Techno and Synthwave music, perfect boost to productivity!


I listen to classic alternative music and drink coffee.


I don’t do coffee too much anymore because it makes me poooiooo.....


I twirl my pen or solve my rubik cube on my desk!


Can you twirl through all fingers? I started with a coin when I was younger and saw β€œTwo Face” do it.


Songs...β™₯️ Without them I can't focus πŸ˜…


While learning coding some sometimes, I put pandora on through the headphones.
