Dec 16-17th: Dev Holidays Guide ⛄️

I found myself a little overwhelmed finishing my last project while getting ready for the holidays. I got burnout trying to conduct a burnout survey. πŸ™„

It wasn't just the survey, but months of stress with my startup, career options, caregiving duties, & relearning JS & React.

So I wrote down some advice & tactics to help me stop being anxious while I figure stuff out.

πŸŽ„ Today's Bah Humbug Tip of the Day.

🎁 Today's Options

πŸŽ„ Yesterday's Bah Humbug Tip of the Day.
🎁 Yesterday's Options

I decided to publish and share these tips as a Dev series & Twitter threads. Let me know in the comments if any of these tips helps.

If a you're struggling w/ burnout & open to sharing your story, please take the State Of Devs survey. πŸ—³ Thanks!

Yeah, a brain dump is definitely a stress reliever.

Just kidding, it's a personal preference. But you can change your theme, font, etc. in your settings.

The more you know. 🌈
