Design the desk as you ever wanted it to be, and set manage cables. Choose between your PC and laptop. Laptop with BT shared peripherals consume less place.

Add protein, carbs, and some taste to your breakfast. Take it heavily so that you do not have to leave your place for food-hunt.

Use Google Calendar for Chromebook or momentum-dash for Windows.

Use Google Keep for video chats and Telegram for office chats, because people can’t post statuses on Telegram.

Clean your private or workspace every day, and be your own janitor. A cleanroom brings in positivity and keeps the dark dimension away.
Connect to the internet but disconnect from social media, so that you do not have to refresh your feed and waste your time.
- Avoid multitasking:
Multitasking leads to confusion, which leads to procrastination. Stay focused and maintain your daily drivers, but stick to one task at a time. Otherwise, you will miss something else.
- Read a book or plant a sapling with your family:
Your family needs you when you all are at home. It’s impossible to tolerate someone managing everything, and the other is spending time staring at the computer screen. Talk to real humans.
- Enjoy on a metered-connection:
Watch a movie or web series or listen to podcasts but with data caps, so they stop, and it is the time to increase productivity.
