Make sure that your machines are well-ventilated
Due to long hours of using your personal computers or laptops, it’s battery or CPU might get hot. So, it’s advisable to work in an air-conditioned room.

Planning meals in advance
Thinking of what food to eat can be a little challenging sometimes. So, putting it up together in advance is a big help on your part. For example, if you would want to cook for your own lunch,
prepare the ingredients ahead, and arrange them in your fridge. This way, you don’t waste time deciding what to cook or prepare. Or put your cooked food in the microwave oven to heat it up. If there’s a time constraint, there are food delivery apps that can serve you well.
Keep yourself away from distractions
If you have a TV at home, turn it off while you’re working. If other members of the house want to watch TV, have your workstation away from the TV, to keep you focused on your work.
Maintain cleanliness in your working space
A clean room is a great space for work. You wouldn’t want to work in a room that’s topsy turvy and dusty. Keep your brooms and vacuum cleaners intact so that you will maintain your room every day.
Always dress-up at your best
