'Leave work at work' is so hard!
First, great article! Thank you for sharing, and I think you're not alone. Every passionate developer I know thinks about work all the time. But is it really work if you love doing it and learning new things? "work" for some reason does not do it justice. I think a big part of it is changing one's outlook on "work".
The stress that comes with it is, I believe, inevitable. I love my work so much that I spend extra hours coding, reading about coding, or writing about coding. This gets overwhelming and exhausting at times, but I know at the end of the day I only do what I can manage and enjoy the discoveries along the way.
Everyone should have a healthy relationship with the things they love. If that happens to be "work", take some time to reflect and understand your limits so you can continue to do the things you love and keep your sanity! :)
Thank you! That's great advice :)
