Subconscious Practice

What are some activities I can do to put me in a working subconscious state? When my conscious is up and about it just trips me up. It's great for parsing things, but bad for almost everything else, including getting work done or while I'm exercising.

Avoiding Energy Sapping Thoughts

I've discovered one of the mechanisms of my laziness. When it comes time to do something, I start thinking about how boring or tedious it will be to do it. Thinking this very effectively zaps all my energy and will to do this thing. The interesting thing is, if my mind is occupied with something else, say a book or conversation I've recently had, then those negative thoughts don't pop into my head, and I can work away like a happy little smurf. How do I avoid these negative thoughts, so I can "Just Do It"?
