    I am unable to study, despite having all the reason to want to study, and with an AAA offer to try and achieve, I find myself completely unmotivated and unable to study. During this Easter holiday I have written one flashcard. I am watching my future go down the drain, but whenever I try to study I just get ridiculously tired and don't want to do it.
    How do you get motivated when you don't feel like working?

    Is there a specific reason behind the tiredness? If you're struggling for motivation start by doing it in small bursts and gradually build up the revision from there

    I would suggest talking to friends who are always studying and talking about revision.
    This might inspire you to start doing more revision.
    You could also try watching motivation videos on youtube.

    I believe in just doing something instead of waiting for the motivation to do it, but lately I've had a quote from a film running about in my head which gives me some kind of drive;

    "So what stops people from reaching anywhere near their real potential? The answer to that, can be found in the answer to another question; What is the most universal human characteristic - is it fear or laziness?"
