Description

Take care of the most important thing, your psychophysical well-being, and be efficient about it. You don’t need to be hungry (well, just a little bit), do lots of exercise (well, just a little bit) and spend a lot of time and money (well, just a little bit… uhm, there seems to be a pattern :-) ). You just need to take care of your body using the same thing that lets you program computers: your mind. No, the human body is not “a machine”, as it’s often said: it’s much more complex than that. Nonetheless, knowledge of a few facts, some guiding principles, and some tech tools (we’re geeks after all, aren’t we? :-) ) can definitely improve your life.
