As a software developer, it is important to take a rest now and again to avoid burn out. What I do to get away and clear my mind, is hiking and photography. It allows me to get away from most technology to clear my and return refreshed.
The things I love about hiking is exploring new places and enjoying the scenic view. I live in central Illinois, we don’t have much nearby. If I drive a couple of hours south I have a national forest that gives me hundreds of miles of trails with interesting views. Seeing these relaxes me and allows me to clear my mind.
I encourage others to share what they do unwind from developing.
