Might sound strange, but "don't sit in the chair".

Explained: First of all you have the psychological effect that your body and mind recognize it as a place of rest and sleep and therefore will "induce" a drousy effect.
Secondly, make sure to move more. You get energy by burning energy (in a strange way). Try sleeping when you just ran a few miles and you'll know what I'm talking about.

If you do sit in the chair, make sure to stand up regularly. If you're watching TV, stand up each commercial and do something. (toilet break, clean up kitchen a bit, ... I personally try to do 30 situps and 10 push up each commercial break, that amounts to around 150 situps and 50 push ups every evening Smile | :) )

Straw Poll

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
