Sometimes try and get some distance to your code.

    Yeah. Sometimes it's just a matter of relaxing.

    Sometimes it's obvious when you literally step back from it, just another meter and the problem is obvious!

    I have my ritual of a "debug smoke" if I'm stuck with a problem, where I go outside, have a smoke, watch the people down on the streets and force my mind completely off my code. It usually results in a "You're a fucking idiot" - moment when I get back and read myself into it again.
