Meditation techniques for studying, coding and living better
I would like to know if there are some people here following some meditation techniques during their daily routines. I noticed taking the quiz in different moments of the day that the results may vary also significantly according to my levels of stress/anger.
I think also other students may benefit from this, so I am posting it here.

Davide Pugliese, I have been programming for years and I know exactly what you are talking about. There are several things that tend to work for me...if I can get up and wander about a 5 minute walk followed by a minute or two of sitting and deep breathing really help, if I am "chained" to my work area it helps me to put on "chill" or "new age" music through my earphones, lay my head on the desk and deep breathe. Great question.

while not necessarily a technique, standing desks are becoming pretty popular in most tech companies. Not sure how much they help, but you might be interested in checking one out

Davide, I'd strongly recommend checking out the Pomodoro Technique if you haven't already. It structures work into 25-minute activity sessions, followed immediately by 5-minute breaks. I find the separation forces me to pace myself and by doing so, I'm less likely to be burned out by the end of the day. Take a look at the above link for more information. Good luck! :)
