Lack of Ambition

Since Social Isolation has started, I have found that the ambition to continue with uni work has decreased. I find it hard to sit for an hour and research or write an essay. But over the past few weeks, I have found that exercising every morning, and taking regular breaks (every 45mins or so) to procrastinate has worked well when it comes to focusing. My housemates and I even pulled out the fridge and cleaned behind it the other day, just to take a break; yes this is what procrastinating has come to,.... cleaning a student house. Yet still, ambition to actually get started varies day today, so some days I do no work at all and others I'll do a full day's academic work.
It varies from person to person, but I have found listening to what you are feeling helps massively and stops you from falling into a rut of having no ambition for anything. Also, if you are still in York, taking your daily exercise to campus has really helped remind me I am actually a student and I have a degree to be getting on with (also LongBoi is out and about a lot at the moment and Nisa has so much food discounted).
Is there anything else students are doing help with their lack of ambition to do work?
