    to keep or to take

    2) Is there a difference between "to keep one's mind off problems" and "to take one's mind off problems" or are "keep" and "take" the same?

    No, they are not the same.
    You might possibly do something to take your mind off your problems, and then continue to do it to keep your mind off them.
