I had to work from home at a previous job and the biggest things I learned that work was keeping a schedule and keeping a separate location. You need to keep your same alarms, same lunch hour, same break from the computers or you will feel like you’re in limbo. It’s also important to avoid doing your work from your tv watching spot on the couch as it becomes difficult to keep work and home separate. I encourage people to find a corner in their home and turn it into their working zone. I live in a 700 sq. ft apartment, so if I can find a space, anyone can.
