Relevant to the activity I'm trying to make it a habit: "The Healthy Programmer" 😌 pic.twitter.com/xwMX4PIc4l— Mario Carrion (@mariocarrion) September 15, 2017
I didn’t plan to read specific books this september, however after reading The Power of Habit and The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People it really made a lot of sense to me to continue reading books related to building habits. That’s how I found the The Healthy Programmer (affiliate link).
The Healthy Programmer is a book published by The Pragmatic Bookshelf in 2013 that includes a collection of health tips tailored to programmers, to basically help you stay healthy while programming.
All the content in The Healthy Programmer is really simple to follow and a quick read, it includes a checklist of daily activities to follow which is easy to do. The content is relevant even though it was published 4 years ago because practically all the things related to how we do our work are still the same.
Since I finished reading it I started following the suggested exercises and completing the checklist every day, it’s good practice I want to become a habit.
