We are continuing our celebrating of sysadmins this month with another poll. This time, we want to know what you love to do "AFK" (away from keyboard). When you're not perusing system logs, are you lost in your favorite novel? Aside from the office, do you spend most of your time in the kitchen either cooking or baking? Or are you breathing in the fresh air, tending to your garden, biking, or hiking?
Having a healthy hobby can, in fact, improve your performance as a sysadmin. Hobbies help us humans reduce negative stress, enhance creativity, and amp up our confidence. Plus, they give us a great way to build our community and meet new people.
There's nothing like stepping away from the keyboard after a long workday and enjoying your favorite hobby. Take our poll or tell us more about it in the comments. Remember, Sysadmin Appreciation Day is July 26th.
