This week is full of awesome CSS stuff that people have dreamt of only some years ago. And we have other articles that I’ve been long waiting for: Great custom maps, a modern end-to-end testing framework and a fast Electron alternative. But first of all, the topic of the week:

People always talk about quality time for work, family, fitness, self-care, or sports… but what about having leisure time that allows you to think about nothing and let your mind pause for a bit?
It’s as important, yet we get the idea of this being wasted time. The problem is that it’s hard to cut the lines between too much and just the right amount.
If you work focused the whole day, have been playing with children in the late afternoon (without hanging on the smartphone), and cooked the meal it’d be just fair to watch TV (or streaming) for a bit in the evening.
Of course, it’s often better to meditate, listen to music, or read a book than to watch TV or get lost on your computer reading and watching. But from time to time we also need this time where we allow ourselves to do nonsensical stuff.
