1. Dedicated space
This is especially important if you live with other people like a spouse, children, or roommates. The living room, dining room, and your bedroom are for other activities, and using them as your office can not only disrupt your work, but also the overall function of your household.
Having a dedicated space set aside for your office or other work activities can separate you from potential distractions and stop you from “taking your work home”, so to speak.
