I finally remembered what it feels like to be burnt out. I completed my coding for the day, so now I want to share my proven technique for getting past it.

    I really like your tip for using a timer, I think I might try the same. I’ve been struggling to find coding time lately and end up studying too late at night then having to repeat things. My goals are to get it done earlier in the day so my brain can process it.

      Late-night studying is the worst! I spent pretty much the entire duration of my Master’s degree on 3rd shift (9 PM – 6 AM). Trying to learn anything that late was such a struggle, even after sleeping all morning/early afternoon. It’s like once it hit 9 PM my brain shut down and I had to force-feed myself the information. I hope you find time to do your coding earlier in the day. I’d recommend using a pomodoro timer (25 minutes of coding + 5 minute break) and do 2-3+ rounds of that as early in the day as you possibly can. It’s the best method I’ve found for retaining information.
