My husband is an amazing programmer. He now works primarily with Python, but made his way through Ruby, Angular, being extremely interested in Go, Elixir, Vue, and now finishing reading about Clojure. He's quite passionate, and his love for programming makes him sit in front of his PC 24/7.
And I can't do anything about it. I tried to convince him being more physically active, but everything he likes to do is to code.
I understand this, I do care for programming, I write about it, but I can't stand the impact coding makes on his health. Eyes, nerves, spine, stomach, head. He thinks too much and can't get a good sleep.
Probably, I should insist on splitting the time for activities and work/hobby, but every time it's harder and harder to get him distracted from a laptop without a quarrel.
I don't want him to stop programming (because I really admire his skills and passion), but I want him to be healthy.
Did you have a situation similar to mine? What did you do for your body not to suffer from being a passionate programmer?
