    Set yourself small goals.
    Waking up one day and expecting to get loads done will not only stress you, but also put you off work.
    Unfinished or unstarted work can demotivate lots of people, especially as unfinished/unstarted work begins to pile up.
    Have realistic, small goals.

    Do a variety of tasks
    It's important to do small things, but in a fairly large variety.
    Rather than setting a certain day for one single subject, spread your work out and do different subjects on one day.
    It'll make you feel good when you look back on it all at the end of the day.

    Think about what you can do now, rather than what you should/could have done
    I usually demotivate myself and procrastinate when I think of all the work I should have done at some point, and make myself feel bad.
    It doesn't do anyone good feeling upset.

    Do work early in the morning
    I can't stress this enough. Don't leave work for after a certain time.
    Once you've done any chores or errands and eaten breakfast, hit the books.
    Motivation doesn't last for long, for anyone. Leaving work for the afternoon may be put off.

    Smile!
    Make sure to look over what you have done! It's important to remember that you have done work, and work is better than nothing!

    Good luck!
