The past couple of days have been, like:

- I can’t focus on my side project
- I can’t bring myself to study for the AWS certification exam I’m taking next week
- I haven’t had the will to do a single code challenge
- It’s hard to write cover letters for jobs when no one has responded to a single job application I’ve done in the past couple of weeks
- Even doing things that traditionally give me joy ... bring me no joy.

Is this what burnout feels like?

    I'm sorry to hear that. You can perceive burnout as another opportunity to relax though:"forget it", flying in lucid dreams, and stuff like that 🤔😜

    @vintprox What is this “relax” of which you speak?

    Ive been feeling the same way for a while. I haven't touched any of my personal projects in months. I don't know if it's burnout or just quarantine getting to me.

    @AmyShackles I'm afraid I cannot give any worthy advice here, because I am not familiar with your habits, but finding this answer yourself is priority #1 ✔️

    Considering the unemployment stats for many countries is off the charts. It may indicate they are receiving high volumes of applicants.

    @vintprox Is flying in lucid dreams supposed to be limited to relax time? I've been doing it for as long as I can remember.
