    I've never been this unmotivated before in my life and I'm constantly procrastinating - how do I stop this?

    I had gone through this phase like around the first 3 weeks of A-levels, but we only have 2 years of this, just 2! You might as well do the revision now and get the grades you need to get into your chosen university. Last Friday I said enough was enough and said to myself we only 2 years which will pretty much flown by the time of the exams so I decided to get my s*** together and promised myself I would do one topic of maths everyday from my textbook and I will have to finish it than after I can relax and watch TV. It's my 3rd day in and I can say you will get use to it. My aspiration is to do Mathematics at Cambridge and to do the course I need A*A*A in Maths, Further Maths and Chemistry. I won't get those grades by depending on the teacher. I have to put in the work now and trust me by results day it will pay off immensely. I always think of it as when it's time to work just work and when it's time to relax just relax, I have kept this going on for the past 3 days and I great about myself because I am slowly gaining myself to the goal I need in life. I suggest when you get home, spend 1 hour eating, relaxing, having a shower or whatever you want to do but after a hour grab your textbook, switch off your phone and laptop and just do the work. This can be answering questions for maths or writing notes and memorising them. Anything you want but always keep in my mind time is going really fast and you don't want to regret anything later in the future. Hope this helps
