Great points, David! To your last bit about mental health, I would say many of our other posts speak to this, but I would just add that during long-term studying without a clear end date, building time off into a study schedule becomes extra important. You are much more likely to stay motivated and focused for 10 hours a day, 6 days a week, than to try and stay motivated and focused for 14 hours a day, 7 days a week. Make some time for exercise, eating well, seeing family and friends (in a socially distanced, safe way), etc.
