Ideally, have a decent-sized desk which affords you a good amount of working space. Basically don’t try and work for hours in an uncomfortable, cramped, space. If you don’t have access to that at home, try decamping to somewhere like the local library, even for a couple of hours (when you know you won’t have to make any calls!).
