    Honestly that is so me. Depends on what subjects you're doing.
    If you have a textbook, an easy thing to do is to get postit notes and stick them over paragraphs or sections. Then you summerise what's underneath. Boom! Instant flashcards. It's a very basic thing.
    The thing I've found about motivation is that you have to make it as easy as possible to revise, and as difficult as possible to do anything else; such as getting rid of your phone or anything else that can distract you, getting your revision materials out in front of you and having as little as possible else in the room.
    If you've done it right, you will try to procrastinate (drawing, walking, etc) but eventually you will start doing it because it's keeping you from doing nothing. That's how I did it, anyway. Almost all Bs can't be too wrong?
