My life outside of programming has definitely been impacted because of programming. Specifically, being able to work remotely (which, in my previous career as a dental tech wasn't possible).
At my current job, I work from home 4 days a week with 1 day in the office. On my work from home days, I usually spend 3-4 hours at my favorite coffee shop. Being a regular there has led me to meeting all kinds of different people and making new friends, even if that's the only place I see them. It's kinda like Cheers. 😁
Remote working is such a big thing at the moment isn't it? Being in the industry I sometimes forget that a lot the massive majority of other careers don't have that option.
