Can anyone share how you find motivation to study after a full day of work?

I've recently decided to give CFA a try and will sit for June exam. However, sometimes I found really hard to concentrate on studying after a long time at work and after dinner. Of course the ultimate motivation for studying is the accomplishment of passing it later on. But how do you find motivation to keep going on the daily basis (especially during the week day) without falling into sleep while sitting in front of the desk?

Any tips are welcomed! Thank you!

You will have to fall in love with the study material and this will keep you motivated.

Cook dinner, go for a walk, have a shower, whatever - just try to approach your study as fresh as possible.

I have designed my study so I plan on studying 4 nights out of Mon-Fri. That way I have a
