Establish Ground Rules with friends or family when working from Home

Create rules with others in your home or those in your workspace.

If there are children learning from home or arriving home from school during your work time, you need clear rules set regarding what they can and cannot do during that time. If you share a space with another adult working from home, you may have to arrange quiet times, and meeting times, along with any shared equipment, like desks and chairs. Knowing when another person has a meeting at a certain time helps you prepare to work around it and avoid inconveniencing them.  

Also, although you're home and can let service people into the house or take care of pets doesn't mean other family members should assume you are always available. If you choose to take on the bulk of the domestic labour because you work from home, that's fine, but if you take it on by default because you're home,  may cause you to feel taken advantage of, and your ability to get your job done can be disturbed.
