I can add another one: always use the timer. The first reason is to know when to stop. You want to take a rest sometimes. :) The second reason is to prove to yourself, that you're actually working full time, even if some people have doubts (and they will). Even if you never show that timer to anyone but yourself, you will be much calmer and less stressed. I work remotely 30-40% of the time, and I know that helps. :)

I can agree. It's very good practice to time-box yourself in both personal and professional life. The Pomodoro technique, in my opinion, is an excellent example.
