For me it was breathing and not giving in to the pain mentally. What I mean by not giving into the pain mentally is by not saying "OMG this hurts, this hurts, this hurts" But rather just let the pain take over and do its job and remind yourself that pain is GOOD. The pain is your baby making his way into the world.

Really focusing on taking good breaths during contraction helps distract yourself, as well as counting. ANYTHING that you can focus on besides focusing on the pain.

For me personally, I was so busy focusing inside my head that the president could have been in the room and I wouldn't have noticed. Actually, sometimes I wish people would have just left me alone so I could focus better because sometimes they were distracting. Once I was distracted, I had to start my focus all over again. I welcomed the pain, rather than looking at it in a negative way.
