Title says it all, got my first two exams next week and my productivity has stopped.
Any ideas on how to stop the rot?

Imagine yourself on results day. Picture yourself slowly opening that envelope, and next to all your subjects you have A*s. Imagine the relief, satisfaction and joy.
Now picture yourself slowly opening the envelope, and you have failed all subjects. You think to yourself 'why didn't I study more', 'I wish I could go back in time and do more revision', but it will be too late. You will regret it a LOT.
Which one do you want to be?

Set yourself goals for the next few hours (don't say 'i will do this today' because that is so easy to procrastinate it's ridiculous, breaking it up into chunks really helps) and then maybe get yourself a snack when you're finished. Rinse and repeat. When you're giving yourself a break you could find something related to a part you're interested in about the topic you're studying (like if i'm revising physics and starting to hate it i'll go watch an astronomy lecture. It helps me hate it less.).
Making lists helps too.
