How to increase productivity and health in daily coding life.

You think, why should I care?

But what do I know about health?

What really helps to reduce stress and related musculoskeletal pain!

1. First step: Your working environment.

2. Implement short activity breaks for more productivity

  • Mobility Exercises: Rotating shoulders and arms, moving head from right to left and left to right, hip rotating, etc… (some more exercises, click here the link)
  • Yoga/ Stretching: Hands to Feet, Hip stretching, etc… (For some more exercises, click here the link)
  • Walks: just make a short walk around the house or your workplace
  • etc …

3. Workout or do physical activities regulary!

  • 2–3 times a week a physical activity at least 30 minutes long at a moderate intensity like running, cycling, skating, or swimming. Moderate means you should sweat a little and be a little bit exhausted.
  • Additionally, you should do a workout with your body weight or weights at least one time a week.
