comment How can I keep track of the math exercises I am doing?
What sort of level of mathematics? Brushing up on high school math? Calculus? Junior level math? Grad school? I would recommend getting a binder with a checklist in front of all the problems in a book. Every time you solve a problem put the solution in the binder with a summary of the methods you used.

comment Feeling after working on hard problem
This is an interesting question, though I think you could work on putting it to words. I have found at some times working on problems exhaust and drain me, especially when I can't solve them. On the other hand, I have had times when I've enjoyed working on problems I can't and haven't solved.

comment What to do when tired instead of surfing the internet?
I think I might want to be mentally tired in the evening, because that means I mostly put a lot of effort in during the day. If I can extend my mental focus for longer, that is great, but at some point I will still be tired. So the problem will remain, if the during of it is shorter.

This in part isn't really helpful. Of course there are many possibilities, but part of the problem is realizing them, particularly when you are tired and you've developed habits.

This is a good idea--there are many things I want to do during the day, but it is possible I do the easy things too early in the day when I have more energy. Thus I do not match my energy to tasks requiring the same amount of energy, which creates waste.

Sleep is good, but sometimes you are tired earlier in the evening, and you won't fall asleep anyways. If I could easily fall asleep early in the evening, I would. But I can't.
