Are you properly handling the stress in your dev life right now? Being stressed out because you have pending code to write or not being able to stare at your IDE for longer than 10 minutes without tabbing out and browsing the Web — are both symptoms of developer burnout. In other words, you’ve spent so much of your energy coding that you no longer can stand it. This happens to all of us senior and junior devs alike. It’s the problem of having a job that sometimes is also a hobby. When that happens, you love coding so much that you spend nine hours working on it and then a few extra working on your personal projects. Don’t worry though — at least not too much — because there are ways to avoid burnout. You just have to understand what you’re going through first.
