I'm a first year medical student and recently, I've just completely been unable to study like I want to study but I just cannot. So the motivation is there but when i get my books out, within about 20 minutes, I lose the ability to concentrate and just start looking around and getting a headache.
My mum came over to visit me and I took about 3 days off [still had lectures etc, did about an hour everyday] so it's not that I need a break as i kind of had a break. All of yesterday I was unable to study and today I've done about 2 hours but because I've fallen behind whilst my mum is here, I need self-discipline in order to carry on but I just cannot.
Anyone got any decent advice?

There's two ways I deal with this:
1) I think to myself: for every minute that i dont revise someone else is gaining one up on you so you're falling behind. that would make you less likely to succeed and at that stage you might as well drop out. That usually gets me scared enough to revise.
2) Think about how much debt you're going to have. make it count.
