Remember that you will have to study at some point, but it's better to do it earlier than later and in smaller chunks. I use leisurely things as initiative, so I tell myself to read a chapter of a textbook before I can go on to play a video game or relax for example. That takes a lot of self discipline but I think rewarding yourself with small things regularly can be a great way to push yourself to study. I will not do something I enjoy until I've at least tried to study, and usually I do just what I need to. Then I don't feel so bad when I do relax/play video games because I know I've done some work. If I study all day, then the next day will be a day of leisure or predominantly leisure. I think it's important to balance out study and leisure like this to avoid burning yourself out!
