For those of us that are self taught and are still learning the necessary skills to become a developer, we emphasize a lot on the grind, the hustle and nonstop work. We eat sleep and breathe code. There's an adopted mindset that we gotta work all day every day to get to our "end goal" faster.
Working hard and dedicating yourself is absolutely the best and only way to achieve your goals, but there has to be a balance in that. We all know what burnout feels like and how exhausting ourselves can make us completely unproductive and just pure lazy.
I usually find some time usually after work or after the gym to escape and unwind doing something or watching what I enjoy! I get to escape and think about nothing but what I'm occupied by and zone out. It's my moment of solace and peace from all the negatives that can happen in our daily lives. I encourage you guys to do the same! .
So as the NBA season starts next Tuesday, you already know what I'll be doing to unwind at night 😏
What do y'all do to unwind and chill on some downtime? Lemme know in the comments!
