I actually took a one month hiatus from gaming. All shapes and forms. It breathed new life into my hobby as well as making space for a bunch of things I wanted to catch up on. We need to make time to be bored. The constructive kind where you need to get up and do something or risk going crazy. You can use that kind of boredom to accomplish all the things that get shoved on the back burner for the low effort high satisfaction tasks. The other kind is where you are so desensitized by amazing entertainment that everything just tastes bland.
