What do you do...

What do you do when developing a website?

For example can you just crack on and develop it or do you have to take frequent breaks? Do you eat while making the site?

I eat & drink a ton (compared to normal) I take too many breaks I feel like as well, they're not just the odd 5-10 minutes I will pop out somewhere and be active I can't stay sat down. I think the strangest thing I've done during it is purchased a new phone contract on a break.

I was just wanting to know what you guys do? (Don't think I am mad, this only applies to developing/ coding sites. Nothing to do with systems)

I only do bits when I'm bored and then I can do it for hours with a cuppa tea every hour.

I have times where I can go for a few hours and not take a break and others when I have to take a break every hour or so. If I'm doing something new that requires me to think more I need more breaks. I'll go for a walk, do some exercises, or just watch a few youtube videos to let my brain relax. Sometimes all of the above. I don't eat while developing, I'll use that as a break too.

I typically take a break every hour or so,

Go get some food,
Go to the gym,
Play basketball,
Lay down.

Anything that allows my brain to just shut down for a bit and not think about design or working on my websites.

We take several tea breaks during development, although it depends on the length of the project as well for example if can complete a website in 6 hours, it means the project is small but still i would take several tea and snack breaks in between it.

Taking a break for a creative task helps me focus and the best comes out when I get back to it.

If you work for too long, you'll end up exhausted, it's good to take breaks, but you know.. you are working, so the more you work, the more you'll do.

If it's a day/two project I often takes lots of mini breaks then a long lunch and go swimming as that takes my mind totally off it

A good thing to do is to have specific timings for your breaks. Like for example you can take a small 10 minutes break in every 2-3 hours of work. This will keep your mind refreshed and you'll also be more productive at work.
