    Hi all,

    When you feel like you're burning out, be that in work or studying, what do you do to unwind?
    For me, IT is like a hobby so I'll often have a play with some software, lately that's my ServiceNow instance as I recently started working for them.

    Outside of IT, I'm a big retro gamer. I currently own a retroid pocket 3+ which is great, very small, and has saved me from many a noisy kids party when I take the kids to those.

    I've always gravitated to older games, so despite having a PS5, I still play The Last of Us from 2014, and after watching the Fallout TV show, I'm currently playing Fallout 3 which was released on PS3/Xbox 360, before I move onto 4, New Vegas etc.

    I listen to a bit of music but not as much as I should. I listen to audiobooks when I walk the dog, infact I'll start a new thread on that!

    What do you do?
