My days start off with a routine “stand up” meeting at 9:30 am. After stand up I can be ready to get around 2 hours of productive work where I’m researching, coding, or pair programming with teammates.
When I finish that block of focused time, I get my ass off the computer and make something to eat.

If you’re going to be working at home all day, you should take the effort to make the space what you want it to be. A few items I strongly recommend for your own remote work space include:
With a lack of commute and minimal distractions, you should be finding your day filled with at least a few extra hours of time. Whatever you do with it, don’t waste your newfound freedom. Many people including myself have taken to starting up new side hustles or projects to compliment their primary salary.
Maybe you want to spend extra time with your family, or you want to get in shape, or maybe even start your own side business. Remote work has given us the freedom to choose.
Working long hours is an inconvenience, and here is why you should take a pause:
By working long hours you are increasing your risk for cardiovascular diseases, generally poor health, and fatigue.
The boundaries between work and life are becoming more blurred and the ability to carry our work diminishes in return. Having busy schedules don't allow us to fully turn off, thus sacrificing the time we need to replenish our energy for our healthy and productivity.
It’s almost hard to imagine now that people would commute 2 hours each way, from home to office and back, hopping buses and trains. Remote working, as discovered by millions recently, has plenty of freedom and the added advantage of no-commute.
Landing oneself in a remote working job isn’t a cakewalk, and aspirants need a plan that will showcase them as the best candidate, who is cut out for working productively without supervision.
Working from home means that all the chaos of your home (pets, family members, kids, and kitchen noises) is part of your entire workday.
Self-Discipline, concentration and work ethic are needed to successfully navigate this process.
