The suggestions to get up and walk around etc. are good if your cycles are long (an hour or so). But when cycle times get short, and I find myself popping back and forth between vim and make every few minutes, then I stay in the zone by staying in the pipeline: While the build or test suite is running, I tend to go back and review the code, then start working on the next chunk that I'd be doing anyway if the build or tests do succeed.
