We aren’t born unhealthy — we become unhealthy through a combination of bad habits and environmental pressures

The Healthy Programmer: Get Fit, Feel Better, and Keep Coding by Joe Kutner

It’s true. When I was young, innocent boy, then I tried to do something new, something interesting. I sat at my Commodore C64 and read books about programming. I loved that, but sometimes I left this desk and I went out to the garden and the park.

Now I grew up (a little bit) and I have not forgotten this. Sometimes I stand up and go to the nearest park, walk up and down, sit on a bench and sometimes I run just for fun. It’s ok. I love that way but how?

Of course, it’s a good idea because when your local machine fails you can restore all data. For example I use git.
