Discussion on: I don't code outside of work

My feelings are the same recently. I used to code every chance I got, all weekend, before/after work, you name it. After coming very close to a burnout I've realised how important it is to have a break and put the computer down for a while. This is a marathon, not a sprint and you have to look after your mental health. That means taking time off, getting out in nature and not spending every waking moment learning yet another framework or language.
