Get Off Your Duff

As software developers, we tend to spend a lot of time on our butt. This is known to be harmful to one’s health. I’ve also read that working out for an hour a day doesn’t really make up for the 8-10 that we spend on our asses.

One suggestion is to stand up frequently throughout the day, which is supposed to help. To do that, you need a reminder and if you’re Windows user like myself, this handy little tool will help remind you to get up. It’s called BreakTaker and it’s free.

It’s a great little tool and it’s configurable. All you have to do is get off your duff for a few minutes when it pops up (I ignore it often, but I’m trying to change my ways).
