No. not the video game (although that was a fantastic game);

Developer Burnout is what happens when you overflow your brain with self expectations, when you want to be recognized by your superiors and/or when you plan to study for 48h in a day.
What you want to do is plant your feet back on the ground and stop thinking for a second. Think of it as releasing your foot from the gas pedal. WE NEED to do that, weekly, if not daily.
Get yourself some hobbies and free your mind and soul from shackles and set yourself free, up to the point where you won't ruin your professional life.

spot on, @allobrox . It's always a good idea to have both in sync. =)
