    I very much agree on learning by immersion. I've heard about this on one of the episode of Syntax podcast and this is what I'm doing right now as an aspiring programmer. Follow some good figures on the industry on Twitter, join some Discord chat groups on programming, and it inspires you to do some more side projects. So yeah, a good refresher.

    1. Exercise, Eat healthy and Sleep well, so you feel energized and your mind is revitalized.
    2. Read, Play Chess, Solve Riddles (Sudoku, Rubik's cube, etc) to train your logic and problem solving skills.

    Hats off man!! Giving a talk on something which you're still new to, is a big dare. You have my utmost respect for that. Keep rocking and keep learning. 🙂
