Establish a working space, just as if you were at your office, try to work from a desk, if you keep working from bed, you will not only accomplish a back pain but you might find yourself asleep half through your tasks. Try to keep this space clean, and with an agenda, where you can write off the tasks accomplished. 

       3. Keep a realistic schedule, the dream of working from home is that the working hours of your office vanish. You can set your own schedule, and place it during the time you personally feel you will be most productive.

4. Create a pleasing working atmosphere,  try listen to spotify, podcast or even background tv, or if you prefer silence, it is a great time to discover what you like and what works for you.  Maybe the companionship of your pet can motivate you while working.
