1) Set a schedule. 
Just like you would with any other job, it is important to set a 'work' schedule for yourself. Start work at the time you set, but also allow yourself to stop working at a promised time as well.

2) Get dressed. 
Get dressed in the morning as you would if you were going to the office. You will be surprised to see how much this instantly motivates you! 

3) Set up a working area.
Even if it is just a desk, get in the habit of working in that a specific area when working from home. This way you are able to differentiate 'office' from 'home' and your "new" environment will be more conducive to work.

4) Turn off social media/TV. 
Social media or turning on the TV while you work can be super distracting. Since working from home means you are your own boss, it is important to turn off all distractions to improve your overall productivity. 

5) Get outside. 
Staying at home all day can make you feel uninspired, so get outside! Bring your laptop to your local coffee shop and get sh*t done!

6) No personal errands.
You might be tempted to wash the dishes, fold the laundry or grab a few groceries during 'work hours' but you must resist the temptation! Personal errands should be kept for personal hours, not during work time! 

7) Say no to family/friends.
It may be hard for your family or friends to understand that while you may not be at a typical 9-5 job, you are still working during the day. Avoid meetings/phone calls with them during your work hours!
