To keep doing what you love, you need to maintain your own systems, not just the ones you write code for. Regular exercise and proper nutrition help you understand, remember, concentrate, and be imaginative –abilities critical to doing your job well. Learn how to modify your workouts, master exercises that make working at a computer more comfortable, and also produce a plan to keep fit, healthy, and sharp for years to come.
Modest changes to your own habits can improve your health–without even getting in the way of your job. The Healthy Programmer gives you a daily plan of action that’s pragmatic and incremental just like the software development processes you are utilised to. Each tip, suggestion, and proper practice is backed up with the recommendation of doctors, scientists, therapists, nutritionists, and many physical fitness pros.
You’ll start by adding a small number of simple activity for your daily life –no trips to the gym desired. You are going to learn how to mitigate back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches, and many other common sources of pain.
You will also learn how to refactor your diet to properly fuel your body without gaining weight or feeling hungry. Then, you’ll turn the exercises and actions into a pragmatic exercise plan which doesn’t interfere with the requirements of your job and may actually enhance your cognitive skills.
You’ll also find out the secrets of prominent figures in the program community that turned their wellness around by making exercise and diet changes. Throughout, you’ll monitor your progress using a”companion iPhone program”.
Last, you will learn how to create your healthy lifestyle pragmatic, attainable, and enjoyable. If you are likely to live nicely, you need to appreciate it.
