I feel like I should pick up a hobby that doesn't involve a computer, something outdoorsy. Anyone else feel the same way?

    @Torbuntu depending on if there are hiking trails where you live, hiking to find a nice reading spout is a great way to read (one of my favorite hobbies), exercise, and connect with nature again.

    Living in the hills in the middle of nowhere, I have trails everywhere. It's awesome

    I've always enjoyed hiking.

    Though not outdoorsy, if you want something that's good exercise and played indoors/even at work, Table Tennis is a great sport. I highly recommend if you think you might like stuff like that.

    I ended up turning to music and getting a bass guitar. It's nice, when you're frustrated with the rigid nature of coding, to switch to a task that's more about the feeling than the rules & structure.

    I do a lot of cycling now. Good to go out and clear your head. Also lots of apps and fitness tracking gadgets suitable for a developer.

    I have run at least 5km each morning for 2 years and I love it! I also work a lot in my garden, it's very realaxing for me to dig my hands into the dirt.

    Bouldering is very much like programming (problem solving, efficient algorithms, teamwork, ...). Maybe give it a try 😉

    I'm half car guy and half computer guy. While I won't suggest you spend an average month's income on a project car, it can prove fun if you're into it.

    Other than that I'd suggest what pretty much everyone else is saying: find somewhere to hike/jog and pick up a good book.
