Loved the article! This is my first time working from home!
Here are a few tips that I followed:

  1. Do not work in your bedroom. Often I find myself sleeping instead of working when I'm in the bedroom. I recommend you move somewhere that has a desk, good lighting, and no bed.
  2. Set a schedule. You should keep a clear schedule to track your progress. My colleagues and I use Quire ( to collaborate on our projects. This helps us assign individual tasks to different people and also check if the progress is going well. It also has reminders so that we can know clearly when the deadline is.
  3. Start work the same time you would normally enter the office. This helps you maintain your original routine, and also stop you from slacking off.
  4. Take breaks. Taking breaks help you clear your mind and stay focused, I usually take a break after two hours of working non-stop. I would go make a cup of coffee, let my dog out to the backyard, or throw a few hoops before I get back to work.
