Discussion on: Can coding breaks be too long?

This can depend on your passion for it. Since my passion for it is high, any extended break from coding would make me want to get back into it. I experience this with hobby projects that I have a lot of passion in. I burn out over a period of time, but when someone else brings attention to the project, you begin to see its worth and when you look at the code again, it ignites a feeling of excitement like when you started it in the beginning.

I would heavily recommend coding breaks, and the only way I could say it is too long is if you have an urge to dive back in but you hold yourself back. Once you dive back in, its like scratching an itch you didn't realize you had.
