Default Advice for all day hunt

Does anyone have any advice on how to sit in a treestand all day long without going insane? I've tried it many times but never seem to be able to make it more than 3-4 hours. I have a comfortable stand and take plenty of food. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions on how to pass the time.

Thanks for your time.

The Bible is a good idea, I've been wanting to get into that habit.

It would seem that if you want to sit all day, you believe you might see a deer at any time throughout the day, right? So, why would you take your attention fromtrying to see deer, by reading, texting, or game playing? I don't get it.
Most of the days when I'll be hunting all day will be during the rut phases. These deer are on the move at any given time. I just keep reminding myself, my shooter could be the next deer I see. Having belief in your stand location isBIG for self confidence/alertness as well.

As far as taking my attention away from seeing deer, maybe. However, I only have a limited numbers of days I can hunt and would like to get all the time in the woods I can. Yes, I may devote less time scanning the area if I am distracted, but I would still have a better chance seeing a deer while on the stand than at the camp. Hopefully anyway!
