Never forget communication. You must know that your work profile is not changed; only your location is. So keep the connection with your colleagues. Also, if you are feeling overwhelmed or stressed, reaching out to someone from your team or even your boss for some advice or talk can help keep you in order.
As you are working from home, you must not get confused between your home chores and professional tasks. Try to manage a healthy routine which includes all your home tasks at the first hour and the rest in the office time.
