What things can I do in my head to entertain myself/learn something/pass time quicker?

I have a 200 hour task I need to complete over the next month which is fairly mindless (i.e. I can daydream as much as I like and still get it done) but that doesn't allow me to partake in my usual distractions (reading, music, audiobooks, podcasts). Any form of audio/visual distraction is pretty much out - it all has to be in my head.
What mental exercises can I do to distract myself yet keep my mind busy and maybe learn something at the same time? I'd love to start learning a language but it's pretty hard without being able to listen to tapes, or consult books. Would reciting grammar tables in my head (or something similar but more sensible) help? What are your mind hacks to keep yourself busy and constructive?
