SAT Prep?? Staying motivated in quarantine??

How are you guys preparing for the SAT in quarantine? At first, I was going to study really hard for taking the Dec. 7th SAT, but I just can't stay motivated locked at home all day. Does anyone have advice for staying motivated?

    One of the best advice I got was to rely on discipline rather than motivation! Use the pomodoro method which helps because you don’t spend hours on one thing which sometimes is how you fade away from your subject
    Take breaks to workout, listen to a podcast, get a snack and drink water, then go back to you section.

    Its pretty commendable that you're starting to study for the December SAT right now. Honestly you can wait of till the summer and just focus on school/APs right now. However, when you do start, just try to sit in a room and this will eventually make you do your work. Also don't study it till burnout amounts as the SATs are still very far away. So do it in increments and increase around 1.5 months before test date
