When I first began studying from home, I found it very unusual and found myself becoming easily distracted as I was in an environment that I was familiar with which made me more relaxed and at ease.

I had tested a few methods of being productive and found a good balance. Here is my daily routine, I hope by sharing this that you find some inspiration to help improve your own virtual learning environment:
