Coding to relax from obligations

Going through a stressfull period at work at the moment.
Finally got a chance to code without interruptions this afternoon.

It was pure bliss, just me, the problems in front me, and the ecstatic feeling of flow.

I am considering asking my manager to have a "vacation" from my team/teck lead role to rest up a bit, might even be a good opportunity for me to train a standin for when i am on vacation etc.

Anyone else have similar experiences?
