This is exactly me. It’s like the dark changes my psychology to not want to revise or something. What I do is turn the lamp on, so it isn’t dark.

You could try lighting scented candles which could help evening studying.

Give yourself a small break immediately when you get home from college/sixth form; listen to some music or something. I always think it's daunting focusing on one massive chunk/subject, so when you're ready to start for that evening, set half hour timers and then a 10 minute break, and switch up the subject regularly. Sometimes, you'll end up getting so into a subject you'll forget to do this (and that's good)
I would put time aside right at the end of the evening for something you'll forward to! Maybe a book or an episode something with a snack. Also, you'll obviously have dinner to divide up the evening.

Remember, it's okay to do way more study on one day than the next. Having a rough plan of what to try and cover everyday before the week starts will help with stress, trust me. I used to use fairy lights + my desk lamp; a candle is also very calming when you're studying. Maybe also try working in different places around your house to shake things up a bit, it can get too dark and lonely spending hours straight by yourself in your room! It is stressful sometimes, but I had the same problem, it just takes a bit of resilience, you got this OP
