When I first starting working remotely I would work on the couch and work late into the night, like 2AM. I was productive, but barely. And it was taking a toll in my family life. I realized the importance of having my own designated workspace, and investing in the right equipment to be productive. I bought a desk and some good monitors. I also made sure to get work done at a reasonable time (9 to 5ish) and spend my family time with my family. I find getting sleep is also key to me being productive as a programmer.
