Make sure to take breaks. In addition to the regular sleep and not coding all day long advice, take small breaks throughout the day. It can be good to get up and walk around every hour or maybe less. You could also use a Pomodoro timer to switch between more focused work and taking a break or more relaxing work.

Also, have a hobby outside of coding. Watch movies, tv, read books, getting outside, crafting something with your hands, etc. A hobby that gets you off a computer can be helpful so you aren't staring at a computer screen all day.
