Programming feels like a super power sometimes. After years of learning the craft, it is still interesting figuring out how to get a computer to do what you want it to do.
As much as I enjoy figuring out solutions, I also enjoy my time away from my keyboard. And I have found, that often when I get out on hike, it is where I do some of my best thinking.
In 2020, I section-hiked the entire Sheltowee Trace Trail (~350 miles) from around Morehead, KY to Burnt Mill Bridge, TN. Each weekend I headed out, I would come back with many ideas and perspective on some problem I was trying to solve.
I strongly recommend taking a walk/hike/break from your keyboard when you get stuck on something.
