I thought we can discuss a a bit about our health….I know, it’s a bit out of topic, but it’s important.

I will be happy if this will be a warning for younger authors/designers/etc :)

I have 11 years experience in development and team leadership. Eleven years of staying on a chair, in front of the computer…. I work 10-12 hours a day, sometimes more….Before the marketplaces I had a full-time job where I also worked 10-12 hours per day.

Why? Because I like it, I love it and I can’t imagine myself doing something else.

I am not an active person and I laughed when people told me I should be more active, exercise more, etc….Like all young people, I thought I’ll be young for ever :)

Now, since last week, I have a serious back pain and today I wasn’t even able to get up from the bed because of the pain. All because the time spent in front of the computer.

So, just a warning for younger developers and designers:
- take a 10 min break every hour
- trust me, you’ll not be young forever, so take care about your health
- exercise
- be active
- train your eyes and body
- try to not exceed the 8 hours limit of work per day
- eat healthy
- visit the doctor at least once every year

Tell us about you and what you do for your HEALTH :)

Good thinking….Most of us spend a bit too much time on seats in front of our workstations!

Totally agree, all good advice there. :) Nothing much to add, except probably don’t live in a city since they are giving many of us asthma… It’s time to give up the addiction to fossil fuels, traditional cars etc and make a more healthy and happy urban living space. Woops that’s going a bit off topic. :)

Good advices and topic! That’s what I do:

- run every morning on a fresh air recording ideas for new songs in my head + exercising

- more walking

- sleep/awake schedule

- whole food plant based diet

- no mental negativity diet

- writing music and enjoying life :)

I can’t believe it :) if that’s a joke, it’s funny. if it’s real, it’s interesting and sad :(

Ofcourse. How do you think we built [our latest theme that we cannot say the name of because it’s considered self-marketing as if somebody really checks the forums.]?
