I think most people do. Breaking up routines and exposing oneself to new people or environments can help.

@rrhoover Seems to be the case - thank you!

I usually take a break, go for a walk, go see my friends, play guitar or watch a very silly show to rest my brain!

@valentinprgnd I like the idea of the walk / new show watching. Will give it ago.

Definitely. Going somewhere new, going offline or just taking a proper break often help fix this for me!

Aside from taking breaks and walking around (away from the computer), one hack that works for me is stepping back and thinking about the simple things I'm grateful for. Being able to breathe, having two legs to walk, a job that I love, etc. Just helps with level-setting on how privileged I am to be alive.
