Tips for breaking out of hyper focus

I find I get so focused on something, often something trivial, that I completely lose track of what actually needs to be done.

what strategies do you use for breaking out of this and changing tasks when it hits you that this really isn't what you should be doing right now

Re: Tips for breaking out of hyper focus

I dont think its possible to break out of it cause when I hyperfocus I dont realise I'm doing it. I can try all day to do it then when I stop trying I find I have just got lost in something for two hours without meaning to.

It seems to be something that happens unconsciously so I think thats why you cant control it.
