This happened a lot when I first started and honestly still happens now after a whole day of intense problem solving.
Make sure you drink plenty of water and have regular breaks. I used to go hard on the caffeine to concentrate but after a while I found all it did was make me feel worse!
Mc-Lovin592yPsst ! You are getting old
Lyniven47542yI very rarely code for more than an hour straight, breaks are useful
myss45842yfollowing for tips and tricks
Pyjong12352yIt's the headphones doing that. Try without them.
Get to know you limits.
If you can go 3-4 hours straight, cool.
If not, no biggey, just take a break / walk or what ever and come back.
My day generally goes something like:
8am - start
10am - coffee break
10:15pm - start again
12pm - lunch
1pm - start again
3pm - coffee break
3:15pm - start again
4pm - go home
Can be thrown off with meetings and production issues but a nice day would look something like that.
The breaks aren't for the coffee, it's for the mental break so you can gather your thoughts and destress if needed, hell use them as a walk around the car park or around the block if your not into coffee.
arcioneo7402yFunny thing, I've been doing this 15+ years and yesterday applied a huge refactoring, unit testing and a lot of changes, was huge, feel proud of myself.
Today I cannot think about anything, spent the day reading rants and memes, is like my brain got exhausted.
rant1ng47642yJust pop an adderall or speed, you'll voice for 2 days straight, literally.
Of course, there is a price to pay for this lol
Exactly. Actually it's $3 he in Canada, in this one town. Half the totem dies it, its an epidemic.
But most people use it to get high .. I actually need amphetamine as a medicine. Maybe not use speed as, like, the delivery vehicle ... I'm sure by now I've had a fair share of drano and brake fluid or whatever the fuck
they put in it
Rx adderall is better..... Just can't find any...
know anyone that could help?
