I'm feeling burnt out right now--and have for the past week. I can't seem to concentrate on code related stuff. I took a couple of days and did nothing related to programming, but that didn't seem to help. This could be more than just the tired sort of burnout..I feel no urge to jumpstart myself like I usually do when this feeling comes along. I have hardly been able to even bring myself to look through some of the more serious forums here this week...ugh.
Any suggestions out there?

i had the same problem for the last 2 weeks... but that was related to final exams
maybe you are stressed about something? now that my finals are over, i am on a role again. of course, i just got Redhat Linux 7.1 in the mail yesterday, so i have a whole new project to start on tonight.

You may try scoring a few goals with an imaginery football in your room. Remember the imaginery football have to be driven hard into the net. But beware don't kick into something hard. This will strengthen your kidneys.

I think everyone goes through this sort of thing from time to time. I couldn't bring myself to visit the Ranch for a couple of months once. Just go with it, don't try to force yourself. Your body and mind are probably trying to tell you something and it's up to your conscious self to figure out what it is.
Instead of worrying about all the things you can't or won't do, spin it round, and try to find what you really do want to do. Once you see past all the artifical habits we impose on ourselves you can really learn a lot.
