have a kitkat

I have played poker almost everyday for 3 years straight, in that time I have not had longer than one week away from poker, and I am starting to feel burned out with it. I have decided to take a long-ish break from playing and instead of playing poker dedicate that time to exercise. I usually play around 160hours a month so I dont know if I can go from exercise once a month to 4 hours+ every day without killing myself. Any advice for what I can do in my break from poker? Also how do you know when you are fully recovered and the time is right to come back?

My guess is about a month or so before my mind is clear again

bonus points if you can figure out how the two videos above are related

A month is a long time, my friend. Maybe twoish weeks? And don't go overboard with exercise. That's a horrible, horrible idea. You'll hurt yourself. Gradually work in to it. Why not pick a half marathon to start training for?

Read a ton of books. Not poker books, finance books or economic books. But books. Real books. This is coming from an English teacher, but I think it is good advice. Hit me up if you want some recommendations.

I've just got my hands on 4 new books

The Mental Game of Poker by Tendler
DUCY by Skalansky
Analytical No Limit Holdem by Bakker
Raisers Edge by Elky

I would be interested in other book recommendations though
