We all know the typical programmer: A geek that lives to sit in front of a computer 24/7, feeding on pizzas and refreshments, getting little sleep and never exercising.
Lately, I caught myself matching the picture above. I said enough is enough and set out to become what I once was: A healthy, strong fellow with a clear mind.
Here is what I did:
- Stopped drinking anything except water and the occasional taverna drinks (Oyzo, Tsipoyro, Wine).
- Today I stopped drinking coffee.
- Started eating 4 times a day, not to much at a time.
What? Just that?
Well, I want to make many more changes, to become a healthy programmer, but what I have learned by now is not to overwhelm myself by making many difficult changes all at once. I used a technique that is also used in programming: Divide and Conquer. I have many more changes in line and I will post about my progress from time to time.
