6. Create a Proper Schedule
Technically, if you work from home, you can wake up anytime you want. This is an amazing luxury to have on days when you feel sick. But try not to get in the habit of sleeping in every single day. If you want to be productive, wake up with an alarm, just like you would with a normal job. Give yourself work hours, a lunch break, and a time when it is appropriate for you to stop working.
If you have children, or a spouse who still runs on a normal work schedule, this can help keep you on a schedule, because you can wake up when they do, and stay awake. When you know that there is only a certain amount of hours left before the kids get off the school bus, it’s a great motivator to get your work done within that time window.
