Ironically, coding pulled me away from coding. There was a period in my life where I was involved in 3-4 projects and I spent almost all my time coding. I would wake up at 5 a.m. to code up until midnight, with small breaks to eat and shower.
Not my brightest idea that's for sure :)
Burn out is a real thing! Glad you're back. I find my interest in programming in my free time ebbs and flows and not forcing myself to do it is the best thing for me.
Definitely, now everyday I have a couple hours dedicated to movies/series, about anything but code. And my weekends are code-free as well. I'm still trying to find a balance :)
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
