In the day, I had to work for many hours in front of computer, because it's my job.
In the night, I read books and practise the code in my computer, because it's my hobby.

my eyes needs rest. how you guys handle this when your eyes ask for some relaxation ? :rolleyes:

ahh... get out... relax and enjoy some sunshine... maybe read a magazine or two... play some basketball... usually being active helps me rest my eyes.

Seriously, I usually just go to sleep or take a shower. Also, most of my time spent coding is in a composition book, and not a computer screen, which I suspect helps.

Well if you dont have on of those glare/radiation guards, you should invest in one, it really helps the eyes when you are in front of the computer a lot. Also when working on the computer, you tend not to blink as much, so you should rest your eyes for a minute, ever half hour or so, or try to blink more often.

Sports always help too.

>> Didn't you mean ice over eyes???

that would be fine too...

but it's better to get a screw-driver, take out your eyes, put them on the ice...

It's probably a good idea just to get some rest and have a nap or something. But if you can't afford a very long sleep, it's better not to sleep at all because you end up feeling more tired than when you started. In that case, a cup of coffee always does the trick.

I think QuestionC hit the nail on the head there. You will find that you code better if you start coding on paper first. When I began programming I felt compelled to sit in front of the computer to work. Eye strain and fatigue set in. So I started keeping a little journal and found that not only was I more relaxed, but more productive. I still use a notebook and never once miss the old way...

Anyway, fatigue is a healthy sign that you are learning! After all, practice makes perfect. Just look at me! :p

am I missing something here? Of course the paper becomes involved..you cant just whack it into a computer...anyhow thats another story......


See two posts above-that is the answer-think of it as a power nap!


Airline pilots going from UK to eg.Australia, on the way to far east they will take at least 30 mins power nap.....it is proven that a minimum of 30 mins will increase your mental ability etc etc. If pilots do it, why not coders? Oh and from the same post-coffee is NO WHERE near as effective as the short sleep!

oh man--you are all aware right that from UK to Aussie land involves a stop at singapore or hong kong or wherever? Above post may not have made sense otherwise!

I am trying to convince my boss of that but he prefeers me to stay awake while at work.

He just gets extra caffineated coffee.
