I think doing IT stuff 24/7 is the recipe for brain death.
At the weekends, I'll try to minimize coding.
Games, cooking, local food market of regional suppliers, walking...
Anything but work.
C0D4616565dGo do something that requires zero brain power, use this time to chill out that's not related to a pc.
Or be a robot and work on side projects and fill that time with more problems 🙄
iiii29365dWhy do you need to work all the time?
F197391925dI am going through the same phase. It seems like we are aging and inching towards @C0D4 😋
What worked for me is slowing down on the side projects and taking some time off periodically.
We have been hustling for so long that it has become a lifestyle which is that urge of being productive hangs at back of the mind.
We slowly need to break this habit and at the same time make sure we don't abandon our side projects.
Same! While I have intent and interest to do side projects, I just get so tired from work that I need to take most nights and weekends off. I'm not a coding machine. Also I find now that everything is trending full stack it's a lot to keep up on and can be mentally draining.
Very rarely, I can't bring myself not to work on a project or learn stuff that would be useful for me, work or my hobbies.
