I think this topic is definitely worth being addressed, as it depends a lot on the various approaches and perspectives that developers have towards programming.

As someone with a previous background in music who has had the pleasure of spending time with some really gifted musicians, I know that there are many musicians who love to play and so they devote a lot of their free time to practicing their craft, but there are also many talented musicians that primarily only play during rehearsals, gigs, ect... and feel that doing other activities in their free time helps them to prevent their playing from getting stale or burned out.

So in my opinion, there really isn't a need to feel pressured to constantly be programming, instead, developers should do what they feel will help them live balanced, productive and healthy lives.
