I have been working from home for 17 years, and I agree with all these statements. I have done all the wrong things (sleeping in, working too late, snacking at my desk, not getting up) and it does make you miserable if you retain these bad habits. So now my desk sits in the front room of my house, right by the window, forcing me to get dressed every day. I have a sitting/standing desk and a timer (still working on using it more). I go out for walks around the block twice a day, and I ALWAYS take my lunch break, even if I just sit and veg in front of the TV. If you work in an office, you take periodic breaks from work to go to the break room, talk with colleagues, etc. Try to do the same when you work from home. Don't become a slave to your desk!
