One can keep themselves motivated by setting a goals which can give some sense of accomplishment.

Having a good sleep can make one feel fresh and relaxed, which helps in overcoming the distractions and one should keep a balance with not too little and not too much of sleep. Staying awake at late nights for one day and then sleeping in excessively the next day is surely a fire way to feed the depression.
