Do you believe in the power of taking breaks during intense coding sessions?

Is it beneficial to take a break of about 2 or 3 weeks after a prolonged coding session?

Feel free to share your suggestions, thoughts, or anything else you'd like to add.

If you are feeling burnt out only then breaks can be effective otherwise if you are in a good shape and are solving difficult problems daily then breaks won't be that effective.

Yes, often in the middle of intense coding session I begin an equally intense edging session, seems to double my performance in contest, but only on weekdays.

    Your edge comments everywhere are getting kind of annoying.

      Seems like you need to learn to edge to understand the benefits of edging. Mohammad Ghandi once said, an edge a day, keeps the doctor away.

I believe in the power of having a life. I mean, the reason why I quit for two years is because I was spending 6 hours a day doing competitive programming. But if you trust the process and do problems at your own rate, then you'll improve and you don't need to grind every day.
