Good tip! Lots of solitaire apps for the phone too.

With regards to counting, I noticed that simply counting out loud or mouthing the numbers under my breath helps a little too.

Or doing simple but fast math. I downloaded a math game that has simple addition and subtraction. This helps preoccupy me as well.
