Separate work from leisure
When working from home it’s tempting to lounge around, but it’s best to treat it as a normal work day, get up early, shower and get stuck into it.
Having a good source of natural light where you work can help you stay focused. Avoid sitting directly infront of a window or you’ll strain your eyes trying to look at your computer screen.
