The “work first” mindset

Design your days around your work. Yes, there are other important things you have to take into consideration, but keeping your eyes your work signals that you are committed to getting your work done no matter what.
You can wear whatever you want, you can work from the couch, you can work at 2 AM or 6 PM, using any type of app you like.

Environmental Associations

Environmental associations are cues from your working environment that tell your brain "I'm in the office, so it must be time to work." Most of them are assimilated subconsciously (for example, your office space, the draft you always feel coming from the air duct next to your desk, and the view as you look out your office building's window.)

But when you work from home many of these associations are gone and your brain receives a confusing mix of "work time" and "relax time" cues.
